Dubai & Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates

I have visited Dubai and Abu Dhabi in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) 3 times - June 2022, March 2023, and November 2023. On my last trip, I stayed at the Days Hotel By Wyndham Dubai Deira which was above the Gold Souq Metro Sation in the Deira area of Dubai. During my visit to Abu Dhabi I stayed at the City Seasons Al Hamra Hotel located in Downtown Abu Dhabi.

Dubai is a very modern city with a very good Metro system and lots of attractions to visit such as the Burj Khalifa, Dubai Mall, Dubai Gold Souk, Al Mamzar Beach Park, Miracle Garden, Dubai Creek, Global Village, Kite Beach, and Jumeirah Beach. To get around I mostly rode the Metro system and took a taxi.

Abu Dhabi is the capital city of the United Arab Emirates and is a 90-minute taxi ride from Dubai. There are plenty of attractions in Abu Dhabi such as the Emirates Palace, Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque, The National Aquarium, Umm Al Emarat Park, Louvre Abu Dhabi, Corniche Beach, Abu Dhabi Mall, Marina Mall, Al Wahda Mall. To get around Abu Dhabi I mostly took the public bus and taxi.
