Any trip to Dubai would not be complete without a visit to Abu Dhabi. Abu Dhabi is the second largest city in the UAE and is an island in the Persian Gulf. After our New Year’s celebration we took a day trip to Abu Dhabi to see some of the interesting architecture of the city.
The Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque is a must see during a visit to the area. The design and construction unites the world, using artisans and materials from many countries including Italy, Germany, Morocco, Pakistan, India, Turkey, Iran, China, the United Kingdom, New Zealand, Greece and the United Arab Emirates. As you walk through the massive complex you see opulent chandeliers and architectural details all throughout the complex. At the end of our visit as the sun set the mosque lit up like a dream against the purple sky.
