Abu Dhabi 411

Al Raha Beach/Khalifa City A 411

This interactive map is all about the burbs.

City folks have enough interactive maps, guide books and stuff. There are precious few resources for us: the intrepid, suburban pioneers of Abu Dhabi. Some call us crazy. I prefer to think of as sweaty, dazed and confused until we find our way around. This map is VERY biased and full of my not-so-humble opinions. I am only listing schools, medical practitioners and places of business that I have used or know something about. There are so many more. Consider this map and list of links below as a starting off point. You may love it or hate it. I don’t really care. This map simply represents what took my family a year to learn the hard way about making your life here in the suburbs of Abu Dhabi. If you have any questions what so ever, please contact me. I am happy to defend my positions on the below mentioned establishments, elaborate or add any that you think I have inadvertently missed. Just enlarge the map above, scroll down for the web links below and have fun finding your way around. This map will show you where to go but, more importantly, it will help you learn where not to go! What time to get gas. What food is atrocious and where to buy booze and your favorite foreign things! Enjoy! I couldn’t place live links in the map above so all the helpful links are below categorized by type business, school or activity.
