I have travelled countless times to abudhabi since 1995 and this is my favourite place in the world. I live in South Africa where Crime is the order of the day. As long as you abide by their code of conduct and their rule of law, you will never get enough of this beautifuldeveloping city. In all my travels, I have never encountered any issues with the locals or expats
