5 Things To Do In Abu Dhabi

One of the lesser known facts about Abu Dhabi is that apart from being the Capital of the United Arab Emirates, it also houses federal Government offices, is the seat of the UAE Government, home to the President of UAE & his Royal Emiri family. Abu Dhabi still remains the lesser known cousin of Dubai but there are a ton of things to do in Abu Dhabi & it's actually just as much fun as it's fancy cousin, Dubai! I put together a list of the Top 5 Things To Do in Abu Dhabi. Hope you enjoy them:

1) Ferrari World
This world famous amusement park located on the man made, Yas Island is a complete tourist spot. With the largest space frame structure & the world's fastest roller coaster, the Formula Rossa, it sure is a hit with the tourists! 

2) Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque
This beauty draws most of the tourists that visit Abu Dhabi owing to its beautiful structure made from marbles from the different parts of the world & has four Minarets. Its the largest mosiac structure in the world is is such a peaceful spot! Be careful about your attire as they are strict about it but you can wear clothes that cover your arms, legs & head and you're good to go. Clearly I clicked the most of my pictures here! ;)

3) Bab Al Qasr Hotel & Emirates Palace Hotel
The citizens of Abu Dhabi are considered to be wealthy and this is well reflected in the architecture all around the city. From tall rises to similar looking building modeled on the lines of the Louvre, Kuala Lumpur Towers etc are a must see!

4) Abu Dhabi Corniche & Heritage Village
Corniche is walkway on the beach front with the views of the sea as well as Abu Dhabi's skyline. Settle yourself on one of the benches & it's just fun to people-watch! Heritage Village is sort of like a museum where the traditional oasis village life of UAE has been recreated depicting the Bedouin lifestyle. Highly recommend the restaurant inside as the food was expensive but delicious!

5) Abu Dhabi Desert Safari
One thing you really cannot miss out on is the desert safari in Abu Dhabi. It's a fabulous experience. They have various traditional dance performances along with a buffet spread of local dishes. I didn't go for the safari in Abu Dhabi as I already did it in Dubai but I did visit it during sunset & the sight was breathtaking!

This marked the end of my trip to Abu Dhabi & it was such a lovely experience!
