His Excellency Ali Hassan Al Shaiba, Executive Director of Tourism and Marketing at DCT Abu Dhabi said: “We have world-leading attractions and entertainment here in Abu Dhabi, and whilst they are on the tourists’ lists of what to do in the city, we want to make sure they are as accessible as possible.
