This is an amazing holy place and should be on the "must see" list for all visits to Abu Dhabi. Be respectful of local and religious customs and dress accordingly, or you will be provided with appropriate attire when you arrive.

As far as I know, you have two options: 1. Take a taxi to Al Wahda Bus Station (downtown Abu Dhabi) and then take an intercity bus to Dubai. You can choose two destinations: Ibn Battuta Metro Station or Al Ghubaiba Bus... More
