All of the Emirates of UAE Abu Dhabi is my favorite one. It is quite, pleasant and clean. Somehow Abu Dhabi attracts much less tourists in comparison to Dubai, but a large number of business travelers.
Abu Dhabi has the largest Mosque to show to the visitors, a unique car museum and the Emirates Palace – the most expensive hotel in the world (also the most expensive in terms of construction).
Sheikh Zayed Mosque.
Even not being a Muslim you still can visit this largest Mosque in the Emirates. It is very beautiful and bright. The white walls and floors make it look very special, even magical I could say.
If you have tattoos or wearing something inappropriate for visiting Mosque, you will be offered a Kandura (for man) or a black obaya (for ladies) to cover up. It also makes you experience very special.
The Emirates Palace.
The Emirates Palace is not just a hotel. It is a place of interest as it is the actual palace, which Abu Dhabi Sheikh owns. As it is so huge, it can’t just serve as a personal residence, therefore it is used for the good purposes of accommodating city guests. However, any moment this place can get closed for a couple of days if requested by Sheikh and used for his entertainment.
The Palace is so huge that many of the employees say that they stop smoking as running to the smoking area takes over 30 minutes while a break can only last 5.
Everything here smells of luxury…
When we arrived to the hotel, we did not have to wait for rooms as the number of them is so high that there is always a room available. As for the amenities we were surprised by a bottle of wine and 24 karat macaroons served on the side.
It is a nice place to visit, but also takes a while to work around exploring.
Sheikh’s Car Museum.
Not even many locals know about this place. It is located out of the city center in the dessert. The Car Museum shows the private collection of Sheikh’s cars. Here you’ll probably see cars that you’ve never seen in your life. Moreover, you probably did not imagine existed.
It is probably the only place in the world, where you can find a place out in the dessert and even walk around it to see how it looks from all angles.
Unfortunately, due to the weather and tight schedule, we only managed to visit Abu Dhabi for a couple of days, but if ever we return, I will share more!
