Things to do in Abu Dhabi
Abu Dhabi is not a tourist destination, but there is whole lot
more to see and do here than shopping or business meetings. More
good news is that many of Abu Dhabi''s quality attractions free.
Travellers should take note that getting around the city by foot is
not much of an option due to the extreme heat and the best time of
year for sightseeing in Abu Dhabi is between October and May.
Famed for its amazing shopping opportunities, many visitors
might choose to scrap any sightseeing and spend their time
wandering the seemingly endless amounts of shopping malls and
districts, but for those who don''t a good place to start is
Corniche, Abu Dhabi''s spectacular waterfront which stretches for
miles. Stroll along the walkway, stop on of the sandy beaches or
take the kids to the playgrounds or go-karting track. The Sheikh
Zayed Mosque is the largest mosque in the United Arab Emirates and
is an interesting cultural attraction for westerners to visit.
Khalifa Park is a must for travellers, especially those with
kids in tow, as it features an aquarium, museum, play parks, a
train and even formal gardens to enjoy some time out under the
shade of a tree. Most of Abu Dhabi''s hotels have their own beaches
and swimming or simply lazing in the sun is a popular pastime for
travellers to Abu Dhabi - but don''t forget the sunscreen!
