With one of the highest per capita GDP in the world, the emirate of Abu Dhabi is so opulent, it sometimes seems as if gold should grow on trees (it is, amazingly, dispensed by at least one ATM). While most visitors to the United Arab Emirates (UAE) head instead to Abu Dhabi's flashier cousin Dubai, those in the know head here, to the country's more ... Read more
relaxed and historical city. On a T-shaped island in the Arab Sea, you'll be sure to find beaches just about everywhere. Many hotels even have private palm-fringed beaches (hint: splurge for a day pass). Abu Dhabi's shopping and nightlife is good enough for Carrie Bradshaw; Sex and the City 2 was based here. If over-the-top attractions are what you'd like, you're in luck. Go on an overnight luxury desert safari or head out to a Formula 1 racetrack or, if you wait a few years, when highlights will be the newest Guggenheim museum or a sister Louvre museum on the nearby Saadiyat Island. To experience local culture, try the Heritage Village, a vision of the Bedouin lifestyle, or dine at a falafel shack or at one of the many restaurants serving Arab cuisine.

Quezon City

The capital of the United Arab Emirates and the second biggest city of UAE in terms of area and population. It is the seat of the government and a center for industry and commerce. It is about two hours drive from Dubai and is fast becoming as culturally diverse. The rise of many modern skyscrapers and other modern facilities including the recently opened branch of the Louvre Museum makes it a second tourist destination next to Dubai.

I really love Abu Dhabi for business travel. Really would like to go back. It is very westernized and not like what people would think. It's a wonderful place to visit and I highly recommend making the trip to here and Dubai. You won't be disappointed. The food is even great as well. Lots of ethnic choices to try out.

I see Abu Dhabi as Dubai's more relaxed neighbour. It feels like Dubai did 15 years ago and is a great place to visit for a week of peace.

Abu Dhabi, The capital of the United Arab Emirates, is one of the world's most modern cities. Rapid development has seen it transformed from mud huts to skyscrapers in little over half a century.
