Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque Center

DO NOT MISS THIS. we have been three times now ands still staggering to see. We did a day trip from Dubai especially to see this mosque, and we were not disappointed. It is stunning. Beautiful white marble (with inlaid floral design), the largest carpet in the world, stunning chandeliers, beautiful water pools, 82 domes, exquisite design and yet peaceful & worthy of prayer. It is definitely the highlight of my trip to the UAE.

Qasr Al Watson is grandiose and a must when visiting Abu Dhabi. I don’t think I have ever seen such a majestic, luxurious, enchanting and stunning palace in my entire life!!! It is decorated with impeccable taste and rich in history. The marble covering the entire palace is superb. I will revisit again!!

The Corniche

Reviewed By JIHAD40 - United Arab Emirates, null

While we stayed at the St Regis on the Corniche we decided to go for a walk as the weather is beautiful this time of the year. The Corniche is basically the waterfront of Abu Dhabi, it has a long stretch on the waterfront, beautifully landscaped with walk ways and bicycle lanes. A few cafes as on the walk which is so beautiful and relaxing. You can even rent scooters and return them to various pick up locations. Definitely try it out.

Jebel Hafeet

Reviewed By RunningRick76 - Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates

I’ve camped and hiked into Jebel Hafit many times and truly enjoy the mountain. It’s the only mountain in the Emirate of Abu Dhabi and one of the highest in the country. The 12 km road has over 60 turns, very well maintained and has many areas to park which also have playgrounds. There is a lookout and restaurant at the very top along with the palace and the 4 star hotel The Mercure is about 3 kilometers from the top. The Mercure Hotel is a great place to spend the night with a great restaurant next to the pool called the Eden Rock with amazing views. At the base of the northern tip is the Green Mubazarah and oasis type green grassy areas with hot spring for both men and women (currently closed due to COVID-19. From the springs I’ve hike into the interior of the mountain following trekking signs and white dots to find my way. Fossils and quartz seams can be found if paying attention. From the east side I’ve stayed at the Jebel Hafit Desert Park at the “bubble tent” camping grounds. From there the desert park has well marked trails that run the length of the mountain, from Oman to the south to the oasis in the north. We have hiked into the mountain from the camping grounds and found large seashell fossils all over the place. We once spotted a large Arabian fox running up the mountain, it was quite the sight! I look forward to returning time and time again!

Al Ain Zoo

Reviewed By MarwanHadhrami - Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates

We have decided to give Al Ain Zoo Safari a chance to try and it definitely was an excellent idea! The ticket grants an entry for the Zoo attractions plus the SUV ride into the Safari experience which take around 45-60 mins. The ticket must be bought in advance through their official website and it will cost AED 1050 for 6 people (who can get into the SUV) and this includes Giraffe feeding which the kids loved the most. The experience was fun and we totally enjoyed the day and it was one to remember.

Sheikh Zayed Palace Museum

Reviewed By confuzzled2 - Al Ain, United Arab Emirates

If you appreciate history and culture, plan in spending 1 to 1½ hours exploring this massive palace in its early years of hunting. It feels like going back into the innocent years when money had no meaning or purpose, when life was simple yet accommodated. My husband and I spent 1-1½ hours exploring each room, absorbing the lifestyle in a desert that became an Oasis because of the late Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan. What you see today in the UAE, began with Sheikh Zayed , a very humble man, the one the Emirates greatly admired and finally call "The father of the UAE." Why? Because of his relationship with each tribe and the respect he earned from their tribal leaders, he united these tribes and with their support formed what is now The United Arab Emirates. He believed in the younger generation spending time with the older ones preserves the memories, he believed in Education for his people. I'm not an Emirate, I'm Polynesian, but I so admire the late Sheikh Zayed!
