Abu Dhabi, the capital city of the United Arab Emirates, has been my home for the last 8 months. It was here that I fell into a heady and passionate love… with the culture, food, people and landscapes.
Its safe to say that I love this city.
When people hear that I live in Abu Dhabi, they always ask-
“Don’t you wish you lived in Dubai?”
“Isn’t that where everything is anyway?”
“What is there to look at in Abu Dhabi?”
Well shall we take a look?
These mediocre sunrises over the Arabian Sea
Followed by average sunset views…
This iconic mosque which fails to impress at all times of day…
There aren’t even any decent sea views!
Certainly no good beaches!
There’s definitely no greenery…
And nothing other than desert and buildings…
Oh you thought all the skyscrapers were only in Dubai? These can’t be real then…
Who photoshopped these into our city skyline?
Speaking of skylines… its clear that Abu Dhabi doesn’t have an impressive one…
I wish we had some impressive architecture…
Even the desert isn’t pretty…
All sarcasm aside, Abu Dhabi is not just the richest emirate because of oil reserves or financial wealth. Abu Dhabi is the largest emirate in the UAE rich in diverse landscapes- there are dense forests as you kayak along the mangroves, vast deserts where people live and farm, the Arabian Sea where people frolic and of course the busy capital city full of people hailing from all over the world. Come visit us here in Abu Dhabi to enjoy negotiating the well-developed roads, enjoy the breathtaking coast and smoke shisha with locals and expats alike.
Be sure to ask us what we love about living in this gorgeous emirate… not only will we tell you, we will also try our best to show you!
Let me know if I have managed to convince you to come visit Abu Dhabi in the comments below!
Oh yeah, I’m a 101% convinced. Loved the use of sarcasm btw. 😂😂
Thanks for the love and appreciation! So when are you booking your ticket?! 😀
Unfortunately, I just planned a summer trek! 😂😂
You have really crazy photography skills missy 😍😍😍
Thank youuuuuu Jade!
Well, with all you’ve shown in your beautiful pictures, can’t see why anyone would want to visit! Ha Ha..
Haha love your sassy response! Hopefully I will see you here one day 😀
Nobody could fail to be stunned at the beauty of the mosque. Abu Dhabi is sooo expensive though. Had a 19 hour layover and had to go back to the airport early as I thought I was going to run out of money. Spent a small fortune on taxis. Found the falcon hospital to be pretty interesting too x
Oooh I totally agree- Abu Dhabi is not for the cheap traveler however its MUCH cheaper to rent a car than take taxis here. I need to visit the falcon hospital 🙂
