MUCH MORE THAN JUST A STOPOVER
Abu Dhabi combines the best of Arabian tradition and modernity with its architecture and atmosphere.
Abu Dhabi is the stunning capital and principal state of the United Arab Emirates. Alongside impressive skyscrapers in the main city, there are atmospheric towns and souks, which create an interesting link to the culture of the indigenous Bedouin people. Many say that Abu Dhabi is an opulent and fascinating stopover in the Middle East since it contains some of the world’s tallest, fastest and most expensive objects.
Luxury is the word when it comes to accommodation in Abu Dhabi. Hotels range from contemporary chic to those with traditional Arabian architecture, such as the mesmerising Emirates Palace.
There is no chance of being bored in Abu Dhabi. Popular activities include visiting Saadiyat Island harbours, Yas Waterpark and the iconic Ferrari World, complete with the world’s fastest rollercoaster. Golden shores and sparkling seas grace the 8 km Corniche Waterfront, which is the ideal location to go for a cycle or jog whilst soaking in the splendours of the Arabian city. Regarding architecture, all around buildings will astound you but none quite like Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque, which boasts 80 domes, 1000 ivory columns and a gold-plated roof.
The rolling red dunes of the Liwa Desert in the Empty Quarter provide a breath-taking backdrop to your stay in the city, and you can actually stay in the desert itself. Interestingly, the Empty Quarter is home to the world’s largest uninterrupted desert. Nothing quite compares to the magic of a meal in the desert underneath a blanket of twinkling stars, perhaps the epitome of romance.
