    Abu Dhabi - Anything I must see?

    I'm in Abu Dhabi for 10 days on business. Anyone been here before?

    I'm hoping to get up to Dubai for a day to check out the tower, but not sure how much free time I'm going to have.

    Just don't get frisky with a lady on the beach.


    Walking on water is easy. Just do it in December when it's frozen.

    Re: Abu Dhabi - Anything I must see?

    Go to the Yas Hotel, which I'm pretty sure is completed. It's a majorrrrrrrrr project and please go at night.

    Abu Dhabi built an F1 racetrack and the turn goes RIGHT BY the hotel. There's a marina there too and i think some other random stuff. At night, the exterior of the hotel itself turns into a light show basically like this

    It's always funny listening to people talk about the mid east because they're always at least half off. Abu Dhabi is actually the richest capital in the world FYI so, yeah..

    It's under construction. You're probably thinking of the one in DUBAI. Dubai is a separate emirate from Abu Dhabi
