With only 420,000 citizens in the entire emirate, each has an average net worth of $17 million, and Abu Dhabi has been described by CNN as "the richest city in the world". The city features large gardens and parks, green boulevards lining all the streets and roads, sophisticated high–rise buildings, international luxury hotel chains and opulent shopping malls.

Year–round sunshine, pristine beaches, spectacular sand dunes and pulsating cosmopolitan lifestyle await every guest in Abu Dhabi. These, combined with distinctive Arabian hospitality, mystique and world–class infrastructure make Abu Dhabi an enchanting destination for experienced and novice travellers.

The emirate hosts the United Arab Emirates' capital Abu Dhabi city. This island capital is characterised by its signature Corniche, which fronts the amazing turquoise waters of the Arabian Gulf.

Whatever you choose to do, you will meet with a welcome which has been extended to travellers throughout the ages.

Things to See and Do

For family fun at a theme park, world class entertainment on stage, a stroll through Yas Marina, dining at Yas Plaza hotels or high speed thrills on the racetrack. Whether you're on holiday or on business, there's something for everyone to explore at Yas Island.

A place for world entertainment – Flash Forum hosts a year–round programme of live events on Yas Island including headline international concerts.

Designed for all ages, backgrounds and tastes, Yas Island's entertainment programme makes it the ultimate party weekend destination with A–list concerts, free parties, events and activities during the Yas Island Show Weekends.

A place for indulgence – The five–star Yas Hotel is the ultimate in luxury with the stunning ESPA spa, a serene, indoor infinity pool or a sun–soaked, outdoor deck pool and an exquisite range of dining and entertainment options. This is the only hotel in the world to be half on land, and half on water, designed with the inspiration of high performance cars and yachts, and built over the Formula 1 circuit. This is where racing and yachting action is at your doorstep!

A place for the thrill seeker – If you've ever wanted to experience the thrills of high speed motor racing, then the Yas Marina Circuit is the place for you. The home of the Formula 1 Etihad Airways Abu Dhabi Grand Prix and other international events, the track is also the place for your personal driving and passenger experience. You can get behind the wheel in high speed race cars and karts, or sit as a passenger in a modified Formula 1 car reaching speeds of up to 300 kmh. At a slower pace, you can take a tour of the venue and lap up the history of Grand Prix racing.

Alongside the track, the Ferrari World Abu Dhabi theme park the largest indoor theme park in the world – is the place to experience what a Ferrari–charged adrenaline kick feels like at 240 kilometres an hour! It features more than 20 rides, including the Formula Rossa – the fastest roller coaster on the planet.


Shopping is something of a national pastime in Abu Dhabi, perhaps because it's so diverse everything from ultra–modern malls with the latest brands, to small, souk–like outlets where you can buy traditional perfumes, handicrafts, spices and carpets. You can spend thousands of dollars on a bejewelled designer watch, or pick up a basic timepiece in a supermarket. You can splash out on an haute–couture designer outfit or buy fabric and have a local tailor make up your very own creation for a bargain price. You can buy a treasured Arabian antique, or a technology–busting super–modern home entertainment system. Prices are often excellent in comparison to those abroad, especially for carpets, textiles and gold. If you are a good bargainer, you can get even better deals. Shops open at around 10am – 10pm or later on weekends. Although most malls work straight through, some independent shops close for an extended lunch break, usually from 1pm – 4pm. Hours usually change during Ramadan and Eid, with many shops closing for the afternoon and reopening from 7pm until midnight or later.


Notwithstanding its cosmopolitan, multicultural nature and business orientation, Abu Dhabi city retains much of the quiet charm that characterizes a typical Arabic city at night. Nightlife in Abu Dhabi can be as quiet and refreshing as a stroll by the corniche or in a park in the cooler seasons or as active as watching a rock band performance in a pub or dancing in a night club in one of Abu Dhabi's five or four–star hotels. Between the two extremes nightlife in Abu Dhabi has much to offer to all age groups, tastes and interests families and single visitors alike. An evening out can be a culinary treat from a wide range of oriental and international cuisines, a cultural event such as a play, a lecture, a concert or an art exhibition, or it can simply be a show at a movie theatre or an evening at gaming centre or an Arabic coffee shop where the traditional shisha (hookah or hubbly–bubbly) is served. Shopping malls, which remain open till 22:00 or 23:00, are a main attraction for many of Abu Dhabi residents and visitors, not only for the rich shopping experience or the equally exciting window–shopping but for the variety of outlets and services found in these malls.
