Name Of The Place (Post#22) : Abu Dhabi
Abu Dhabi is the capital emirates of United Arab Emirates or UAE. I was here only for one day but it was a worth visit. This boat post with the name of the city can be found at the front of Marina Mall in Al Marina near the parking area. UAE is divided by seven emirates, each emirates represent a kingdom. If there is a kingdom there is a king and that’s what UAE has. Since UAE is the capital emirates or capital city of the country, their kingdom represents the President of the country and while Dubai emirates represents the Prime Minister and from what I learned it is always that way (please don’t quote me on that). The significant place I visited in this city is “Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque”. Photo snapshot captured last August 2014.
View At My Window (Post#19) : Abu Dhabi (Heritage Village, Theatre), Corniche Beach and CBD
When I got a chance to visit United Arab Emirates (UAE) when I attended a work related training, I tried my best to see other place aside from Dubai. Through my college friend who currently working in Dubai suggested to visit Abu Dhabi which is the capital city of UAE. Since the season is summer we cannot really stayed outside of the city and most of the time we wanted in a place where there is air-condition to feel more comfortable because of the summer heat. We went to Marina Tower and we dined to one of the café at the top of it to get a chance to see the city from top in a more comfortable way. The snapshot above with the UAE flag at the right side is where the Heritage Village and the Theatre is the dome building at the left side. The white beach at the top is the Corniche Beach and the Skyscraper at the background is the city’s CBD. Photo captured last August 2014.
