It's called Qasr Al Watan, and is open for visitors (for a modest fee of course). An adult ticket costs 60 Dirham. It’s right near the Etihad Towers, one of the symbols of Abu Dhabi. The Emirates Hotel, the Presidential Palace and the Etihad Towers are all pretty close together. We did not go inside. We just saw it from the outside.

Such opulence and grandeur in a working Palace is a rare sight. The palace is only used for state functions,meetings with International Dignitaries and the Abu Dhabi government offices. Some areas are open to the public to enjoy. The colour scheme is gold,creme and pale slate blue.A must visit.

As indicated in a prior review, DO NOT use Kurban Tours or Gray Line for any Dubai tour. It is much better to book

Most of the time spent was at the grand mosque which was the top of our criteria list, so I was pleased about that.
