Visiting Abu Dhabi

I have visited Abu Dhabi 2 or 3 times during my time living in the Middle East and (nearly) went to live there due to my husband's job, but in the end we chose to live in Dubai instead!
This is not to say that Abu Dhabi does not have it's merits. It has a wide range of restaurants to eat in, many shopping possibilities, a nice corniche to walk along, some good hotels - the most impressive being the grand Emirates Palace! and several beach clubs.
There is a Heritage Village, a fort, a good library, a fish market, dhow building yard and many other sights for the visitor to see.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Nice weather, Emirates Palace, good beach clubs, enough things to do
  • Cons:Not the prettiest place
  • In a nutshell:Worth a trip
  • Last visit to Abu Dhabi: Nov 2007

    What a beautiful page you've created here with some of the not-so-famous spots around Abu Dhabi.
