Abu Dhabi Sight Seeing Day Tour

Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque
About a year ago, I had a post about Abu Dhabi where I narrated that anyone can visit the place on a budget. Although I have never been to Abu Dhabi that time, I decided to share the post to show experiences of friends who have been there and to earn few bucks, (ok, that was a paid post haha), with the hope of going to Abu Dhabi someday.

But lo and behold, as Coelho once quoted, "when you want something, all the universe conspires in helping you to achieve it." Yes, achieve is what I did when I find myself doing a sight-seeing tour on the many attractions of Abu Dhabi. 

The Huge and Beautiful Chandelier
Abu Dhabi is the opulent capital and the largest of the seven emirates of United Arab Emirates. It houses the federal government offices, is the seat of the UAE Government snd home to the Emiri Family and the President of UAE. It's rapid development and urbanization has transformed the city into a large and advance metropolis.

The Landmark
Abu Dhabi is considered a sky scraper center due to some of its structural wonders.There's Etihad Towers, The Landmark, Sky Tower, Capital Gate, Capital Plaza and Silver Tower to name a few. These imposing sky scrapers, with their individual character but formed together, collectively make a worthy attraction to see.

One of the main attractions of Abu Dhabi is the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque, the hub of worship for the country and a scene of much prayer and spirituality. A tour to this place is the highlight of any trip to Abu Dhabi. I gather that this is the final resting place of the first president of the UAE. More than three thousand workers took part in its construction and much of its interiors is made from natural materials like marble, stone, gold, crystals and ceramics. It is one of the most revered monuments of Islam, and is the third largest mosque in the world.

Other than the Grand Mosque, you will also have that Mediterranean feel when you visit their Heritage Museum, Al Jahili Fort and a glimpse of Emirates Palace, even from afar.

But one of the places I enjoyed the most was the Ferrari World. The park was created in tribute to Ferrari's passion, heritage, excellence, innovation and performance. Each area and attraction in the park brings life to different part of the Ferrari story of speed, power and freedom.
