    Default Things to do in Abu Dhabi

    Going with SWMBO and (quiet, shy) 16yo son for a week mid-October.

    I've been there on business before, but around 10 years ago and the only impression I got was 'nicer than Dubai'.
    But a demand for sun, warmth and tennis was put to me and BA added the return flight to/from Inverness to the LHR/Abu Dhabi trip for only a pound!

    So far I've booked a one-bedroom suite in the Marriott as they seem to have nice swimming pools and tennis courts and the exec lounge access should keep us fairly well fed and watered.
    Oh, and I've booked a single-seater session at the Yas circuit for SWMBO and myself...we are both very competitive so might be interesting.

    Will probably do Yas Waterworld one of the days.
    Any recommendations of other places to go / things to see?

    Thanks

    Get drunk, kiss the wife in public and then hold hands (not that I'm suggesting you need to be drunk to show the wife any affection).
