Abu Dhabi Travel Guide
Abu Dhabi is the federal capital and centre of government in the United Arab Emirates. sits off the mainland on an island in the Persian (Arabian) Gulf. It is the largest city of the Emirate of Abu Dhabi and one of the most architecturally modern cities in the world.
Abu Dhabi is the headquarters of numerous oil companies and embassies. Its focus on oil exports and commerce is reflected by the skyline’s modern towers and shopping megacenters 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 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.
On either end of the Corniche, a promenade running along the main beachfront, are Emirates Palace, a landmark luxury resort built in high Arabian style, and Dhow Harbor, anchorage for the namesake boats. The Carpet and Iranian souks provide an old-fashioned bazaar experience, while the World Trade Center Souk offers an updated take. Heritage Village is a mock traditional oasis encampment where workshop stalls sell Arabian crafts and other wares.
Long viewed as a staid bureaucratic outpost entirely lacking in neighboring Dubai‘s pizzazz, things started to change radically in 2004 after long-ruler Sheikh Zayed passed away and his son Sheikh Khalifa took over. In a bid to attract tourism and investment, land sales to foreigners were allowed and restrictions on alcohol were loosened. Since the reforms, Abu Dhabi has since grown into one of the premier cities in the Gulf, rivalling nearby Dubai and Doha. Like Dubai and Doha, foreigners far outnumber Emiratis in Abu Dhabi. As such, despite the fact that Arabic is the official language, English is the de facto lingua franca, and most Emiratis will speak it to communicate with the immigrant workers who work for them.
Homosexuality is illegal throughout the United Arab Emirates with possible resulting penalties of deportation, fines, prison time, or the death sentence.
Several massive projects are also under way. Yas Island hosts Abu Dhabi‘s Formula 1 track, the Ferrari World theme park and Warner Bros. World Abu Dhabi, while the Saadiyat Island cultural zone is under development. Its centerpieces are the Louvre museum, and the Guggenheim museum.
