This place is stunning with absolutely breathtaking interior and exterior. My favourite part of the visit was The Light Show. Would recommend to go there just before last admission as it's too long waiting time before the light show. It's a MUST place to go.

Super but just do not forget that a dress code is obligatory to visit. No skinny and short clothes, and shoulders must be covered. Except that, Qasr al Watan is wonderful site to visit ❤️❤️❤️

It's great that they offer discounted tickets. I booked them for my parents and they were able to access the attractions easily. However, it's a little hard to get the tickets if you are not an app user. I could't download the app in korea so I had to use the chat - help support service in order to download the tickets. But this proccess wasn't hard at all.

An architectural marvel

Nestled in Abu Dhabi, Qasr Al Watan is a presidential palace that was recently opened to the public. One of the finest examples of Arabic architecture and craftsmanship, the palace's design signifies its heritage and its future vision. The palace has its own library with books on a wide range of subjects including archaeology, history, heritage, memoirs, biographies, human and social sciences, statistics, administration, culture, literature, arts, etc. It also has its own gift shops; one at the Visitors Center and the other at the palace building. One of the major attractions of the palace is its light and sound show, which depicts the history and growth of the UAE as a nation. This show has been divided into three acts: past, present, and future.

Optional treats
