A huge crystal chandelier suspended from the ceiling will not block the open mouth. It is a tourist destination that symbolizes Abu Dhabi, reflecting the abundance of the oil powerhouse UAE.
The Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque is visited by many tourists from all over the world, but there are some things to keep in mind. Even though it is a tourist destination, the mosque is a sacred place for Islam. There are a few standards that should be followed when visiting. The dress code is especially important to watch out for. Women can see the skin and clothes that show the body line are NG. Hair should be covered with a scarf or the like. Make sure to prepare in advance and follow the minimum etiquette when sightseeing! Also, since there is morning worship time only on Fridays, the opening time for the open house will be from the evening.

Next, I would like to introduce you to the Emirates Palace, which is called the “7-star hotel “. Many tourists from all over the world come to see the spectacular building at a glance. The gorgeous building, which is more like a palace than a hotel, has all kinds of facilities such as a private pool and gym. It is a tourist destination unique to the UAE where celebrities gather from all over the world. For those who are out of reach of accommodation, we recommend the “LE CAFE” in the hotel.

“LE CAFE” offers “Emirates Palace Cappuccino”, generally known as “Gold Leaf Cappuccino”. Gold leaf is luxuriously piled up on the fragrant cappuccino. The price is less than 2000 yen.

Also, the dome with a geometric pattern made of metal like a bird’s nest is also characteristic.
Although the number of works is less than that of the Louvre Museum, paintings by world-famous painters such as Van Gogh and Picasso are also exhibited.
