Visiting Abu Dhabi

Abu Dhabi is where stunning desert landscapes and traditional Arabian culture merge together to create a memorable experience. A vibrant emirate rich with history and heritage is reflected in the variety of activities available on land and at sea. Visit one of the emirate’s old forts, ride the dunes on an exhilarating desert safari, take a boat tour of the mangroves, or attend a major sporting event. Make sure you visit Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque – the UAE’s most imposing religious and national landmark. See www.abudhabievents.ae
