What to see and do on a Holiday to Abu Dhabi
Travellers on a holiday to Abu Dhabi should spend at least one day exploring the Sheikh Zayed Mosque. This is the 6th largest mosque in the world, and a marvel of Middle Eastern architecture with 1,000 columns, 80 domes, and chandeliers made of 24-karat gold and Swarovski crystal. Non-Muslims are welcome to visit the mosque, however, visitors should take care to dress conservatively out of respect for this holy place.
Abu Dhabi is a haven for kids and the young at heart as there are plenty of places to enjoy thrilling rides, interesting wildlife and fun games. For an action-packed day, head to Ferrari World where you can ride the world’s fastest roller coaster, enjoy a 4-D simulated adventure through jungles and volcanoes and learn about the history of this iconic car brand. The Corniche is Abu Dhabi’s waterfront, and a great place to find pretty walkways, sandy beaches, colourful playgrounds and tempting cafes and restaurants. Visitors can also watch camel races, visit the aquarium, or take a desert safari out to the dunes.
You would be hard pressed to find a better place in the world for shopping than Abu Dhabi. It seems that everywhere you turn there are modern shopping malls with brand name designer labels, boutique shops, and family-run stores. For a more authentic experience, head to one of the many souks, where you can buy exquisite carpets, gold jewellery, antique furniture, exotic spices and fresh produce. Just remember that bargaining is expected at the stalls, so don’t be afraid to haggle hard.
