When we compare the travel costs of actual travelers between Doha and Antalya, we can see that Doha is more expensive. And not only is Antalya much less expensive, but it is actually a significantly cheaper destination. Since Doha is in Middle East and Antalya is in Europe, this is one of the main reasons why the costs are so different, as different regions of the world tend to have overall different travel costs. So, traveling to Antalya would let you spend less money overall. Or, you could decide to spend more money in Antalya and be able to afford a more luxurious travel style by staying in nicer hotels, eating at more expensive restaurants, taking tours, and experiencing more activities. The same level of travel in Doha would naturally cost you much more money, so you would probably want to keep your budget a little tighter in Doha than you might in Antalya.
