The brash, bold city of Abu Dhabi is a modern marvel, capital of the wealthy United Arab Emirates and headquarters of the world’s richest oil operating companies. The pulsating city, with futuristic skyscrapers and wide tree-lined boulevards, is capitalising on its sophistication, amazing duty-free shopping zone, its luxury hotels and top class transport and communication infrastructure. They come not only for the ‘retail therapy’ and glitz, but also to explore the fascinating culture of the vast Abu Dhabi Emirate itself (it is the largest of the seven Emirates), with its miles of desert and interesting oases.
There is a lot to see from Ferrari World, the largest indoor amusement park in the world, to The White Fort which is the oldest building in Abu Dhabi featuring a museum of traditional artefacts and historical photographs.
Sunshine and blue skies are guaranteed almost every day in Abu Dhabi where temperatures between June & September soar and are considered too hot for most westerners and this is exacerbated by high humidity. So you’ll need plenty of high factor sunscreen and water if you intend to go outside. Between October and May however the temperature and humidity are very manageable and are great for family holidays.
In terms of entertainment, most of the bars and clubs located in the cities upmarket hotels are allowed to serve alcohol under UAE law. The nightlife only kicks off from about 11pm and many venues have strict dress codes to adhere to but have an otherwise relaxed and safe atmosphere to enjoy. There are also all inclusive resort hotels with plenty of entertainment for the younger families too.
