Home to pristine beaches, world-class theme parks and luxurious hotels, Abu Dhabi has something for everyone! Unwind on a private island paradise, kayak through a serene mangrove forest, unravel history at ancient forts and get off the beaten path amidst Abu Dhabi's desert dunes.
Culture lovers are spoiled for choice. The Louvre Abu Dhabi, the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque, Qasr Al Watan Presidential Palace and the Qasr Al Hosn fort are unmissable beauties. Just an hour and a half’s drive away is the oasis town of Al Ain and its 11 UNESCO world heritage sites as well as the Liwa oasis with its fort trail.
There’s so much more! The biggest emirate in the United Arab Emirates, the largest unbroken expanse of sand in the world, skyscrapers with impressive dimensions and looks, gold leaf cappuccino at Emirates Palace, the largest handwoven carpet in the world, the striking Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque... And the only hotel in the world straddling a Formula 1 track
Feel the excitement as you come face to face with the greatest athletes.
If you are visiting a neighbouring country, you can't miss this chance to continue your sporting adventure in Abu Dhabi. Whether you are looking to recover from the ride or just don't want the experience to end, you will fall head over heels for the possibilities offered by this emirate. In November 2022, a major event for all fans of competition and speed is set to take place. After a year away, the Formula 1 Etihad Airways Abu Dhabi Grand Prix is back. For four days, the best drivers will compete in this final phase of the world championship. Witness great entertainment on the circuit and an all-round experience in the Yas Island oasis.
Between modernity and traditions
Skyscrapers, amusement parks and ultra modern museums in the city with fantastic architecture meet hospitality and Bedouin traditions of the desert, oases, historic forts, falconry shows and traditional dances. The Ferraris at Ferrari World Abu Dhabi, Yas Marina Circuit race cars and seaplanes rub shoulders with camels in the desert and dhows (traditional boats) for pearl fishing. Worlds coexist with an ancestral and authentic culture inherited from the desert.
