Abu Dhabi is a city that stretches to meet your budget and the amount of time you have. Seeing the city in 36 hours is possible, meaning long weekends away are ideal. The lack of jet-lag, huge availability of flights and cheap taxi services means nothing will hold you back while exploring the city on a whistle-stop tour.
However, if you really want to immerse yourself into the city, 10 – 14 days is perfect. You’ll be able to see everything the emirate has to offer, as well as being able to expand into neighbouring states, such as Dubai and Al Ain.
If your holiday is being arranged around a certain event in Abu Dhabi’s calendar, such as the Formula One, make sure you sort your travel and accommodation well in advance, and it’s often worth booking an extra week either side, to miss the rise in prices.
From a weekend to a fortnight, Abu Dhabi can offer you anything you want to see, in the timeframe you have available. Extended stopovers can be the perfect way to experience the city – before you book your flights back to enjoy the emirate over a longer period of time!
