Abu Dhabi is like the little embryo in a mother's womb, and Dubai is like a fully grown mature blonde.
... and Sharjah is just a natural blonde with BLACK coloured hair. :lol:

your kidding me rite, abu dhabi has a lot better layout then dubai and roads are much better and wider. :bash:

dubai is better in other ways, like it has much more fun stuff to do.

If you ask any architect who's into landscaping they will tell u that the grid layout is always prefered and considered more efficient than the kinda layout of roads that Dubai has. Abu Dhabi is better planned city when it comes to the road network, infact I would go as far as saying Abu Dhabi has the best road network in the UAE, although there is a lot of room for improvement.

I prefer living in Abu Dhabi to Dubai simply because it's not as fast paced as Dubai. But on weekends there is no better place to be than Dubai! But then again, I've been brought up in Abu Dhabi and I have a shit load of friends in Dubai so that's how I feel. I love them both at the end of the day.

hey, mathematically, i am sure AD has a better layout, more like a grid,
but IMO i like dubai's i am not restricted to 90 degree angel road, and a web of parallel and perpendicular road, i like how dubai is spread out, more space, more twists and turns, bridges, under passes, u know, its not normal,
abu dhabi network, seems like it was designed by some nerd, everything had to be exact, dubai network, is more like , we'll build it as we go, and we'll see what we'll end up with, (might be weird and abnormal, then again, whats normal about dubai )
