For scores of foreign football fans, the road to the World Cup in Doha starts every morning at a barren campsite in the middle of the desert.
Visitors who found hotels in central Doha booked up or have settled at dust-blown tent village in Al Khor, where there are no locks on tents. Some visitors said they enjoyed the setting, but lamented the transportation arrangements.
The manufactured cabins are some of the cheapest available accommodations, starting at roughly $200 a night. Every few minutes, planes roar over the village to the old airport, which has been reopened to handle daily shuttle flights to the tournament.
