I am constantly mesmerized by the vast variety of architectural styles present in this world - most of these statues, structures and buildings were created far before cranes, planes or trains. The Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque on the other hand is not as historical as it was completed in 2007. Regardless, it embodies more culture than one could deem imaginable.

Let's face it. Plush pillows, stand alone bathtubs & floor to ceiling windows overlooking the Emirates Palace is the ideal location for a hotel - especially when you wake up on the 50th floor overlooking downtown Abu Dhabi. I spent a week in Abu Dhabi and was lucky enough to have a week-long sleepover at the Jumeriah Hotel at Etihad Towers. Centrally located, contemporarily designed (parallel to Emirates style - marble details at every whim) this hotel was one for the books.
