So after the exhausting plane ride and a long nap we finally woke up at around 4:30 pm. After having tea, some snacks and popcorn, we had plans to drive around the main abu dhabi island and visit a few malls. At 5:30 my uncle came from his work, we decided to leave in 30 mins. We left at around 6. So we were driving on the Al Shahma road and took a detour and drove in front of the Grand Sheikh Zayed Mosque and through the Abu Dhabi Adnec Building, Emirates palace. We drove through the Corniche road and reached the end of abu dhabi Island where we got a spectacular view of Abu Dhabi.
Abu Dhabi is so beautiful! Thats all I can say.
After Corniche, we drove to Al Maryah Island and decided to visit The Galleria Mall. So its like a very high end mall. Oh and there was also some Winter Wonderland thingie going on there, that we had to see.
Winter wonderland was amazing. The entire place was decorated beautifully and there were these stalls and activites going on.
After the Galleria, we decided to go to Abu Dhabi Mall and grab some dinner. We went to Zaatar w/ Zeit to have dinner because we were dead hungry. We ordered Fries with Cheese and Hummus w/ crackers as starters.
Then we ordered Zaatar w/ Lebanese wrap, Spicy Chicken wrap, Falafel wrap and one more chicken wrap. The Zaatar w/ Lebanese wrap was an authentic wrap of Abu Dhabi. Basically it had the traditional flavors. So honestly I didn’t really enjoy this one though, because it was a bit sour in taste, maybe a little too much. Other wraps were very delicious though.
So after feeding our bellies we decided to see the christmas tree, which is world’s largest xmas tree here at Abu Dhabi Mall. The tree was so pretty and beautifully decorated.
In fact the entire area around it was really beautiful.
So this all got over at around 9:40’ish and so we decided to drive back home. We all were very tired. After getting back home we decided to wath Pitch Perfect 2 but couldn’t complete because our mothers didn’t allow. So we went to sleep.
Stay tuned for more updates on my Abu Dhabi Diaries.
