"Sights we saw were so wonderful!"

Trip was great and we enjoyed the whole day. The sights we saw were wonderful and we learned a lot of interesting facts about the city. Had a very special experience at the Sheikh zayed mosque. I have never seen a structure as fascinating as this. I have visited a lot of churches and temples, but this is the first time visiting mosque. Had a nice time inside the mosque with unforgettable memories. I wish I could have some more time there. Corniche beach was nice and sand was too soft. One thing worth mentioning is its cleanliness. I enjoyed the pleasant breeze there. At the time we travelled, the place was not so crowded. We could glance emirates palace, presidential palace, too far away, and etihad towers. Those landmarks were the perfect background for our selfies. We had a chance to visit the heritage village. So glad we saw traditional way of Arab life at this place. Though I was not a history buff, I loved it very much. Enjoyed being there. Halted at Yas Island too. That was quite unique spot for us to enjoy clicking. We filled our camera with plenty of pictures from there. Best time ever!

"This was my first visit to outside my country"

This was my first visit to outside my country, in fact, the first visit to the Arab world. so I was excited to explore a new region. I got a lovely sightseeing experience. I could visit the peaceful sheikh zayed mosque. Blissful surroundings, brilliant architecture, handmade carpet, chandeliers really captured my attention. I feel so lucky as I got to experience the very best of the mosque. Visiting beaches was something I always wanted to do. so I was thrilled to go to Corniche beach. I enjoyed observing sights like Etihad towers, emirates palace, the presidential palace. What I really liked was heritage village visit. Exhibits were fantastic. I liked every minute I spent there.

"A way of realizing Abu Dhabi!!"

As a businessman, Abu Dhabi is always a fascinating world and I visited here many times but this time visit is actually an evergreen trip for me. This is happened because of my wife, she insisted to do this. All my perceptions about Abu Dhabi is that it is highly noticed for business activities but that was entirely wrong. So many locations are here to keep us alive and entertaining and this full day visit taught me how strong Abu Dhabi in its creative culture. Grand Mosque is enough to understand all about its creative culture and religious tolerance. Its floor to ceiling has to say so many stories related to human creativity and efforts. Abu Dhabi Corniche is a totally different landmark and really a feast to our eyes. Excellent days at Dubai with my better half.
