Service was great with helpful Concierge! The weather is nice in Abu Dhabi now, but the air con was hard for me to get 'just right'!!

... there are an array of glossy glass and concrete hotels and office blocks. Kind of Dubai's version of Venice's Grand Canal. It was a chilled start to the day as we lounged on the Abra taking in the sights.
After this easy start, Kath then galvanised us into action and we were off to experience some souks. As it was still morning they were relatively uncrowded and seemed spacious compared to the markets of Laos and Cambodia. First we walked through a ...

But we made it to the Hotel Tenki and got to our rooms about 30 hours after we began.
And there were no bedbugs!
