Abu Dhabi airport

Abu Dhabi airport, Abu Dhabi, UAE

November 2012

We had the opportunity to be in the transit hall of Abu Dhabi airport as we had to change plane for our onward flight to Casablanca via Etihad from Kuala Lumpur. One most noticeable design of this airport is the unique ‘funnel’ like structure in the middle of the transit hall. On this level and the level below, there are stores for you to shop duty-free. The transit hall is rather small and finding a seat is a challenge.

City Seasons Al Hamra Hotel, Abu Dhabi, UAE

November 2012

For our stay in Abu Dhabi, we have booked City Seasons Al Hamra Hotel, via Agoda. The hotel is located at the junction of Najdah and Electra street. Close by to Abu Dhabi mall but I wouldn’t want to walk in the hot sun. Check-in was swift and we were attended by courteous and friendly desk staff. The room was the cheapest but the amenities was fantastic. Powerful and stable wi-fi and daily newspapers were complimentary. I would rate ★★★★½ stars for this hotel. Truly enjoyed.

We were in Abu Dhabi for a short 1½ day stay and went around town in a rented vehicle and taxi. From the vehicle, we recorded some scenes of modern downtown Abu Dhabi.
