It’s a short one this week…

Short and sweet – that’s what we’d call this working week. The long weekend just past has blessed us with a short week of just three days, which means we have fewer days to pack in more capital fun. But fret not, for there is sure to be something fun for all to do. Hello December!

Here are 5 wonderful things to do in Abu Dhabi this week.
