I am visiting from USA. Although my visit was limited to Dubai, I carved a day out to Abu Dhabi. My first stop was to see Grand Mosque, the word grandeur is limiting it's beauty. It was simply astonishing and peaceful. My next visit to Emirates palace was quite the opposite, it left a bitter taste to my trip. The security guy did not let me enter the palace because I had shorts on. I went to shopping and bought pants and came exactly around 5pm. The security guy again did not let me in, was insolent and did not have common decency to answer my question on timings, while others cars were let in including taxis behind me. He bullied and shoed me away from entrance. It just reflects the country is very discriminative and not ready to take tourism with open arms. My whole family is hurt with incident will think twice before we step on the soil.
