Abu Dhabi has an effective public transport system. Buses run frequently between many stops in central Abu Dhabi and the Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre (ADNEC).
Abu Dhabi's culture is firmly rooted in Arabia's Islamic traditions. Islam is more than a religion; it is a way of life that governs everyday events from what to wear to what to eat and drink.
The attitude toward clothing in Abu Dhabi is relaxed, but visitors (men as well as women) should show due deference in public places to local customs by avoiding excessively revealing attire. Discretion and polite elegance are the watchwords.
Women play a full and active part in the life of the country, and experience no special restrictions of dress or behaviour in day-to-day life. The United Arab Emirates are also exceptionally safe for women travelling on their own. Whatever time of day or night, moving about town is never a problem.
Local service personnel have a fluent command of English and other major international languages, so when you have something to say, you will be readily understood.
