Abu Dhabi

Take a trip to Abu Dhabi to discover a modern metropolis built on a strip of land jutting out into the Persian Gulf.
Start off your visit on the 2nd (Wed): admire the striking features of Etihad Towers, then don't miss a visit to Observation Deck at 300, then admire the landmark architecture of Qasr Al Watan, and finally steep yourself in history at Qasr Al Hosn. On the 3rd (Thu), you'll have a packed day of sightseeing: take a tour by water with Boat Tours & Water Sports, tour the pleasant surroundings at Corniche Beach, and then take in the spiritual surroundings of Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque.

Though most people associate United Arab Emirates only with Dubai, nicknamed the "City of Gold," the federation of seven emirates boats a surprisingly rich historical and cultural heritage and provides a good starting point for visitors interested in discovering the Middle East. A trip to United Arab Emirates reveals a modern nation with a dynamic atmosphere and a landscape that quickly changes from futuristic cities to remote deserts, mysteriously silent places where only the shifting sand dunes mark the passage of time. Add the eastern coastline to your United Arab Emirates itinerary to find a string of outstanding beaches and some of the finest diving and snorkeling opportunities in the region.
