These are the cars on the road of Abu Dhabi, relatively cheap and no road tax at all........
One thing for sure the cars found on the roads of Abu Dhabi or maybe in any Arab land is definitely of great envy. In Abu Dhabi Suvs are very popular.
Cars are cheap and no road tax required. in AD in amounts on the cars is every increasing problem of car parking has becpme acute. Note these illegal parking habit which is rampant everywhere. But there was a few instances that I was informed of police issuing summons for illegal parking.Talking about police, please do not think of ‘settlement' with police. Don't try in Ad & Dubai. These policemen are all well taken care by the government hence your attempt will back fire with you ended up behind bars.

Construction started since 2001 and it is still on going…
Saray artisans worked for more than three years hand-inlaying intricate patterns of flowering vines onto 1,054 white marble columns for the entrance and side arcades of this remarkable mosque which opened in 2007. The hundreds and thousands of rare and beautiful cut stones used in the columns include lapis lazuli, amethyst, onyx, aventurine and mother-of-pearl.

Opening in Autumn 2007, Abu Dhabi's Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque will be one of the largest Mosques in the world; able to accommodate more than 30,000 worshipers.
