A QUICK GUIDE TO ABU DHABI


 Abu Dhabi, the largest city in the United Arab Emirates and the capital of the U.A.E. Abu Dhabi neighbour Dubai, is only 1 hour and 40 minutes away. Packed with so much tourists and world  breaking records attractions/sightseeing. Abu Dhabi would have to be one of my favourite cities in the world - the culture, people and breath taking sights, you can say that I fell in love with Abu Dhabi. 


A QUICK GUIDE TO ABU DHABI

+ Getting Around: Taxi's would have to be your best option, from the Abu Dhabi Airport to the hotel I stayed at (Jumeriah at Etihad Towers) it cost 80 dirhams (around $28 AUD) which took around 40 minutes (depends on traffic, of course) to get there.

+ Where to Stay:


Jumeriah at Etihad Towers - the complex is made up of five towers (Fast & Furious 7 was filmed here) - three residential towers, one office tower and the Jumeriah at Etihad Towers hotel and is 4 km from Marina Mall.

Emirates Palace -  the luxury 5 star hotel and is the definition of an unrivalled Arabian fantasy and is also 4 km from the Marina Mall. 

Yas Viceroy Abu Dhabi Hotel - This luxury hotel is only 2 km from the Yas Island Marina Circuit and is 3 km from Ferrari World Abu Dhabi amusement park, 

+ Getting By: In Dubai, the dress code is much more relaxed (women are allowed to were shorts etc) due to being a very tourist city while in Abu Dhabi the dress code is semi conservative but no shorts shorts or mini skirts are allowed, or anything that is showing too much skin! In the Mosque it is much more strict - women are required to be fully covered from the head, wrists to ankles (yes I wore a long maxi skirt and I still had to pull it down even more). 

In Abu Dhabi, do not, I repeat, do not  show any public display of affection (so no kissing and cuddling in public guys)!! During Ramadan, no one is permitted to eat or drink in public places as it is the Islamic month of fasting and lastly don't forget to tip the workers at your hotel (something I learnt, since in Australia tipping is not a big deal here). 

+ What to See
Shiek Zayad Mosque

Ferrari World Abu Dhabi

Marina Mall

Emirates Palace

Yas Island

Yas Island Marina Circuit 

4x4 Desert Safari - Emirates Adventures

 + What to Eat & DrinkArabic food is one of my favourite food ever! Try their mint and lime drink, so good! Their hummus, grilled halloumi and falafel are so yummy too. Don't forget to try their arabic sweets - dates are the best!
