The largest of the seven individual emirates and located just 90 minutes drive from Dubai is the ‘Garden City of the Gulf’, Abu Dhabi. This capital city is rich in history and culture.
Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque is one of the largest in the world. Holding up to 40,000 worshippers, its 82 domes, 1000 columns and gold gilded chandeliers make this an architectural wonder.
Catering for all generations and interests, Abu Dhabi lends itself to being a great all round destination. Families will enjoy water, wildlife and theme parks. Sports enthusiasts have options such as deep sea fishing, horse racing and the Yas Marina Grand Prix circuit. Culture vultures along with shoppers simply won’t know what to do first. For the those that just want warmth, sunshine and relaxation, lets not forget the 249 miles of coastline and remote islands where powdery-white sand beaches offer perfect conditions for topping up the tan.
Etihad have direct services from Manchester and London to Abu Dhabi …there has never been a better time to book your city break.
