"Drinking water" Top 5 Page for this destination Abu Dhabi Tourist Trap Tip by amna24

Abu Dhabi Tourist Traps: 11 reviews and 16 photos

One of the crazy things about life in the Emirates is that, especially during the summer months, the water is already hot when it comes out of the cold tap (except if you stay in 5 or 4 star hotel you will not notice that). Tap water is safe to drink if filtered, but not particularly pleasant (desalinated).

Unique Suggestions: It is usually preferred to drink the locally bottled mineral waters that are widely available. Bottled water is usually served in hotels, restaurants and you can buy from any grocery for less than 1$.

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
