Abu Dhabi is the capital of UAE and just as pompous as Dubai. All I had was 1 day to spare on a weekend, so my friend Nish suggested a short hour and a half drive to this beautiful city and it turned out to be the best idea!
The hot summer months are when you would want to stay away from this place, unless you plan to get barbecued in the heat. The blazing temperature once recorded up to 52.1 °C (126 °F) in July will give you an idea of how bad it can get. My trip was in October when the evenings turned out to be hot, yet pleasant. Dubai and Abu Dhabi are a cocktail of modern and middle eastern culture rolled into one. There is plenty of places to see, eat and shop and at least a week’s stay is recommended to take it all in. I will cover the things I did in my next few posts. Stay tuned!
My name is Lovya. I left home when I was 17, to study and pursue my dream of being an Engineer, which I am now! But my love for travel never parted with me and even as I grow older, I know there are places and adventures in the world which I have to see. It feeds my soul in a unique way. This blog is a means for me to share my travel stories and hear about your experiences.
