Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates

Overview

Starting out as a pearl diving settlement, Abu Dhabi is now the glitzy, modern, high-rise capital of the UAE.

The nearly six kilometer long corniche follows the island city’s coastline, and there are public parks, fountains and beaches.

Browse the souqs for carpets or gold, check out the Abu Dhabi Music and Arts Foundation, or take a guided tour of the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque.

You can get your adrenaline fix at Ferrari World, view the city from above on a helicopter ride, paddle around the island mangrove forests on a kayaking tour, or head into the desert in a four-by-four.
