Abu Dhabi, the capital of UAE is a fascination combo of tradition and progression. Abu Dhabi still preserves the Arabian ambiance than any other emirates in UAE. Abu Dhabi lies on a T-shaped island jutting into the Persian Gulf from the central western coast.
The city stands proudly in holding the world’s largest hand-loomed carpet, the faster rollercoaster, the tower with greatest lean and largest cluster of cultural buildings of the 21st century. On the whole, Abu Dhabi is an exciting city where nothing stands still, except perhaps the herons in its mangroves.
For those looking to engage with Gulf culture, Abu Dhabi offers opportunities to understand the UAE’s history through museums, exhibitions, tours, and food. Abu Dhabi is the largest Emirate taking up 80% of the country’s landmass. With a population of just under 1.5 million, Abu Dhabi is the headquarters of numerous oil companies and embassies. It’s the richest of all the Emirates and holds nearly 10% of the world’s known oil supply.
With only 420,000 citizens in the entire emirate, each has an average net worth of USD17 million! The city features large gardens and parks, green boulevards lining all the streets and roads, sophisticated high-rise buildings, international luxury hotel chains and opulent shopping malls. One of the most important architectural landmarks is the Sheikh Zayed Mosque. This is arguably one of the most important architectural treasures of contemporary UAE society—and one of the most opulent in the world.
