Despite being the largest of the 7 Emirates that make up the UAE, Abu Dhabi is often overshadowed by the glitz and glam of Dubai. An hour and a half’s drive away from Dubai, the capital of UAE packs in loads of sightseeing, family fun and a dose of Middle Eastern culture. Holidays to Abu Dhabi offer amazing weather, modern hotels and all the best city and beach activities in one. Lounge on the Blue Flag Corniche beach, explore the Ferrari World that houses the world’s fastest rollercoaster, or admire the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque – the fun never ends in Abu Dhabi holidays.

 

With incredible mosques, man-made islands, gleaming skyscrapers and perfect beaches to potter along, Abu Dhabi has the perfect mix of history, architecture and attractions to make this a great destination worth visiting all year round. Enjoy classy restaurants, all-inclusive hotels, golf resorts, waterparks and the world-famous Formula One Grand Prix which attracts top celebrities every year. Those travelling with kids in tow can go for a fun day out to the Emirates Park Zoo, just 35km away from the city on the way to Dubai.

 

Abu Dhabi is certainly a sun-soaked city that doesn’t do things by half!
