You’re all about glitz and glam. When you wake up on the weekend, you say, “Skip the mimosas; just pass the bubbly”. When it comes to holiday-making, if there’s gilt architecture, you’re there. And ocean views? Gotta have ’em.
If you can get behind any of this, then you’ll definitely want to get in on a holiday in Abu Dhabi. As the capital of the United Arab Emirates, this seaside city has luxury down to an art. Visit golden-domed mosques, shop like royalty and work on the perfect suntan on the banks of the Persian Gulf. Oh, and the food alone is worth an intercontinental trip—you’ll fall in love with the falafel—so book some gorgeous Abu Dhabi package deals and get outta here! Things to Do in Abu Dhabi
Your Abu Dhabi holiday will have it all—desert views, island vibes and luxey urban activities. Much of the area is walkable, but if you want to sit behind the wheel of one of lastminute.com.au’s luxey Abu Dhabi car hire options, you’re just a click away.
Start your adventure at the Observation Deck a 300 in the Etihad Towers. From that vantage point, you’ll be ridiculously close to Corniche Beach, so don’t forget your sunnies. Looking for quieter currents? Splash around at Saadiyat Public Beach on Saadiyat Island. While you’re on that side of the city, join a workshop or browse the exhibitions at Manarat al Saadiyat, an interactive cultural centre.
Next, spend an arvo at Ferrari World Abu Dhabi, where you can feed your need for speed with wild rides and classic cars. Abu Dhabi holidays aren’t all sand and high speeds, though. Take a quiet moment to check out the gorgeous architecture and artistry at Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque before diving into the shopping scene. Shopping, Dining & Nightlife
If you don’t want to leave the beach behind for even a second, you don’t have to. There are plenty of high-end shops along The Corniche—as if Abu Dhabi would have any other kind of shop! If you want to wander through a more traditional market scene—called a “souk” in Arabic—fill your bags with spices, tapestries and sip strong-arse Arabic coffee at Souk Al Zafrana.
Speaking of strong brews, get used to caffeine in high doses, because the UAE is all about tea and coffee. Nosh on tabbouleh (a popular parsley and grain salad) and falafel (savoury fried chickpea balls), hummus and lots of shawarma. Restaurants almost smother the waterfront neighbour Zone 1 like olive oil. Dig in!
In Abu Dhabi, the wilder side of nightlife caters to expats and travellers, so if you’re looking for an extra joyful happy hour and a club scene that won’t quit, look to hotel bars and dance clubs near shopping malls. If you want to chill out Emirati-style, find a quiet restaurant with lots of locals and pass the hookah late into the night! What’s Next?
