A day spent in Abu Dhabi

Today on our blog I will be talking about less explored but a must visit Abu Dhabi. We all know Abu Dhabi is the capital and the second most popular city of the United Arab Emirates (UAE), the most popular being Dubai. 

Abu Dhabi is 139.2km driving from Dubai, that comes somewhere between 1hour 35minutes. 

One should visit Abu Dhabi if you are in Dubai. As it won’t take much travelling time, plus you can cover the must-visit places in a day.  

It was 2nd Dec 2017, when I and my husband planned our ever first trip to Dubai. It was a week trip, and we kept a day for Abu Dhabi. We hired a cab and started our 1 hr 25mnt journey to the second most popular city of UAE. 

The areas we covered are: 

1. Ferrari World

The most popular amusement park as per my belief. It’s located on Yas Island, Abu Dhabi, UAE. The making of the park started in 2007 and after three years it opened for the public in 2010.

Not just popular but also the first Ferrari theme-based amusement park which has the largest frame structure ever built record.
