Layover in Doha; worth getting out and exploring?

Hi there, I have a 9 hour layover in Doha, and am wondering if it's worth getting into the city and exploring. Mainly:

- Is it easy to clear immigration?

- Is it easy to get downtown and check it out?

- If it's not worth any of that, does the airport have anything interesting to pass the time?

Any advice at all would be surely welcome!

Thank you!

Which time are you landing ? when does your 9 hour start? if you are landing at 1 am probably not worth it to go out.

Which day of the week are you coming?

- yes it is easy to clear immigration

- Yes

- Oryx Lounge

I suggest that you read some previous post on this forum, there is wealth of information.

Take Care

Depending on the time you arrive, you can explore the city a bit. And it's worth to see the city rather than spending so much time in the Lounge.
