From Abu Dhabi city's famous Corniche to the Oasis City of Al Ain and the massive dunes of Al Dhafra's Empty Quarter desert, culture, history and adventure are encapsulated in the emirate.
Experience the architectural prowess of the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque, enjoy the peace and tranquillity of a stroll through Al Ain's cooling oasis, learn about the ancient sport of falconry, experience an adrenaline rush on the world’s fastest roller coaster, or marvel at the history of an emirate dotted with ancient forts and historic sites – several of which have been listed as official UNESCO World Heritage Sites.
And whether you’re marvelling at the always-changing views of Abu Dhabi while experiencing the emirate by land, air or sea, or experiencing the genuine feel of authentic Arabia while relaxing under the stars on a desert safari, playing golf on one of our championship-standard courses, or spending a fun day – and money – in one of our luxurious malls, you’ll discover that Abu Dhabi is a genuine leisure haven that will convince you to return again and again
Almost all tour operators offer city tours and desert safaris, while some specialise in more diverse activities such as rounds of golf, fishing or diving expeditions, kayaking trips through mangrove forests, helicopter tours and desert driving courses or visits to the Abu Dhabi Falcon Hospital or Saluki (desert hunting dogs) Centre.
Explore our culture and heritage through a variety of authentic experiences – from cruising our waters in a pearling boat to traditional horse and camel racing.
From traditional horse riding to challenging your friends - paintball, sailing and wakeboarding to adrenaline filled go-karting, Abu Dhabi is an emirate of sporting prowess.
Shopping is something of a national pastime in Abu Dhabi, perhaps because it’s so diverse: everything from ultra-modern malls with the latest brands, to small, souk-like outlets where you can buy traditional perfumes, handicrafts, spices and carpets.
Essential to any cooking in the Arabian Gulf is the concept of hospitality and generosity. For generations, dining has traditionally been celebrated and shared with a great deal of warmth over the dinner table – in the early days set under cover of Bedouin tents beneath an infinite blanket of stars of the desert sky.
A destination for the whole family, Abu Dhabi invites you to discover the awe-inspiring Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque, to have an adrenaline rush while challenging the world’s fastest roller coaster in the largest indoor theme park, to take a stroll in the relaxing Al Ain Oasis, to feed the animals in the emirate’s engaging zoos, or to have a great day out on the UAE capital’s landmark Corniche.
