20 minutes drive at limited 60 km/hour speed. Drive from Port Zayed to the Presidential Palace. Do it at day and night time. Sunset light creates spectacular views of the Etihad towers.

This is one of the most stunning parts of the capital. A must visit and extremely beautiful and safe. Lovely to ride a bike here or take a stroll and have an ice cream!

This is a favourite place to come for a stroll, particularly in the cooler months. It especially comes to life in the evenings. It would be great if there were a wider variety of restaurants and cafes.

The corniche is a very well maintained area to run or walk slowly and soak up the atmosphere. Is particularly good on an evening.
