An Exciting Mix of Old and New

As the capital of the United Arab Emirates and the largest emirate by area, Abu Dhabi is home to the seat of government, the Al Nahyan royal family, and a population of approximately 20% Emirati citizens and 80% expats. But its commitment to local culture and heritage, combined with international influences, is what makes Abu Dhabi an intriguing, exciting, and hospitable mix of new and old.

To see a shining example of the new, visit the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque. With 82 domes, 24-carat gold-gilded chandeliers, and the world's largest hand-knotted carpet, this architectural wonder offers a glimpse into the area’s soul. To learn more about the past, visit Abu Dhabi Heritage Village and be sure to take part in the very modern tradition of taking a selfie with a camel.

When it’s time to beat the desert heat, go for a stroll along the waterfront of Corniche Road to find restaurants and cafés perfect for people watching, not to mention Corniche Beach. And if you crave the cool comfort of air conditioning, shop to your heart’s content at one of the many upscale malls found throughout the city.
