Abu Dhabi Corniche is where you’ll get a real taste of the city. Take in the views of the impressive skyline as you walk or cycle along the 8km stretch of sparkling coastline. Sunset here is where you'll really feel the magic of Abu Dhabi.

Louvre Abu Dhabi


Louvre Abu Dhabi entwines culture and history, showcasing artworks from throughout the ages. You can even kayak around the surreal steel dome of the museum, seemingly floating on the water beneath.

Sensational shopping

Browse high-end and highstreet shops at one of the decadent malls scattered throughout the city. For a more traditional shopping experience, head to the Souk, World trade Center, where you'll find local handicrafts, spices and jewellery.

Have an adventure

Head out to the Empty Quarter, the largest uninterrupted area of desert in the world, and ride the dunes in a 4x4. In the luscious mangrove forests that line the coast, grab a kayak and see turtles, crabs and flamingos in their natural habitat.

Dining and nightlife

There’s no doubt that Abu Dhabi is a city for foodies, from lively daytime brunches to street-food-inspired bars. Choose modern Japanese fare at Zuma on Al Maryah Island, get a taste of local Arabic dishes or even dine under the stars in the desert.

Time to unwind
