5 Must Have Glamorous Experiences in Abu Dhabi
Winter Getaway Meets Desert Glam
It’s been years since my first visit to the UAE. When my good friend received the opportunity to move to Abu Dhabi, I was delighted! I normally do not rate airlines but let me say Emirates Airlines is the way to go! They offer both business and a luxury first class unparalleled to most airlines. For travelers in all classes comfort and detail are not overlooked. Having flown with a multitude of airlines I have to say all details from the blankets, pillows, movies and best of all food were impeccable!
SHEIK ZAYED MOSQUE
The First stop on my trip was the marveled Sheik Zayed Mosque. This architectural superstar is the pride of Abu Dhabi. It’s pristine all white alabaster-like design is an architectural fantasy realized. Regality meets sacredness is its best description. I recommend both the daytime and evening (sunset) tours!
DRINK 24-KARAT GOLD!
From gold facials to gold face masks gold has become quite the beauty phenomenon. How about drinking gold? You can do just that by experience an afternoon of Royal Tea at Emirates Palace. Not only is the experience but you get a 2-for-1 as royal tea takes place in the former home of Sheik Zayed Mohammed, Emirates Palace. Indulge in tea and walk around the regal palace.
JEWELS FROM THE DESERT
Souvenirs: Time spent abroad is often remembered by pictures and souvenirs. For my fellow tea lovers + girls who love pretty things, check out these gorgeous finds. When visiting Dubai or Abu Dhabi grab these gems at any local mall or bazaar.

This is not your typical local grocery brand of meat. Freshness and tenderness make for a mouthwatering experience. Unique to Happy Yemen, is its option of traditional Arabic dining.
