Abu Dhabi is the capital of the United Arab Emirates, the largest of the seven Emirates and home to one of the richest cities in the world. This second most populous city of the UAE lies on a T-shaped island with its futuristic skyscrapers rising from the desert coast of the Arabian Gulf. Among the modern island city there are remains of an older and more cultural society. Often called the ‘Arabian Jewel’ – it is a deserved title given its pleasant mixture of modern luxury, fascinating heritage and beautiful coastlines. Once a small fishing village surrounding a fort and a scattering of houses, Abu Dhabi has grown to become one of the world’s most exclusive holiday destinations. With cheap holiday packages to Abu Dhabi get the best of everything, from pristine beaches to world-class sporting events and a glimpse of the local, more rural culture.
Culture is an important part of holidays to Abu Dhabi, as this beautiful destination is known as the region’s ‘cultural heart’. Abu Dhabi is a home to the sixth largest mosque in the world. Visit the impressive Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque. An architectural marvel is decorated almost entirely in white and gold with a capacity for an astonishing 40,000 worshippers. Most impressive of all is the mosque’s library, located on the upper floor of the Northern Minaret. The collection includes over 50,000 rare editions of manuscripts and Arabic calligraphy. The Al Maqtaa Fort, the 200 year old castle was used as a watch house against bandits and protected the city. If you’re interested in culture and heritage, catch a cab to the Heritage Village on the Corniche Breakwater and step back in time to a traditional desert lifestyle. Bargain with souvenir sellers and watch craftsmen at work producing pottery, weaving and metal work.
Head to Corniche - a marvellous promenade and enjoy an impressive eight kilometres of manicured waterfront that includes children’s play areas, separate cycle and pedestrian pathways, cafés and restaurants.
