As you enter the "PALMS" and come out from the under water tunnel, be sure to have your camera ready to snap snap snap!! The Palms is like the esplinade of Abu Dhabi along the beach side.
The Birj is the tallest building, and the lights at night are lit up bright with amazing lighting! be sure to capture this!!!
To get pics of animals, the outskirts of most of the cities have wild camels and donkeys in giant numbers feeding on patches of weeds in desert. It's a cool image to see.
Be sure to see the rotating restaurant located int he middle of the Abu Dhabi mall, the locals call it "the top of the world" one half is fine dining and the other half is cafes the views are of the ocean and the desert and the city its just breath taking!
