Abu Dhabi's two standout attractions are the stunning Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque, one of the world’s most extravagant places of Islamic worship, and the ultra-opulent Emirates Palace Hotel. The spectacular Louvre Abu Dhabi does not only add further gloss to the city’s architectural masterpieces, but it houses a captivating art collection celebrating the contemporary Arab world and the region’s vibrant multicultural heritage.
From architecture to nature, Jebel Hafit Desert Park showcases the natural beauty and historical significance of the highest peak in Abu Dhabi. In the shadow of the peak, you can discover 5,000-year-old tombs and remains that tell stories of the Neolithic period.
If your visit to Jebel Hafit left you wanting to explore, the vast and undulating 'Empty Quarter' desert sands are an enchanting destination. Head here for dune bashing, sand boarding and camel trekking. If this is just scratching the surface for thrill-seekers, Yas Island will continue to scratch that itch. Enjoy high speed and thrills at Ferrari World or state of the art rides at Warner Bros. World.
After the adrenalin has worn off, perhaps relax at one of Abu Dhabi’s many beaches, enjoy al fresco dining on the seafront or go kayaking in the sprawling Mangrove National Park.
