Holiday Photos “City Style”

I see it approaching… the much awaited deeply desired… LONG WEEKEND!!  Yipeeee!!     (sourced: quoteshunger.com)

That is the good thing living in the Middle East particularly in UAE as we have so many different EID holidays and it adds up, can last up to a week!

Abu Dhabi is only less than 2 hours drive by car.  Lots of people think that Dubai is the Capital of UAE but sorry it is actually Abu Dhabi, a much quieter and so-called “Garden City” as you will forget this is a desert country!  Unlike in Dubai, it is more of shining towers and night-life and crowds.  Both Dubai and Abu Dhabi have their own beautiful resorts too, as they boast both deserts and nice beaches mind you! Incredible isn’t it?  You may think it is all a desert but nope you are mistaken.

If you want to stroll around (preferably at night in summer but it is now Spring so all good not too hot) better have your sandals/jandals or comfy shoes with you as it can be a long walk.  It is easy to get lost in what you see and find something you like that you forget the time or even get lost.

And finally after 2 days of action it is time for us to relax and go home.

There are still a lot of road works everywhere.  Demands vs Supply.

  2. I always thought that Dubai was the capital of UAE. 😜
    My husband has been to UAE. He said Abu Dhabi is a little behind than Dubai. That’s probably why I thought Dubai was the capital. Lol!

    • It is the same with siblings… there is one that is showy and one that is humble. Abu Dhabi is humble but much richer, clever (as they learned from Dubai’s mistake) and vibrant too! (You just have to know where to look). Pls check my blog “Abu Dhabi -My Kind of City”. I prefer AD than Dubai and I have tested both. 🙂

    • Yap especially Ramadan and EID’s so many days! 🙂 Locals is just like anybody in the World… some good some not and some aloof but they are fine as far as I am concern. Pretty safe here compare to other rich countries or Western Countries. FYI. 😉
