Excited to see more? Simply click here and let’s start planning your escape to Abu Dhabi!


This exuberant island is a striking mix of contrasts, ostentatious shopping and palatial hotels sit comfortably alongside religious temples and the burnt orange sands of the Arabian desert. Abu Dhabi has come a long way in the past 50 years, once a small fishing village it's now home to record-breaking rides, futuristic Formula 1 tracks, lavish hotels serving cappuccinos laced with gold and world-class golf.

You could easily spend all your time here exploring the city alone with its astonishing architecture, first-rate dining, and glossy shopping malls. But head offshore and take the opportunity to embark on a serene canoe trip down the tranquil Eastern mangroves, try your hand at water skiing or spend an afternoon scuba diving in shipwrecks.

If you’re bringing the family, head to Yas Island for thrills and spills aplenty. Ride the world’s fastest roller coaster at Ferrari World Abu Dhabi, spend the day at iconic Yas Waterworld, home to 45 exciting rides, slides and attractions, or slow the pace down with a day on the pristine beaches of Saadiyat Island spotting the resident turtles.

Beneath its shiny surface, a glimpse of old Arabia can still be found in the cities historic forts and colourful souks. No visit to Abu Dhabi is complete without taking in the outstanding Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque, the largest in the UAE, and for a taste of authentic Bedouin culture, head out to the desert to enjoy camel rides across the dunes, adrenaline-fuelled sandboarding and a traditional evening feast under the stars.


There is no denying that Abu Dhabi is a fantastic holiday destination on its own, but sitting at the heart of the Middle East, it’s also the perfect stopover should you wish to enhance your escape and enjoy experiencing another country. After a few days in the capital, why not head to the idyllic white sands of the Maldives, Seychelles or Sri Lanka. Or break up the journey to Thailand or Malaysia with a night or two on this lavish island city. Whatever your perfect escape to Abu Dhabi looks like, our experienced Travel Consultants can’t wait to help you create an itinerary as unique as you are.
