    I really enjoyed your tips about Abu Dhabi. It seems to be a beautiful place with excellent shopping. It looks as though it would be an expensive place to visit. Thanks for that great warning tip.

    Hi cielo, great page on abu dhabi and it seems to be a nice place! I nearly got a chance to visit this place a few years ago for a meeting, but my company decided no need to go.
