Abu Dhabi is in contrast to its neighbour Dubai still earning much of its revenue from the oil business but has in recent years like Dubai begun to turn its attention more to tourism. I took a bus from Dubai to see if there is a comparison to be made between these two rival cities on the Arabian Gulf & found that in contrast to Dubai’s very liberal way of life by Arabian standards that Abu Dhabi still holds some traditional values & hasn’t sold its soul to commercialism just yet.

As the oil reserves disappear though I am certain that Abu Dhabi will join Dubai in becoming another ultra modern city luring the package deal tourists worldwide to its luxury hotels, warm weather, fine sandy beaches & numerous sporting activities & events throughout the year, catering especially for us Europeans wanting to escape the cold, wet winter just like myself.
