Abu Dhabi has an international airport, which is the hub for its own carrier Etihad Airways. It is also possible to fly to Dubai with Emirates Airlines. If you book your Emirates ticket through to Abu Dhabi, there is a complimentary shuttle service from Dubai to Abu Dhabi. By car, Abu Dhabi city is approximately 1 - 1.5 hours from Dubai, Yas Island about an hour away. 
Abu Dhabi is more traditional than Dubai, so dressing more conservatively in the city is definitely recommended.

For citizens of other countries, Emirates Airlines provides 48-96 hour stopover visas for a fee in conjunction with your flight, or you can apply for a sponsored visit visa which can be valid for 30-90 days (ask your hotel or airline to sponsor you).

RAMADAN: Please note that during the holy month of Ramadan (dates vary each year) eating and drinking in public, even water, is not allowed by law, and most restaurants and food courts are closed during the day. Restaurants in hotels may be open during the day and life at some beach resorts may not be affected by the Ramadan restrictions. Public life during Ramadan takes place in the evenings until late into the night. Governmental offices, clinics, and other businesses have limited or changed opening hours.

When to visit

The best time to visit Abu Dhabi is October through March, when temperatures are more manageable and there is much less humidity. The summer months get extremely hot reaching temperatures of almost 50 degrees C with high humidity (>90%) especially during the months of July and August.
In the winter temperatures can cool down to mid-teens during the night, in the desert it may get even colder, especially as the sand cooles down quite a bit without the sun warming it. Daytime temperatures are pleasantly in the 20s and low 30s (degrees C) and most restaurants and cafes have outside seating.
