    If there’s one thing you do in Abu Dhabi, visit the Grand Mosque. We were lucky to arrive on time for a free guided tour (just past the entrance to the actual mosque) by Fatima (guide 181). She was incredibly knowledgeable and spoke so eloquently during our tour. As a group we were able to access areas of the mosque away from the crowds and learn about the intricate details of its construction, operation, and significance to its worshippers. We visited just before sunset so that we could walk to Wahat Al Karama across the road to observe the mosque lit up as the sun set (also great for photos of the mosque).

    The building itself is worth seeing; if you are an art enthusiast then the Louvre in Abu Dhabi is great to see, but I felt that the exterior design of the building was the only truly "Emirati" quality of this place. Expect it to be very much an extension of the Louvre in Paris.

    Beautiful hotel. The decor is awesome. Best paintings and ambiance. The opulence of the oil rich country is visible here.

    The is by far the best place that I have watched a Formula 1 race so far. However, I am looking forward to Las Vegas. One day, maybe Laguna Seca in Monterey, California will make the list.

    Nice 3d movies makes us enjoy very well also solo performances on the way are equally good and the thrill rides are too good.

    There is plenty to see along the Corniche; there are bikes for you to rent at the corners and it is very safe to walk along at any time. Would love to stay around here.

    To be honest, after reading the reviews I was a bit apprehensive to go to this theme park but I have to admit that I was wrong.

    I thought with the heat, it might be a good idea to go late afternoon but this was absolutely not necessary! The whole theme park is indoors and air conditioned, so any time you go you’ll be alright.

    We went on an off season time and didn’t wait longer than 5 minutes in any of the queues. We finished the whole park in like 3 hours and had time to try some of the rides for a second or third time.

    The staff are lovely, polite, and go above and beyond to look after you and make sure your little ones have a good time. My 10-year-old boy had a really good time.

    The only reason I gave it a four star is that it’s fairly small. It’s like 20% the size of Alton Towers.

    Minding you, without proof of negative COVID test you cannot enter so have your certificate handy.

    The visit of Qasr AL Watan was amazing. What a splendor! Jewels everywhere, we did not know at what we should look at first. The visit of this building is a must!

    Yas Mall is one of the known mall in Abu Dhabi. What makes this mall special that it lays within yas island entertainment area.

    You can visit the mall as a resting/dinning place after visiting any of Yas entertaining theme parks (Ferrari world, Warner Brothers and Yas Waterpark)

    The mall has everything! From cafes to gracious restaurants, to plying areas and enjoyable architectural scenery.

    It is perfect place for family

    Absolutely the best thing we did in Abu Dhabi, hands down. If you have any desire to learn more about Falcons and Falconry this is a must-do. Our guide, Hassan, was incredibly knowledgeable but just as importantly, funny! He was able to keep a crowd that spoke at least four different languages, engaged for the entire tour. It was amazing to be up close and personal to witness a bird “pedicure” and also to watch a feeding from very close up. Even watching a surgery in action was amazing and shows how much these birds are really cared for.

    I can’t say it enough: do this tour!

    One of the best beaches where i have had the oportunity to bathe and enjoy during the time I live in Khalidiya has been on the corniche beach. Really a quiet beach, celan and relatively close even to get there walk.
    Perphaps the only thing that the beach lacks to be more comfortable is to have some umbrellas in the public area to cover yourself from the sun.
    My husband and I used to train for triathlon swimming there al 6 am.

    Made a quick trip here. Many stores to chose from. The area is beautiful with so much to do if the mall is not your thing. Walking around the area if you have the time would be worth it.
