Destination Spotlight: Abu Dhabi

Abu Dhabi is the capital city and the largest of the seven Emirates making up the United Arab Emirates. It is a city of contrasts. You'll find the domes and minarets of traditional mosques nestled beside ultramodern skyscrapers, chic five-star hotels near vibrant traditional souks (markets) and futuristic tourist attractions neighbouring kilometres of rolling desert dunes.

When it comes to considering the best things to do in Abu Dhabi, it is worth noting that there are more than 2000 parks and gardens and 400 kilometres of coastline, all combining to make Abu Dhabi an apt holiday destination for all.

For those looking to engage with Gulf culture, Abu Dhabi offers opportunities to understand the UAE's history through museums, exhibitions and tours. It’s also experienced through strolls around the dhow harbour, haggling in markets and absorbing the atmosphere at sheesha cafes.
