The calm, cool and sophisticated Emirate, Abu Dhabi offers all you could want from a city with the added bonus of a pristine beachfront and vast, beautiful desert.
Abu Dhabi is the capital of the United Arab Emirates and the political powerhouse of the region. Fifty years ago, Abu Dhabi was little more than a fishing village but it has steadily grown into a cosmopolitan metropolis and has recently been declared the world’s wealthiest city. However, its development has been more planned and conservative than neighbouring Dubai and its Arabic heritage is still evident.
If you can drag yourself away from your luxury hotel, there is so much you can do! Why not head into the desert on a camel safari; enjoy a round of golf on one of the world-class courses; visit the Ferrari World indoor theme park; explore Yas Waterworld for an afternoon of fun; go shopping along the Corniche or wildlife-spotting on Sir Bani Yas Island.
The best time to visit is between October - April, when temperatures average 25°C. Overall, the weather in Abu Dhabi is arid sub-tropical with clear blue skies and year round sunshine.
You can combine your luxury holiday to Abu Dhabi with a holiday to the Maldives or the Seychelles with our multi-centre holidays.
