About Abu Dhabi

Abu Dhabi is the capital of the United Arab Emirates and the country's largest emirate with over 1.6 million residents. The emirate is a blend of diversity: from the contemporary chic of downtown Abu Dhabi to the timeless Bedouin traditions of the surrounding mountains, deserts and the sandy beaches.

With an ultra-modern infrastructure which befits its status as the economic and political hub of the UAE, Abu Dhabi perfectly combines its role as a business and tourist destination. From shopping in luxury malls to bartering in traditional souqs; from enjoying the miles of golden beaches, to relaxing in one of the city's many public parks; from the fine dining of the city's 5-star restaurants to the unique pleasure of the desert safari - the options really are endless.
