In a city like Abu Dhabi, there’s never a shortage of things to see, places to go and experiences to have. Sleek, modern buildings are surrounded by turquoise waters and a vast desert, ensuring that the city’s landscape is as transient as it is beautiful.
Visitors of any age will enjoy the reams of entertainment options, international landmarks and miles of white, sandy beaches. Time your visit with major events like Formula One and New Year, or save some money and explore the state during its off-peak months.
Whether you get your exercise from swimming, playing golf or carrying shopping bags, you’ll love the amount of choice Abu Dhabi brings. Colossal malls, filled with everything from high fashion to hot bargains, will entice you in for days on end. Award-winning golf courses let you play next to the ocean, with a warm breeze for company. Tropical waters and smooth waves provide the best environment for water sports, regardless of whether you’re an old-timer or first-trier.
Escape the city and delve into the desert, and experience Arabia first hand. Camel rides, belly-dancing, open-air camping and delicate Arabian horses will guide you through the magical scenes of the rolling dunes. If you’re more in dune bashing than belly-dancing, hop in a 4x4 and see the sands at high speeds.
Art, culture and architecture have an important place in Abu Dhabi’s daily life, with great importance placed on treasuring its history while creating new works of art. Past meets present in a stunning clash, all on view for visitors to see. Find out more about Islam and discover the charm and delight of eastern culture.
