Abu Dhabi is a superlative destination in every way, and one that prides itself on offering the best to travelers!
The fine sand of the desert and the warm sea breeze from the Persian Gulf are a wonderful invitation to a trip full of charms in the exotic resorts of the City-State.
An ancient Arab legend says that lush Abu Dhabi was found when an antelope took a tribe to a source of fresh water, on an island that had only a few tents and a fort.
Over the years and the discovery of oil there, this simple place has become the modern and cosmopolitan city of Abu Dhabi, the skyscraper-rich capital of the United Arab Emirates.
Abu Dhabi is synonymous with modernity, a truly unique destination in the world. A rich culture, with ancient traditions that harbor authentic experiences, such as visiting the largest mosque in the world, the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque.
This mosque has a capacity for up to 40,000 people and was build in marble, gold and silver. It has seven chandeliers – fully adorned in Swarovski crystal, 80 domes, more than 1,000 columns, gold plated chandeliers and the largest handmade rug in the world.
Ferrari World is worth a visit, as it is the largest indoor theme park in the world, and for speed enthusiasts, it has the fastest roller coaster.
