Not to be outdone by the popularity of Dubai, the capital of the United Arab Emirates is making its presence known to the world and more people are starting to take notice. Abu Dhabi tours are growing in popularity and showing everyone that there are lots of things to do in the capital of this beautiful Middle Eastern country.
Authentic Emirati Grandness
Many of Abu Dhabi’s tourist attractions may come in the form of modern wonders like massive buildings, malls, and theme parks, but nothing compares to the beauty and grandiosity of the Sheikh Zayed Mosque. Inside, you will find an enormous space that can accommodate over 40,000 worshippers, and also the world’s largest carpet and chandelier—proving that not all world records are held by Dubai.
Get a better view of some of the top Abu Dhabi tourist attractions by taking a stroll down the Corniche, a massive stretch overlooking the bay and perfect for a picnic or just to slow things down. From here, you get a perfect view of one of Abu Dhabi’s most iconic landmarks, the leaning Capital Gate Tower. Settle down for a snack or take pictures by the promenade—the choice is yours when at the Corniche.
Oases of Art in the Middle East
As if the domes, minarets, and overall architecture found in the Grand Mosque weren’t enough, Abu Dhabi is taking it to the next level with the development of Saadiyat Island. This cultural hub is currently under development and will be the site of the Guggenheim Abu Dhabi and the Louvre Abu Dhabi. The latter is set to open later in 2015 and will be the first to bring together the most iconic displays of Western and Eastern art. Although not officially part of Abu Dhabi tours just yet, it is something worth looking forward to.
Incomparable Theme Parks
When in Abu Dhabi, things to do involve more than just art and culture. After soaking up the art, music, and literature, why not actually get soaked? Yas Waterworld in Yas Island is constantly listed as one of the world’s best waterparks and is the perfect place to cool off after a long day under the hot Abu Dhabi sun.
If lazy rivers and steady waves are not quite your thing, then head on over to Ferrari World to satisfy your need for speed. With 86,000 square meters of roller coasters, rides, and fast cars, the world’s largest indoor theme park is an iconic city landmark and one of the top Abu Dhabi tourist attractions.
