"Capital of the UAE" Abu Dhabi by Durfun
Abu Dhabi Travel Guide: 462 reviews and 1,530 photos
The capital certainly needs a building that is grand and imposing. Hence after Dubai's propulsion into the limelight due to it's flamboyant and technology-stretching architectural style, Abu Dhabi also decided to spruce up.
Abu Dhabi's answer was The Emirates Palace, sitting in a prime location on the impressive Corniche by the azure blue water.
There is a lot of gold used in the interior decoration of this building. Halls are grand and impressive, with fine reception areas and sofas to relax on and take in the decor of this building.
Gardens are attractive, both in the front (with fountains), and back, right off the beach.
This building is converted into a hotel, with awesome rooms & suites, decorated in gold leaf.
Stylish and modern skyscrapers are to be found all over the place, with three attractive ones right beside Emirates Palace.
You'll find plenty of luxury yatchs moored here, with the tall Marina Tower's Tiara revolving restaurant offering panoramic all-round views of the area.
The Marina Mall is well-stocked with designer boutiques and stores to cater for all your needs.
An indoor ski slope is currently undergoing completion, to rival Dubai's operational slope!
- Pros:Clean, attractive, well-designed
- Cons:Heavy traffic during peak-hours
- In a nutshell:The grand capital that funds the UAE & it's wild projects!
