Destination Abu Dhabi
A Fantasy Of Modern Design and Arabic Culture
Situated on the western coast of the United Arab Emirates, Abu Dhabi is a fantasy of modern design and conceptualisation. It serves as the Emirates’ capital, and is perched on a T-shaped island jutting out into the Persian Gulf. It has been described as ‘the world’s richest city’, and is responsible for more than 50% of the economic activity for the entire UAE.
The territory, with a population of just under a million, boasts one of the highest per capita incomes in the world, and is characterised by its restrained beauty. Soaring mirrored skyscrapers, architectural marvels, and spotlessly clean parks all combine to create an otherworldly impression. Traditional Arabic culture, blended with a tolerance for international diversity, ensure a variety of attractions for both tourists and business visitors to Abu Dhabi.
Abu Dhabi also hosts the world’s most expensive F1 Grand Prix every year, making it a destination for thousands of motorsport enthusiasts, in addition to the tourists and business people who have already contributed to the territory’s reputation as a ‘must-see’ Middle East destination.
A popular excursion for any holiday in Abu Dhabi is a desert journey across towering dunes with experienced guides and overnighting in Bedouin tents, camel rides and a traditional meal under the stars.
