Forts

Neil has a fondness for castles. We usually have to visit each and every one of these on our travels and they usually involve a climb. It turns out that forts also come under the same category. This being Abu Dhabi, though, we could drive practically to the front door. Win, win then.

I would say that the old palace of Sheikh Zayed also comes into this category. Now a museum and decorated in the traditional style to represent what it would have been like in the pre-oil days, I was a little more enthusiastic about this one. Definitely worth a visit.
