If you can, get a cab to the newly opened Jubail Mangrove Park on Jubail Island (it’s a network of boardwalks over mangroves). There’s a little pizza place and lovely coffee shop there to sit and relax with a drink after walking the boardwalk.

Dubai is great but I think Abu Dhabi is a gem in it’s own right and if anything very peaceful and not too busy and plenty to see and do. A bit like a cultural hub with so much to do and see.
