Manarat Al Saadiyat

One of my utmost favorite places in Dubai hosted a trip to Abu Dhabi to get a tour of the Manarat Al Saadiyat. It was such a perfect day! Mako and I waited at Nadi Al Quoz, sipped on some Peach Iced Teas while we waited to board the bus.

I AM OBSESSED WITH ART GALLERIES, if you hadn’t known yet. I mean, I have talked about it in detail on this post, and this post — so you can imagine how psyched I was en route to Abu Dhabi.

Disclaimer — I have failed to get all of the Artists’ names and Artwork titles. Please comment on this post to help me out, if you recognize any of the stuff I’ve put up. Thanks!

I probably took more than 5 minutes looking at these pieces, because they are INSANE. They’re ACTUAL layered collages, stuck on glass. Do you see the dimensions? GLORIOUS

Any Jeddahwi would know …

They knew they were on the photo, but honestly, it’s a pretty good shot!

We capped off the night by heading to the closest mall for Food Court Food, then Carlo’s, then a nightcap at a Dubai “night spot” (is that even a word)? I forgot the name of the place, lel.

Can’t wait until the next one!
