Abu Dhabi – Today in UAE
Abu Dhabi city is witnessing a lot of fitness enthusiasts these days. People are walking and cycling more than they used to do earlier. The recent hike in taxi fares may be one of the reason. The normal cheap taxi fares no more exist. The moment you hop into an Abu Dhabi taxi, the minimum charge applicable is AED 12/-. This has resulted in many taking up cycling as a more convenient option.
What do you do if you cannot afford to a costlier or bigger bicycle? You look at various online sites for secondhand bicycles being sold. Going for the cheaper ones, you end up buying even children bicycles. Modify it a bit and allow and standing stand for your partner to stand at the back, you are ready for your daily trips. This is what you are witnessing these days in the city.
It is hot, but it is enjoyable. Start early before the sun rises. Work late till it cools down. Cycle your way to office and back home. You are perfectly fit.
Of course, there is a big advantage. However, stressed you begin your journey, after a few minutes, you will forget and start enjoying the beauty around or even reliving your past…
Try it out and tell me if I am wrong. Happy and #SafeCycling #InAbuDhabi
Use registered taxis for safety and comfort
Abu Dhabi Airport arrival is changing day by day. In the earlier days when passengers arrive, they are welcomed by two types of people. One, their or friends or family and second the illegal taxi operators hanging around. As the authorities renovated and made things beautiful at the arrival section, they also came out with a dedicated section for Taxis. No more stopping and following by unauthorized taxi operators, whose vehicle condition or status are unknown. Travel safe. Enjoy your stay in Abu Dhabi. Thanks to Abu Dhabi Airport authorities for this welcome change.
The Research & Development Awards were the highlight of the Opening Session. The awards, which recognize those who are leaving an exceptional impact on the energy industry with a clear vision for the long term future of energy, were presented by Mr. Mohamed Butti Al Qubaisi, ADNOC’s E&P Director.
