So Much To Sea and Eat; Great Seafood and a Great View of Gwangalli Beach

As you travel down the strip on Gwangalli Beach, there's so much to choose from. Lights everywhere indicating, "We're open for business. We're the best on the beach, and we have everything you need right here, plus, a great view of the bridge and the beach. And not surprising at all, is the number of seafood restaurants that appear from all around in this wonderful area. I recently visited a Korean seafood restaurant called Badajulgae, (ba-da-jul-gay), which roughly translates to "sea of shellfish".

Culture in Abu Dhabi

The culture of the UAE is defined by its diverse and multicultural society. It's an Islamic country, and Islam is the source of much of dominant culture. The UAE is culturally liberal, however expatriates moving to the UAE for a teaching job in Abu Dhabi or Dubai are advised to take into account local cultural sensitivities and behave themselves accordingly.

Food in Saudi Arabia

Arabian cuisine is strong flavored and spicy. If you like rich combinations of food, you will definitely like the food in Saudi Arabia. Most dishes contain meat, rice, wheat, vegetables and spices that give these recipes a special flavor.

Mecca - Muslim Only

The Holy City of Mecca, which lies inland 73 kilometers east of Jeddah, is the place where the Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him, was born - the place where God's message was first revealed to him and the city to which he returned after the migration to Medina in 622 AD.

Language in the UAE

  Like much of the Gulf region, Arabic is the mother tongue of the Emirati people and serves as the official language of the UAE and Abu Dhabi. The Emirates is situated between Oman and Saudi Arabia, at the southeast end of the Arabian Peninsula, and, as such, Arabic is spoken throughout the region, with Abu Dhabi being no exception.
