Abu Dhabi is more than just beautiful beaches and sparkling skyscrapers. Explore the capital and discover delicious local delicacies, exhilarating theme parks and historical sights.

Cultural icon

Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque is a must-see. This is one of the world’s largest mosques, with a capacity for an astonishing 40,000 worshippers. It features 82 domes, over 1,000 columns, 24-carat gold gilded chandeliers and the world's largest hand-knotted carpet. One of the best times to visit is just before sunset when the natural light will illuminate this architectural work with golden hues.

Shopping is something of a national pastime, perhaps because it’s so diverse: everything from ultra-modern malls with the latest brands, to small, souk-like outlets where visitors can buy traditional perfumes, handicrafts and spices.
