Abu Dhabi is an ultra-modern city located on an island in the Persian Gulf. It is the capital city of the United Arab Emirates and the largest city in the seven Arab Emirates. The city constantly expands and develops and offers luxury at its finest. Today, Abu Dhabi has some of the best hotels in the world, top class restaurants, stunningly big shopping malls and glittering architecture.
Being located in the Persian Gulf, it is not surprise that Abu Dhabi has an extremely hot weather for the bigger part of the year. If you want to avoid the heat, you should consider visiting Abu Dhabi between November and February. Best months for swimming and sunbathing are March, April and October, while July and August have average temperatures well above 40 C.
Abu Dhabi is a bit more laid-back than its neighbor Dubai. However, with plenty of glamorous clubs, hotels, malls, a Formula 1 Grand Prix track and many more, it quickly emerges as a top destination in the UAE. Like Dubai, Abu Dhabi goes for big things and looks to break all kinds of records when it comes to luxury. The leaning building of Capital Gate is piece of architecture worth seeing, and the Ferrari World will amuse everyone with its fastest roller-coaster on the planet. Large, ultra-modern hotels can be seen on every step, with all of the world`s major hotel chains having hotels here.
Another interesting thing to see in Abu Dhabi is the Saadiyat Island. This island was completely empty and uninhabited up until a few years ago. Today, here you will find plenty of top-quality hotel resorts, nightclubs, beach clubs and bars. It also has fantastic sandy beaches where all the jet-setters go. Saadiyat Island in Abu Dhabi is also a home of the newly developed cultural center called Louvre Abu Dhabi. It is designed by French architects and it resembles the original Louvre Museum in Paris. Another new attraction to follow is the Arab version of Guggenheim Museum, where you can see some of the latest art works.
Besides fancy buildings and luxurious places, Abu Dhabi is also a home of amazing mosques in the Persian Gulf. Most of the mosques are located in the center of the city and are well worth to be seen. Sheikh Zayed Mosque is one of the largest mosques in the world and proudly stands in the middle of Abu Dhabi.
Corniche Road is a very picturesque place, with many family-friendly white sandy beaches and a very nice long walking promenade. By walking on the promenade you will be shocked by the amazing structures built from oil money. The most famous building here is the Emirates Palace Hotel, which offers another level of luxury. There you will see ATM machines that drop golden nuggets or you can sit in the lobby and drink gold-leaf flecked macchiato or cappuccino, if you can afford to buy them. Other things worth seeing are the World Trade Center building, as well as the attractive Heritage Village from where you can enjoy great views on the main road.
