Abu Dhabi and the Rest?

Jump to last reply

Have, as suggested by others, re-posted this here.

The Situation:

Arriving on a cruise from Singapore which will have called at Muscat and Dubai prior. I am getting the definite impression from reading archived posts, etc., that there isn't a lot to see in Abu Dhabi and that the majority of architecture, etc., in the Emirates is "new."

We are not interested in visiting any "shopping malls" and due to the length of our travels (more than three weeks with the cruise and a week in Japan prior) we are considering simply returning home to the US. The departure times for non-stops look like fun.

Perhaps simply staying in an Abu Dhabi hotel for a night or so.

I wish we could extend the trip to include Egypt but could not do that justice I suspect.

If I'm missing something, or a LOT of "something" appreciate any comments and thank you.
