Day 3, Part 2: Abu Dhabi Day 1

After arriving to Dubai International Airport, I took a taxi ride to Abu Dhabi, the capital city of United Arab Emirates.

After 2 hour 20 min of taxi ride (there was a traffic at the highway close to Abu Dhabi, so it took longer than the time mentioned in travel info), I arrived the hotel that I will spend the first night of this trip.

HYATT Capital Gate Abu Dhabi, the reason why I chose this hotel is because this building is certified as “The World Furthest Learning Manmade Tower,” by Guinness World Records.

When I arrived at the hotel, it was at 10 AM and official check in time was 3 PM, however the receptionist told me that I could check in. So then, I did early check in since I was tired from two nights of flights.

So many of you may think “Why Abu Dhabi?, Whu not Dhubai?” I have reason why I decide to visit Abu Dhabi, instead of spending time in Dubai longer.

There are some interesting things in Abu Dhabi that I really wanted to see, such as Grand Mosque, Emirates Palace Hotel, and Ferrari World.

 

So I decided to go to Ferrari World Abu Dhabi, as a start of my discovery in Abu Dhabi.

Later on the day, I went to Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque, one of the landmark of Abu Dhabi.

It was one of the most beautiful building I’ve ever seen in my life and it impressed me so much. I enjoyed Abu Dhabi so much and after I get to hotel, I ate dinner (I didn’t take any picture in restaurant, sine the lighting was very dark in the restaurant) and slept after I had very long day.

 

Thank you for reading and have a nice day!
