UAE Calling; The Luxuries Of Abu Dhabi

Written By Hajra Khatoon, Travel Story

After Turkey ; off to another famous Arab City!

Having lived in Abu Dhabi for over twenty years now, I couldn’t be anymore in love with the city. So what makes it interesting even after so, so many years! Many things! So let me dissect Abu Dhabi today and let me convince to book your tickets right away!

WHERE IS THIS?

Close to its famous “cousin” Dubai; Abu Dhabi is the capital of United Arab Emirates. Though the city is located mostly on an island; it has been connected to the mainland through a network of bridges and continues to expand.

WHY YOU SHOULD BE HERE?

Abu Dhabi is famous for too many things. Being one of the largest oil manufacturers in the world; the city is now also known for its huge developments in the tourism sector which makes it one of the favorite with holiday goers.  Here are some of the famous attractions of the lovely city:

•    Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque - Named after the founder of UAE, HH Sheikh Zayed Bin Sultan Al Nahyan, the majestic Mosque is probably a work of art in itself. The mosque has a capacity of about 40,000 worshipers and is looked upon as one of the most magnificent architectural wonders in the world. Coveted as the largest mosque in the country, the Grand Mosque will leave you stunned.




•    Yas Marina Island - An artificial island holding the Yas Island Circuit, the host for the Formula One Grand Prix since 2009, the Yas Island has become one of the hottest tourist spots. It also contains the Ferrari World- the world’s largest indoor theme park that tells the story of Ferrari in all its glory. Also it features amusement rides and games. The World’s Fastest Roller Coaster - Formula Rossa is also there at the Ferrari world with a speed of 240 km/hr, you can get a feel of what 4.8 Gs is like! Speed buffs, pack your bags!


•    The Emirates Palace Hotel - one of the most magnificent luxury hotels in the country. Though a little hard on the pocket (this hotel actually offers the one million dollar tailor made suite holiday - the most expensive holiday) the hotel could be visited for tourism reason purely.
•    Gardens and Parks - For those of you in love with the outside and want to enjoy a peaceful lazy vacation , Abu Dhabi has over 2000 well maintained gardens and parks.
•    The city offers a host of services - desert safaris for exploring the deserts and having a feel of what it is like, helicopter tours for a birds eye view of the city and bus tours running throughout the day. Boat rides on the Marina are a perfect way to end the day.

BEST TIME TO VISIT

Abu Dhabi is a hot place; experiencing extremely high temperatures during the summers coupled with high humidity, the best time to visit has to be between November and March. Though the country does experience fogs during this time of the year, most of the days are pleasant otherwise.

HARD ON THE POCKET?

Abu Dhabi has been regarded as the 67th most expensive city in the world. However, keeping in mind that public transport and air tickets are affordable, the place is worth every penny spent. Also, most of the parks and beaches have free access, the bus rides around the city are cheaply priced and overall offer a wonderful experience.

There really are no reasons as not to visiting the city. With its amazing architecture, the variety of cuisines available, the beaches, parks and the luxury sightseeing, Abu Dhabi makes for the perfect holiday spot.
