Abu Dhabi –
This is a complete opposite experience than being in dubai .
Abu dhabi ,being the capital of UAE has a pure Arabic vibe to its location , with a mosque almost on every 1 km distance .Its a 90 minute drive from Dubai , and the only route of travel is through road ways by public or private transport.
The two important highlights of this beautiful emirate is –
1) GRAND MOSQUE –
You just can’t get enough of this beautiful and divine mosque in Abudhabi , the largest mosque in the country .
Both men’s and women’s have to be appropriately dressed to visit this mosque .
2) The Ferrari world –
This is the place for thrill seekers ,first Ferrari themed adventure park having the world's fastest roller coaster and many other mid level roller coasters .
Its quite huge and can take up to 4-5 hours to thoroughly enjoy the experience if you have time on your hand.
Few things to Know :-
1)First is first, 1AED(Dirham) = 17.75INR , which means Dubai cannot be a cheapest place to visit for Indians . Metro Trains are the best to travel around if you are on a budget as travel can get expensive by private cars /and cabs.
2)Skip the burgers and pizza’s and try their Lebanese and Arabic food along with great Arabic sheesha’s which are the highlights .
4)You can go the souks in Bur Dubai for Spices ,dates and zaffran shopping .
Dates can also be bought at the Dates market in Abu dhabi.
5) Take a ride on Abra at the Dubai creek to have a lively night view of the downtown.
6)Book all your attractions tickets online , as you can get great deals on them instead of booking at the counters.
7)It's best to dress appropriately in UAE , even though you should not have any problem in Dubai and Abudhabi , other parts of UAE can be a little conservative on this part .
