A Complete Guide to Abu Dhabi!

Full guide is available on We Are Travel Girls website – search under ‘Abu Dhabi’

Abu Dhabi is the capital of the United Arab Emirates (UAE) but the city often gets overshadowed by it’s much larger and glitzier neighbour Dubai just 1 hour down the road. Abu Dhabi, however, is a great place to spend a few days as it can often be much cheaper than Dubai, plus there are more and more tourist attractions opening all the time! It is also a very safe city, and whilst Arabic is the official language, English is spoken widely as there is a very large expat community. I spent almost 4 years living in Abu Dhabi so let me share with you my favourite tourist attractions, restaurants, and hotels in the complete guide to Abu Dhabi!
