Abu Dhabi, the capital of the United Arab Emirates, sits off the mainland on an island in the Persian (Arabian) Gulf. Its focus on oil exports and commerce is reflected by the skyline’s modern towers and shopping mega centers such as Abu Dhabi and Marina malls. Beneath white-marble domes, the vast Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque features an immense Persian carpet, crystal chandeliers and capacity for 41,000 worshipers.
The Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque and Louvre Abu Dhabi are the major tourist attractions, though, with kayaking trips amid the Eastern Mangroves and the desert dune landscapes of Liwa Oasis within day-tripping distance, there are plenty of adventures and things to do on the city’s doorstep.
