Gaze in awe at the majestic Grand Mosque and vast array of skyscrapers dominating the city skyline. Drive along the perfectly manicured waterfront of Corniche. 4WD into the golden sand dunes of Arabia, then experience camel riding and local culture at a Bedouin campsite.
From humble beginnings rise great things. Abu Dhabi has transformed from a small fishing village into a sky-scrapered metropolis that’s the United Arab Emirates’ capital in both name and culture. Marvel at the glittering skyline of glass and steel, and at the marble domes of the Grand Mosque, one of the world’s most extravagant places of worship. Delve into the culture and history of the city-state while wandering down seaside walkways, and 4WD out into the desert and experience local culture at a Bedouin campsite. With a dose of poolside relaxation and retail therapy, this is a perfect short introduction to the Emirates.
