5.0 out of 5 stars Abu Dhabi in your pocket! 24 July 2013
By Pepper #1 HALL OF FAME TOP 10 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I recent visited Abu Dhabi and found this DK guide very useful. However, these DK Top 10 Guides must be seen in context - they are well presented brief pocket guides to key attractions rather than full guidebooks. As the title implies the book highlights the Top 10 attractions in a number of categories including museums, shopping etc. as well as things to avoid! Additionally, the guide identifies and maps Abu Dhabi by its key areas.

In summary, this guide will help you find your way around and cover the main points of interest but not so much off the standard tourist trail - you'll need a fuller (and bulkier) guide to do that. Presentation of the text and maps is clear and of the usual high standard from DK. Recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars Quick reference - used in conjunction. 8 April 2013
By Mared
Format:Paperback
Good for a quick reference to top-10s of things. Doesn't give you the little nooks and cranny's that a lonely planet would. I used this in conjunction with lonely planet Dubai & Abu Dhabi.
Good pull out map.

This is okay but not special. I have a number of DK guides but I am finding that I can get better information from other publishers.

4.0 out of 5 stars A well written addition to the catalog. 2 Dec 2014
By Douglas
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I'm always a big fan of the Top10 Eyewitness books and I've used them for many travels around the world. The Dubai Top10 book is a well written and comprehensive addition to the family. Dubai (old and new) is such a big place that I think it struggles somewhat to give much detail on each subject, instead it has to fleetingly move onto the next subject in order to avoid the book being 2000 pages. With that said it was a worthwhile companion for our recent trip and I would highly recommend it.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not everything needs to be clumped into 10 2 April 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
In general I love the DK books for travel, but this is my first foray into their top 10 collection (as there was no full sized book available).

It does not have a history section, which I generally love and appreciate.

It does clump everything into lists of 10, even where there aren't really 10 things to be listed. Some of the lists are quite contrived din order to get a set of 10 for everything. Plus it's dubai and Abu Dhabi mixed in together. So even if you're only visiting one place, you are reading about things in the other city as they're mixed in each top 10 list (and not always very clear which city some of them are in!

Map of Abu Dhabi leaves a lot to be desired and needs updating to get it right and show more useful landmarks.

3.0 out of 5 stars Poor Maps 26 Jan 2014
By Anon
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
We were dissapointed in this book as the maps were not that useful. I understand that its a guidebook and not an OS map but I had mistakenly thought it would be good enough. It didn't even have a metro (tube) map.
