Sacred & Religious Sites · Theme Parks · Safaris
Take a trip to Abu Dhabi to discover a modern metropolis built on a strip of land jutting out into the Persian Gulf. The city grew rapidly after the 1960s oil discovery, transforming itself into a technological, commercial, and cultural center of the region. Admire the colossal architecture, shop in huge malls, or head to one of the city's many theme and water parks for a family-friendly Abu Dhabi vacation. Heritage sites offer a look at the region's lifestyle before oil, and internationally renowned museums display artifacts from across the Islamic world. Our United Arab Emirates attractions planner allows you to schedule your trip to Abu Dhabi, learn about its attractions, and find out about where else to go during your holiday.
