What You Can Expect on a Holiday to Abu Dhabi
Abu Dhabi is a fantastic all-inclusive holiday destination that rivals Europe, not only on price but the quality of the hotels, beaches, cuisine and attractions too! Whether you are travelling as a family looking for relaxation and entertainment, a couple craving a care-free break or a group of friends looking forward to a break from everyday life, an Abu Dhabi holiday will suit you perfectly. As the capital of the United Arab Emirates, Abu Dhabi is a feast for the eyes with its modern skyline featuring towering buildings next to Islamic architecture – a fascinating contrast that makes great photos, along with sprawling shopping malls or more traditional souks to satisfy even the most seasoned shoppers. Featuring a stunning marina and the diversity of contemporary areas alongside historical towns and even scenic sandy beaches, Abu Dhabi holidays offer incredible value for money and it is only an hour and a half drive from Dubai if you want a day out to explore there.
What to See and Do on Your Abu Dhabi Holiday
A comfortable sun lounger, delicious cold drink in hand, the breeze lightly cooling you down after a refreshing dip in the calm sea, waiting for a sumptuous lunch to be served… if this is your idea of the perfect day on holiday, Abu Dhabi will not disappoint. What about a trip to one of the many modern malls to literally shop ‘til you drop into a chair in one of the city’s numerous 5-star restaurants to indulge in food fit for a king (or queen!)? If you fancy a bit of adventure you can visit the Ferrari World theme park, visit the water world on Yas Island or race over sand dunes on a dune buggy.
This is just the tip of the proverbial iceberg when it comes to what one can do while on holiday in Abu Dhabi. Similar in some ways to popular Dubai, but more calm and as easily accessible, Abu Dhabi is an excellent destination for affordable beach getaways that boast a quality level superior to Europe while still offering the culture and interest along with the option to visit Dubai which is close enough for exciting day trips. Abu Dhabi is also a great holiday destination for sporting events like F1 and golf.
