  • Our tour guide brought us here instead of the much more interesting Emirates Palace which I really wanted to see. No fee or security at entrance. Didn't bother with any museums because all of them were underwhelming and boring. Got to take a picture with and touch a real camel though! Amazing view of the Abu Dhabi Corniche as well. Lots of lovely gardens and palm trees to sit under to enjoy the shade. If you're at the Marina Mall you might as well check it out, but otherwise it's not worth your time.
