Getting Around - Buses, bikes and boats are all options for getting around the city, exploring the Corniche or getting to some of the Gulf’s islands. But for the simplest way of exploring the city without breaking the bank, taxis are the way to go. Government monitored prices and fare displaying meters help ensure you don’t get ripped off. Guests staying at Southern Sun Abu Dhabi are welcome to let the concierge or doorman call you a taxi to ensure that it is reputable.
Visas and Entry Requirements in Abu Dhabi - Aside from normal flight restrictions, bringing in products forbidden by Islamic law (pork, anti-Islam literature, pornography and even some prescription medicines) is not permitted. Visitors bringing in prescription medicine should always make sure they have appropriate documentation and that it is on the permitted list. For most visitors (60 different nationalities) a free 30-day (including UK, USA, Australia and Japan) or 90-day visa (including many European and South American countries) will be granted on arrival. It is recommended you check before travelling to see if your country falls under any visa restrictions. If not, arrival is usually easy and hassle free.
