Mums and kids en­joy Abu Dhabi

Travel Daily - - Contents -

LAST month, five travel agents from MTA and their chil­dren were lucky enough to par­tic­i­pate in a famil to Abu Dhabi, hosted by the Depart­ment of Cul­ture and Tourism-Abu Dhabi and Eti­had Air­ways, and sup­ported by Emirates Palace and the Park Hy­att.

Win­ners of the MTA ex­clu­sive famil were se­lected af­ter they com­pleted a quiz on the fam­ily of­fer­ings in Abu Dhabi, and de­scribed why they wanted to go to the city.

Par­tic­i­pants of the famil were: Tracey Lee Flower and her son Har­ri­son Lee Flower; Alysha White and Ziggy Beat­tie; Na­dia Mur­phy and Gin­ger Mur­phy; Jen­nifer McCul­lough and Sam Hewens; Belinda Paul and Matilda Paul; and Abu Dhabi Coun­try Man­ager Jen­nifer Gaskin.

High­lights of the trip were Fri brunch at the Rose­wood which in­cluded games and ac­tiv­i­ties for the chil­dren, vis­it­ing the theme parks on Yas Is­land in­clud­ing Warner Bros. World, Fer­rari World and Yas Wa­ter­world, CLYMB Abu Dhabi and the Fal­con Hos­pi­tal.

Stay­ing at the stun­ning ho­tels of Emirates Palace and the Park Hy­att on Saadiyat Is­land, the mums and kids were treated to the ul­ti­mate in Abu

Dhabi lux­ury.

FEARS sur­round­ing the on­go­ing out­break of coro­n­avirus have hit the Aussie dol­lar hard, which re­mains trapped at 11-year lows.

Other cur­ren­cies feel­ing the squeeze in­clude the Chi­nese yuan and Sin­ga­pore dol­lar, while the US dol­lar, Ja­panese yen and Swiss franc have con­tin­ued on an up­ward tra­jec­tory.

On a more pos­i­tive note, the AUDNZD gained 0.5%.
