Abu Dhabi, the capital city of the UAE is famous for its many world records, a few of which include the fastest roller coaster, the largest hand-loomed carpet, the tower with the greatest lean and the highest high tea. Although, this is not all that this exciting city has to offer. If you are one of those people who are looking to learn about the culture of the Gulf, Abu Dhabi is a great place to do so. Its many museums, exhibitions and tours gives the traveller multiple opportunities to understand the history of the UAE. At the same time this is not the only way to experience Abu Dhabi, taking a walk through the dhow harbour, haggling with the vendors in the markets or visiting one of the many sheesha café’s will give you just as good an experience. As one of the richest cities in the world, it is absolutely expert at showcasing the sublime and is most definitely the king of bling. As the essence of Arabia it has white domed mosques, minarets that mimic candy canes, large romantic deserts along with camel racing and sand dunes. Abu Dhabi also has a contemporary side which combines big and brash with flashy and fast, being home to the world’s most expensive mosque, which was built in the 90’s and the world’s most expensive hotel where even the cakes are made of gold. It is a place that has great spots to live out the millionaire’s lifestyle for a day.

Go Off Road
What better way to explore this incredible city than by taking it off-road? Thrill-seekers can soar across the sands on a 4x4 dune buggy experience in the heart of the UAE desert.

If you’re a nature lover, just outside of Abu Dhabi city centre is the sprawling Mangrove National Park, where you can hop on a kayak and escape the hustle of the city for an hour or two - crowned as one of the emirate’s most important ecological assets, this biodiversity hot spot is world’s away from the cosmopolitan streets.
