    In what way, they have a great cigar selection. The terminal I was in was weirdly set out, in a good way if you're shopping.

    My wife, son & I are stopping there en-route to Manila in a couple of weeks & I would like to get a 'feel' for the place, hygiene, things to do, parts to avoid etc. Outbound isn't too bad it's only two hours but the return flight we are there for 9 hours.

    I have seen these which i will put the wife & son in as it is an overnight stay.

    Like most ME airports it is very clean and there are loads of places to eat/drink/generally spend money.

    Never saw them pods before so can't help you there.

    +1 for these comments. I've used it to transfer between flights and also been on holiday to Abu Dhabi and if you've got a few quid to spend then the shops are good. Never seen those pods though - they look cool.

    It's very busy though and I remember us struggling to get seats. I think on entering the departure lounge you look down on all the shops and they are in a circle shape which you take a short escalator down to.
