16 of the Best #OnlyInAbuDhabi Moments
As the Capital of the UAE, it's only right to expect the highest of standards while living in Abu Dhabi.

But between all of the glitz and glam of gold plated cars and gold sprinkles on food and drinks, there's actually some unusual circumstances and things you may never have witnessed elsewhere in the world... Until you moved to Abu Dhabi.
