    • Abu Dhabi Airport to Center town Transport.

      by Greydudes Online Now Dec 9, 2016 at 2:13 PM

      We are looking for an advice on the cost effective transportation from Abu Dhabi Airport to center town short of taking a taxicab. We would be out of Airport at around 9:30 PM and have minimal luggage ( a small cabin size drag bag.) Since we are there for only for a night. A city bus would be fine as long as it is safe. Any suggestion would be highly appreciated. Thanks a lot.

    • Dubai - Mumbai - AbuDhabi

      by Greydudes Online Now Dec 3, 2016 at 10:52 AM

      We have a return ticket from Toronto to Abu Dhabi. We plan to land in A.D. stay there for a couple of days and then go to Dubai. Stay in Dubai for few days. The plan is to buy a Dubai -Mumbai - Dubai ticket on Etihad Airline. to stay in India for six weeks. Etihad flights normally carry passengers from Dubai to A.D. and A.D. to Dubai by bus and have the Airline between A.D. and Mumbai.

      While we would have tickets to go all the way to Dubai when coming back from India, we hope to get off at A.D. and not go any further to Dubai by Bus. Does anyone see any problem in doing so. We would appreciate any input. Thanks.

    • Public Showers

      by jules2016 Online Now Mar 27, 2016 at 4:51 PM

      My husband and I are travelling to Europe in May with a layover in Abu Dhabi. We will be flying into T3 and out of T1A for our flight on the way (6am to 9am layover) and then flying in and out of T3 (8pm to 10pm).

      I think the public shower facilities are in T1. Does anyone know if these are clean and free? Will they be busy at our times in the airport as I've heard the airport can be extemely busy. Are there any airport lounges in T3 that we can pay to use? I can only see there are lounges in T1 and 2 for guest access. Is it worth paying $65 AUD for each person to gain access to the lounges?

      Any help or suggestions would be much appreciated!

      Do any of you have any suggestions as to what can be done?
      I was wondering if v could hire one of those luggage trailers to attach to the car & put our luggage in that Ref pic attached...Any idea where we can hire one for cheap?

    • Abu Dhabi visa on arrival

      by Jkarry Online Now Oct 21, 2015 at 8:02 AM

      Can please somebody clarify, if process of getting visa on arrival for USA citizens for about 12 hours layover is easier, if not flying with Etihad. Looks like Etihad has to be contacted, and pictures are needed, while flying with India air or Egypt air requires not actions prior to arrival. Am I right?

      Also, are the private tours safe?

      Any info would be greatly appreciated.

    • Staying in Abu Dhabi as a young couple

      My boyfriend and I are planning on visiting Abu Dhabi and Dubai at the end of February. His uncle lives there and we are going to visit him and his girlfriend. However I am not quite familiar with how couples should behave when visiting. I read that showing affection in public is not the best idea, and I also read that unmarried couples shouldn't sleep in the same hotel room. So I am wondering if you have any advices about how couples (we are students) should behave and if it's a problem if we stay at their place. I hope not. Thank you in advance! :)
