Hey! I know you guys have been waiting for this for so long!! Sorry ! I really didn’t have time. Well, but here you go! Let’s start this trip!  Actually, there were around 4 Stops within my one day Rush City tour.This trip is powered by TripAdvisor.

Before we getting to the point, let know a little bit about Abu Dhabi ? Yes?

So...Abu Dhabi is the capital and the second most populous city of the United Arab Emirates (the most populous being Dubai), and also capital of the Emirate of Abu Dhabi, the largest of the UAE's seven emirates. Abu Dhabi city is situated on an island off the Persian Gulf from the central western coast, while the majority of the city and Emirate reside on the mainland connected to the rest of the country.

The Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque is located in Abu Dhabi, the capital city of the United Arab Emirates. The largest mosque in the country, it is the key place of worship for daily prayers, Friday gathering and Eid prayers. During Eid, it may be visited by more than 41,000 people.(Wiki)

 

Heritage Village in Abu Dhabi is a model of an Emirati village which exhibits the Bedouin lifestyle and heritage. This venue is an interesting cultural attraction  and a place which can be one of the most family friendly destinations. There are no entry fees and is open to all guests.

The place has innumerable attractions like the Bedouin tents set up with campfires, and piping hot Arabic tea.  The camels, Arabian horses and goats are put on a display, this can be a pleasing sight to the kids in the family! The heritage village also hosts several artisan exhibits of the local arts like weaving or glass blowing.

 Herein you can also enjoy shopping in a traditional market which sells a variety of products like handmade soap, silver jewellery and traditional clothing. Also, some stalls offer the traditional henna or mehndi with a perfect Arabic blend.
