Abu Dhabi Big Bus Tour

ready to go
 Yesterday Kelly and I took a Big Bus Tour around Abu Dhabi from 11am til nearly 4pm. We enjoyed the chance to see more of the city and to take lots of photos.We got out at Abu Dhabi Mall, nice but more modest than Dubai. I enjoyed the Villeroy and Boch store with 30% off. Our stop at the Iranian Market was a let down...full of trash and not much to see. We weren't allowed to take photos as it's a working port. It was a long wait for the next bus from there. We finished with coffee and cake at the Sky Tower, very high above the Marina Mall.

Emirates Palace Hotel

The Corniche, a walk and family area along the beach...goes for kms.

the malls have all the familiar brands

they are keen on having the more unusual structure in this part of the world
