Most people have heard about the wonders of Dubai, which is known as one of the best tourist destinations in the world, but only an hour and a half away from Abu Dhabi. As the capital of the emirates, the president’s home city, and a host of incredible tourist attractions, the glory of Abu Dhabi should not be underestimated.
So, what are some of the wonders of Abu Dhabi?
The Sheikh Zayed Mosque is right at the top of this list. This is one of the most beautiful mosques ever built. The pure marble walls’ intricate floral designs decorated elegantly with gems make this an architectural masterpiece.
For all those adventure lovers, Ferrari World offers the experience of riding the fastest roller coaster in the world; this accelerates to 240 kilometres per hour in just a few seconds. As this is not for the faint hearted, Ferrari World also offers an indoor theme park full of fun attractions. Abu Dhabi has it all covered!
As a more traditional city than Dubai, this is the best place to explore Emirati culture, tradition and natural beauty. The Sir Bani Yas Island is located near the coast of Abu Dhabi and houses rare animals such as cheetahs and hyenas. So plan a visit to explore this wildlife paradise.
Itineraries can also be filled with: a visit to a waterpark; the Emirates palace (the most expensive hotel ever to be built); some fun in the sun on the beautiful Cornish beach; taking part in water sports; visiting the new Louvre museum as well as many other local cultural events.
Abu Dhabi is the perfect destination for a luxurious and fun filled experience with natural surroundings… a place not to be overlooked!
