Travel Forums Africa and The Middle East Weekend in Abu Dhabi

Hey guys I'm new to this forum, in fact I'm fairly new to traveling.

I'm currently serving in the Swiss army and have a few days off during the first weekend of June. I wasn't really thinking of going somewhere special, more like just chill around here and make good use of the few days I've got off. I came across what seems like a good deal for a 3 night trip in Abu Dhabi.

616CHF for the flight and 3 nights at the Crowne Plaza (about 700$)

Is it worth going that far just for a few days ? What is there to do in Abu Dhabi ? Is Abu Dhabi an expensive city ? How good a deal is this ?

45 minutes drive and you'll be in Dubai. You can find almost everything there.

Uhm, it's two hours between Dubai and Abu Dhabi, unless you drive 200km/hour
About what to do there: enjoy the fact that it is not Dubai

Ive been to Dubai in March, its great.
If you are there you should surely visit the Dubai Mall and the Burj Khalifa (Tallest building of the world)

In Dubai there were some places where there was Girlsnight, girls could get free drinks. But it was only at some days. But the local youth would know where and when that is.

Don't now if its worth it to go for 3 nights, cause you probably have a jetlag too from flying.
