While Abu Dhabi has an ever increasing number of shopping malls, they are not all (thankfully) as glitzy as those in Dubai. Where Abu Dhabi excels is in still presenting visitors with an insight into Emirati and Arab culture. Don't miss a visit to the Grand Mosque or the Heritage Village. There's also the falcon hospital just outside the city and Yas Marina Circuit shows the modern day interest in motor sports. A beautiful city, still with many green spaces and public beaches to enjoy.

I went to the family beach along the beautiful chroniche road. This beach was very clean with shower cabins and changing rooms and safe guarded with friendly security. The park nearby was also quiet and clean. An excellent place to stay.

Crowds? That is one of the things we liked; no crowds, no pushing and shoving through cramped streets. "Big Bus" is a great way to start.

Good starting-point to visit f.ex. Dubai, the Liwa-Oases, in town: the great mosque (attention: you need a ID-card or driver-license with FOTO if you want to get typical dress to visit a mosque - without this dress you can not enter!), the greek (good public bathing - women in Burka or Bikini - all we have seen there!).

How do they keep Abu Dhabi so clean?

Anonymous, Unknown location

12 hours ago Report

The city is primarily kept clean by hundreds of employees, mainly from the Indian sub continent, who are employed simply to sweep the streets and pick up litter. They work long hours throughout the year - imagine being out in the sun all day in the summer with temperatures of 45/50 degrees. You can show them your appreciation with a small tip or even a can of soda.
