Abu Dhabi

Sheikh Zayed mosque

Arabian nights, luxury and mystery

Abu Dhabi is the pearl of the United Arab Emirates, home of the royal family (Al Nahyan), a modern island city with spectacular skyscrapers, luxurious hotels and a shopping experience that would keep the most dedicated shopaholic busy for years. Like any major metropolis, it is a city that never sleeps, but it is also a hub of culture. Arabic poetry, dances and music are promoted enthusiastically, and you can also witness sports that have archaic origins (like camel racing and dhow sailing).
