Stuck for something to do on your day off. Why not pack some snacks, fill yer tank with petrol and head up north to the abandoned village of Jamil.

Driving within the speed limit you can get there from the centre of Doha in around one and a half hours.

You can explore the ghost town and get some great photos. But please be very respectful to the location. Don’t be selfish and cause any damage that can ruin this errr…. ruined village any further.
