Abu Dhabi City Guide


Abu Dhabi, by far the largest of the Emirates, is Dubai’s calmer, cultural cousin. Only 50 years ago, Abu Dhabi was just a fishing village, in a very short space of time it has been transformed into a fascinating modern city. It now boasts some impressive attractions, stunning beaches and plenty of interesting things to do, especially for those who enjoy a cultural break.

Experience a taste of the Middle East in the capital of the UAE, where you will notice the blend of East meets West. Abu Dhabi's beaches, cultural sites and glorious green spaces provide a different experience to the glitz and glam of Dubai. It’s more conservative, less manic in Abu Dhabi, but it still has amazing shopping malls, plenty of high end restaurants and even a few nightclubs. If you are looking for year round sunshine, luxury hotels and authentic cultural experiences then you will thoroughly enjoy a holiday to Abu Dhabi.
