I always love art and architecture. So when my friend told me he is going to Abu Dhabi, if I wish I could join with him. I didn’t take a second to reply yes. Visited Louvre Museum. It is a great place for art and culture. Better I like to call it as a hub of art and culture. The ambiance was too good. Truly this is an excellent place for spending quality time. Grand Mosque is an ideal place to be sitting in peace with family or even oneself. The whole structure is stunning from far away. Don’t forget to shoot some beautiful pictures. Go there and enjoy its beauty.

If you get a chance to visit Abu Dhabi don't miss Louvre museum and Sheikh zayed mosque, the two mysterious landscape and incredible attractions of the world. Absolutely it's a Well worthy, entertaining and informative trip for my family. The treatment of both internal and external structure of both are highly appreciable. Louvre museum is wide enough to have great knowledge for researchers and students and it is evident from my son's expressions, he is a research student. The shining of the domes of the grand mosque is even evident from the pictures I had taken. I can definitely say that it's a must do a thing.

It is going to be difficult for me to write how much I love the city in simple words. Wonderful culture and nice tradition made this land feel like a home away from home. I visited two districted attractions if the city. I loved Louvre museum visit. One of the things that are very interesting is impressive architecture of museum. This is filled with the amazing art works that I liked. Grand mosque was truly stunning in every way! Before I went to this mosque, I have googled it. I also searched on Facebook and twitter. I watched video clips too. So I know what to expect there. Even though, I was little excited. We all are treated with respect. I want to say thanks to our tour guide.
