Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates

From Abu Dhabi City's famous Corniche to the Oasis City of Al Ain and the massive dunes of the western region's Empty Quarter desert in Al Gharbia, culture, history and adventure are encapsulated in the emirate. Experience the architectural prowess of the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque, enjoy the peace and tranquility 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 marveling 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 in one of our traditional markets & souks, you’ll discover that Abu Dhabi is a genuine leisure haven that will convince you to return again and again.
