Abu Dhabi is certainly no stranger to sports fans. Throughout the year, the capital of the United Arab Emirates welcomes the world to an incredible assortment of international sporting events.
From tennis, to Formula One to the Volvo Ocean Race – Abu Dhabi has it all.
But of course it’s not all about sport as Abu Dhabi also has plenty of other amazing encounters and activities on offer.
To experience the local culture, a visit to the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque is a must. This spectacular structure is the largest mosque in the UAE, able to accommodate up to 40,000 worshippers.
Incredible architecture, beautiful beaches, magnificent dunes and ancient forts also provide visitors with a fascinating offering while for the adrenaline junkies, there’s always the world’s fastest roller-coaster.
