Product Description


Book Bargains and Previews, November 2012 I couldn't put the book down since it covered a lot of interesting short reads. I recommend this book as a start for a quickie read and to take along with you as a guide when you visit Dubai. I thought it was worth the buy as there are very few decent guide books of Dubai.

3.0 out of 5 stars Er.. where's the Abu Dhabi bit?! 22 Sep 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Don't get me wrong - the book is up to the usual high standard of Lonely Planet guides, jam-packed full of top tips. However, I bought this "Dubai & Abu Dhabi" guide as I'm going on holiday to Abu Dhabi. Of the first 146 pages of the book (ie not the history & useful info bits), a full 7 pages are devoted to Abu Dhabi - staying, eating, sightseeing, shopping, the lot. SEVEN pages. Somewhat disappointed. Oh well, guess I better have at least one day-trip to Dubai to make the purchase worthwhile!

1.0 out of 5 stars Overall rather disappointing..... 14 Sep 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I ordered this guidebook for my upcoming trip to Dubai and Abu Dhabi. I have previously been to Dubai but wanted a more upto date guidebook which covered both locations. This guide promotes itself as a 'Dubai & Abu Dhabi' book however there are only 7 pages devoted to overviewing Abu Dhabi in compassion to roughly 130 pages on Dubai. What a disappointing buy, I feel not better prepared to explore th capital of the UAE!

1.0 out of 5 stars Where is Abu Dhabi? 5 Dec 2013
By JD Leic
The title of the book is very misleading as it is 99% focused on Dubai and there are only a handful of pages (no maps) relating to Abu Dhabi.
