This is a beautiful, Majestic, Luxuriant Palace to visit. First we are shuttled in a clean comfortable bus to this hidden gem, the welcoming open courtyard is astounding, we forgot the July sweltering heat as we took pictures. The white marble and gold intricate details runs throughout the interior. So many crystal chandeliers, be sure to see the giant one inside the Parliamentary meeting room. Delve into the art and displays of interesting, historial facts of the UAE journey and State visits. Do not miss the celebration of Tolerance depicting the Pope's visit. When you get to the main dome, this huge, open, brigh, royal ambience just takes you into dreamland. Be sure to take memorable pics in the golden ärt piece "the power of Words". Loved it, will certainly do it again.

The qasr Al watan experience was amazing. Once you get past the entrance, a shuffle takes you the presidential palace. The palace is surrounded by fountains. There is an amazing view of Itehad Towers from palace steps. The inside is more amazing with grand design inspired by Arabian culture. The Louvre museum is more of an acquired taste. Lots of interesting pieces of art and historical artifacts from all over the world. There was even a kids museum but a bit small.

The studio is small, but it was very comfortable for my wife and me. The neighborhood is very safe and quiet. One block away there are many restaurants, shops, supermarkets and the most important is there the "Salah Al Din" metro station that allows you to go anywhere in Dubai, including the airport.

Great Experience. nice for the family to get together and it is easy to book. The staff is very accommodating, especially on booking my tickets and tours.

Nestled in Abu Dhabi, Qasr Al Watan is a presidential palace that was recently opened to the public. One of the finest examples of Arabic architecture and craftsmanship, the palace's design signifies its heritage and its future vision. The palace has its own library with books on a wide range of subjects including archaeology, history, heritage, memoirs, biographies, human and social sciences, statistics, administration, culture, literature, arts, etc. It also has its own gift shops; one at the Visitors Center and the other at the palace building. One of the major attractions of the palace is its light and sound show, which depicts the history and growth of the UAE as a nation. This show has been divided into three acts: past, present, and future.
