Need Some Inspiration? Abu Dhabi Destination Profile
One of Travel Trolley’s most exciting destinations at the moment is Abu Dhabi. A popular tourist hub, this ultra modern coastal city is capital of the UAE, and is known for it’s sleek skyscrapers, shopping mega-centres, and palacial hotels. This is a city that loves to break world records; here you’ll find the world’s highest high tea, the fastest rollercoaster, and the largest Persian carpet. The famous Hyatt Capital Gate Tower has the biggest lean in the world; at an 18 degree slant, this miracle of construction looks like it might topple at any minute. Welcome to Abu Dhabi, where the enormous, record-breaking, and outright insane are simply par for the course.
What to Do: The best things to do in Abu Dhabi include the white marble Sheikh Zayed Mosque, home of the world’s largest hand loomed Persian carpet, and the Qasr al-Hosn – an 18th century palace and fort. Racing fans should visit the Yas Island Marina Circuit and the famous Ferrari World Abu Dhabi – which is also home to the world’s fastest rollercoaster, Formula Rossa. Yas Waterworld is an unmissable attraction, especially for families. And then there are the many malls, the incredible skyscrapers and other feats of architectural engineering, the stunning marina, and the many nearby islands such as Al Reem, Yas, and Saadiyat.
When to Visit: Winter (November to April) is high season in Abu Dhabi, when the days are sunny but milder than the rest of the year. However, hotels are more expensive and may be booked up quickly at this time of year. Summertime (May to September) is hot and humid, with temperatures over 40 degrees, but this is also the best time to get some great deals on Abu Dhabi’s hotels.
Where to Stay: Abu Dhabi is known for it’s exceptional luxury hotels. Some are in skyscrapers, like the aforementioned Hyatt Capital Gate Tower or the famous Jumeirah at Etihad Towers. For those who prefer to stay closer to the ground, though, there are some incredible five star resorts in Abu Dhabi, like ST Regis Saadiyat Island Resort or Antara’s Eastern Mangroves Hotel & Spa. Search Abu Dhabi hotels on Travel Trolley now for some inspiration.
