Abu Dhabi is the capital of the UAE and one of the most modern cities in the world. Visitors revel in large gardens and parks, green boulevards, sophisticated high-rise buildings but the city is most known for its amazing duty free shopping, glitz and glamour and luxury hotels.
The city of Abu Dhabi was made using land having been reclaimed from the sea and now is bursting skywards at dizzying speed. The city is set on an island bathed in glorious sunshine and surrounded by the beautifully warm clear waters of the Persian Gulf.
Abu Dhabi is home to over 200 natural islands and a short drive from the centre takes you to Saadiyat Island where hawksbill turtles nest on the sweeping beachfront every year.
One can enjoy a veritable feast of the finest cuisines that reflect every taste and culture under the sun. From classic English fare and exciting grill cuisine at the Marco Pierre White Steakhouse and Grill at the Fairmont Bab al Bahr Hotel to the Michelin – starred Hakkasan at Emirates Palace.
