Abu Dhabi for holidays

After having spent our last two summer holidays in Dubai plus another time a couple of years ago we are now looking for somewhere different and I am just wondering what Abu Dhabi is like.

On holiday we will spend some time by the pool with some visits to the shopping malls. Waterparks are also good for a visit. For eating out we like to visit local places with the odd viist to an international fast food joint.

How would Abu Dhabi fit into our plans

No water parks.

But there are some high class hotels, good pool, malls and some traditional places as well.

As always there is re-development going on as Abu Dhabi is expanding.

Abu Dhabi is similar to Dubai but no water parks and fewer malls. Some people who love Dubai find Abu Dhabi a bit too quiet. But there is plenty to do, For the sort of holiday you describe it would be ideal. Being on an island the scenery is different and you are never far from the sea. There are very few beach hotels though most have a pool.
