    If you go to a big Mall crowded with bustling people hit by someone, this is Chanel, Hermes, except where the rest of the brand is you! Some people didn't have much more leisurely shopping and staff care or leave it there! Hassle-free shopping, eating and recommend it to people who want it.

    Excellent food choices and a great shisha location. It has a wonderful view of Abu Dhabi from Maya Island. Some upper end stores and a good barber shop.

Where to stay in Abu Dhabi

One of the most expensive cities in the world, Abu Dhabi is famous for providing an unparalleled level of luxury. The modern development of Yas Island offers some of the priciest options in the city. Abu Dhabi doesn't really do hostels, but you can find some less expensive hotels in side streets less frequented by foreign visitors. Head away from the sea to find lower rates, or consider the areas south and east of the airport for simple rooms with basic amenities.
