Abu Dhabi is the pearl of the United Arab Emirates and home of the royal family (Al Nahyan). A modern island city, it offers 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.
