An exciting mix of new & old

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.

Be sure to visit Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque: With 82 domes, 24-carat gold-gilded chandeliers, and the world's largest hand-knotted carpet, it’s a stunning place of worship.

Go for a stroll along the waterfront of Corniche Road—which features separate pedestrian and bike paths, restaurants and cafés, and Corniche Beach—enjoy a desert Jeep safari, or shop to your hearts’ content at the many upscale malls and local souks throughout the city.
