For anyone visiting Abu Dhabi, in my view this is the No.1 place to be visited. I have visited more than 5 times over a number of years and each time, I discover something new. Just amazing!

Everyone must go.. it’s beautiful. There is an audio guide you can get which we didn’t bother with.. if we get the chance to go again I would invest as there wasn’t much information around to find out more about the history of the mosque.

Taxi is the easiest way to travel within the city. The fare starts from AED10. And there's GPS on each taxi. I don't try other ways to travel in Abu Dhabi.
