Useful tips:  Since the climate is hot during June - September, residents or visitors are advised to take 3 litres of water every day. This is the safest city I had ever seen, even at midnight one can go for walk or take money from ATM. Since multi culture is centred here, Arabs here are so nice and hospitality to welcome others. The rich Arabic Culture makes one feel at home. I had been living here for the last 20 years and I love this place and rulers. The infra-structure is very effective and update. One can have liquor permit if wants to have alcohol. But driving with alcohol drinking is not ... More allowed. There are many bars with proper licence are running their business here. WE get different types of food here, Indian, Inter-continental, Asian, European and of course authentic Arabic food. Non-UAE citizens are not allowed to wear the dress which belongs to UAE citizens only. The police here are nice and very straight forwarded. No bribes and the way they act in swift makes one surprise of their efficiency. I am only disgusted with people who come into this country for earning and do not adhere modest dress, even though the authorities do not mind it, I feel it is our responsibility to respect their culture and being one with them.

Getting Around: We hired a taxi and asked the driver to take us around. Given the large distances between the various places to visit this is most convenient and commonly used way to get around as there is no public transport and the cost of taxis is not very high.

Packing List: I visited Abu Dhabi in May, I put short dresses, shorts, swimsuites in my suitcase. Temperatures are hot in the day, more than 40-42 degrees but that's okay. It was a wonderful holiday, with sea and sun and so much fun.

Not to miss: Abu Dhabi is a great place to come on holiday, transport is cheap and there are many attractions for tourists. Yas Island is a great place to go as there is a waterpark, theme park (with the fastest roller coaster in the world). The Cornishe is a great place for evening walks when it gets cooler.

General opinion: It is enjoyable and you fell you are a human being. Safe and sound specially, in the evening you can go around without fear. This is the only place that you fell free. Food is excellent and cheap if you earn AED. I would like to comeback and spend a vacation every time I will travel. I can't find a place like Abu Dhabi.

General opinion:  The first impression is that of tranquility. Vibrant but low in din & bustle, very modern but not heartless, approachable but not granted. Mosques all around Abu Dhabi poses as the sentinel as well as attestation to Islamic heritage. What would strike sublimely beautiful is the blend of all nationalities, cultures, languages even dresses. Architectural beautification have started catching the eyes of appreciation. Renovated cornice around water front is a continuous source of beauty as well as peaceful walk for pedestrians. Malls are of international standard. Some surpass the grandeur of any international ... More landmark. With a minimum fund of 100 Dh one could enjoy 1st class shopping experience.

Best Period to Go: Winter time is amazing to stay in Abu Dhabi, you will not be able to go back home and leave enjoyment. Very safe place. You will never be worried from anything. Quite expensive and make sure that you have your credit card with you always as there are many expensive stuff that you will like to buy. It is a lovely place to go to even for short a period.

General opinion: It's kind of a beautiful city. Concerning security and other problems is better than other areas. This will be my first visit to Abu Dhabi so after visiting it will be much more helpfull to give you the accurate information of this city. It's comparatively hot but i still have to taste the cuisine and meet thenationals and their attitudes.

General opinion: Amazing! Best place in the world. Very safe and no problems! Thank you Sheikh Zayed for making Abu Dhabi capital! Only thing is that things have become a little expensive and jobs are kind of hard to find nowadays young are likely to get jobs soon! Heat is the only problem but the A/Cs solve this problem!

General opinion: Abu Dhabi is a very safe place. Modern infrastructure. You have a variety of choices for accommodation that suits all budgets. Business environment is healthy, you can make good money with honesty and hard work. Shopping leisure is not yet at optimum but Otis gradually improving. A good place for a family. Plenty of sports activities including sailing to natural islands, formula 1, golf tournaments, horse racing, camel racing, and many others..

General opinion: Greta place to stay and lead a perfect family life. Extremely metropolitian city with people from over 200 countries. Speaking from an Indian perspective - you have lot of Indians around you - you also have a lot of Indian restaurants (even for vegetarians and Jains). If you plan to shift here - having a salary of about 7K-10K per person (1 earning + 1 dependable) should help you lead a good life.

General opinion: THE HELPFUL PEOPLE OF ABU DHABI On Friday night of last week I managed to lose my mobile phone, after a day of worry a friend introduced me to a gentleman called Khalid Alomaira unknown to me he was from the CID. Khalid was very understanding and amazingly helpful, after asking me a few questions he made a brief phone call. Khalid then told me my phone would be returned within 15 minutes.15 minutes later as promised my phone and I were reunited.Foreign nationals both visitors and ex pats are treated with the greatest respect and helpfullness in Abu Dhabi
