    • Purchase of NOL Silver Card with 7 day pass

      Dubai Sep 29, 2016 at 12:34 AM

      All information of the Nol Card states that the Silver Card costs AED 25 which includes an initial e-purse value of AED 19. One 7 days pass for all zones costs AED 110. How does this work? Lets say you have purchased a Silver Card by paying AED 25, you now have a balance of AED 19 loaded on to it. Do you now pay AED 110 - AED 19 (AED 91) additional to get the 7 days pass? Or is there a direct purchase of both the Silver Card and the 7 days pass? Be grateful if someone can clarify. Thanks in Advance.

      Tickets to observation Burj Kalifa?

      When I try to book at the official site, it only allows for one month ahead. Since we will be leaving on a cruise, and I assume it is cheaper to buy online, are other sites such as '' reliable? anyone had experience? Viator charges $$ more for the same ticket, so not using them.

    • 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!

      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?

      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! :)

      by MCLF Online Now Nov 6, 2013 at 9:11 AM

      I have a long transit in Abu Dhabi. I arrive at 1AM and my flight leaves the same day at 10PM on route to Sydney. I'd like to stay in a nice hotel where I can relax, use the pool, maybe go to one of the private beaches, maybe venture out to a restaurant. I realise it's not particularly cultural of me but I really just want to relax before the long flight so not too fussed about seeing the sights. I've emailed a few hotels but they all seem intent on charging me for two nights accommodation because I'll be checking in late.

      Can anyone recommend one where I can check out in the afternoon but still use some of the hotel facilities until I have to go back to the airport.

      Thanks so much!
