• UAE APRIL 2011 PART 2

    Second part of my UAE trip was in Abu Dhabi! From Dubai, we took a bus to Abu Dhabi which took about an hour and a half.

    Sheikh Zayed Mosque Abu Dhabi:

    This is the largest mosque in the United Arab Emirates. It's also the eighth largest mosque in the world. It is such a huge structure covered in gleaming white marble! You can enter the mosque as a tourist. But women have to wear an Abaya. You can rent one for free inside the mosque.


    The mosque has seven chandeliers imported from Germany that incorporate millions of Swarovski crystals. The largest chandelier in the mosque is the third largest in the world. 


    The interior design of the mosque is just as beautiful as the outside. The columns and domes are decorated with 24 karat gold. 

                       

    Below is a photo of an Adhan. It's a prayer clock the Muslims use. They have ten of those in the mosque. It shows them the different prayer times. 


    Heritage Village:

    Heritage Village is a living exhibition of Bedouin and other cultures. It's sort of like a museum. There's a beautiful garden to stroll around in. There are a lot of typical UAE souvenirs for sale. There's henna painting, camel riding and some of the little craft shops are also worth a look.


         
       
    My next stop is definitely something the car fanatics would love...

    Ferrari World:

    Ferrari World is the largest indoor amusement park. They have about 20 rides. I was too scared to ride the Formula Rossa. After all, it is the world's fastest roller coaster. I rode the Fiorano GT Challenge instead since it was less scary. Hahaha.
