Great Places to Visit
From the wonder of its incredible landmarks, including Yas Island and the Zayed Museum, to the famous camel market and falcon hospital, Abu Dhabi is a city of contrasts.
Take up a Sport
Abu Dhabi isn’t just home to an F1 race of epic proportions. There’s a full programme of sporting opportunities for you to have a go at, including amazing golf courses where you can practise your swing, watersports including sailing, snorkelling, kayaking and free diving, and equestrian clubs which offer horse riding and treks.
Stroll Along the Corniche
The Corniche is 8km of manicured waterfront walkway – dotted with fountains, parks and public beaches - that offers beautiful views of Abu Dhabi’s cityscape. Why not hire a bike and hit the cycle path? There are plenty of cafes along the pathway too, so you can stop for a refreshing drink.
Explore Yas Island
Home to a Ferrari-themed amusement park (including racing simulations, a kids F1 track, coasters and a freefall ride), Yas Waterworld, a chic marina and the Yas Island Circuit which hosts the F1 Abu Dhabi Grand Prix, Yas Island is full of super attractions for all (especially F1 fans)! There are also 5 restaurants on the island.
Absorb the Unique Abu Dhabi Culture
From a tour of the beautifully intricate Sheikh Zayed Mosque (the largest of its kind in the UAE), to the Heritage Village where you can see replica buildings, traditional wooden boats and pretty handicrafts, Abu Dhabi has enough cultural highlights to keep you busy for days. Also worth a view is the Qasr Al-Hosn fortress.
