In many ways, Doha is not so different from Shenzhen because it is a modern city. Like Shenzhen, most of Doha did not exist thirty or forty years ago. Yes, it has loads of skyscrapers and impressive modern buildings, just like SZ, and there are even some parks. Both cities are near the sea. But that is where the similarities end. Doha was built by Nepalis, Indians, Filipinos, anyone that the Qataris could get to do the work. Shenzhen, on the other hand, was built by the Chinese. Okay, they had hired some foreign architects perhaps, but all of the real work was done by Chinese workers.
China is well known for offering a vast variety of different foods. The very concept of “Chinese cuisine” is hard define because the country is so big and the dishes vary so much from place to place. One passion that does unite the country, however, is a love for street food. One of the greatest things about street food is that it is impossibly cheap, as you can often get a full meal for less than a euro.
