Abu Dhabi - Capital City of United Arab Emirates

Human society started settling in Abu Dhabi in the late 1760s, when the Bani Yas tribe discovered water and built a fort to protect the resource.

From what was just a pearl and fishing village, the later discovery of black liquid to fuel motor engines has seen Abu Dhabi expand into a sprawling capital; making it one of the most modern cities and business centres in the Arab world.

Old Abu Dhabi

The oldest part of Abu Dhabi is the Bateen area, where traditional fishing dhows still deliver their daily catch of prawns and other seafood, just like the old days, from the fishing grounds around the Arabian Gulf.

Unchanged for years, the Bateen Shipyard is worth a visit to see the boat builders continue their ancient crafts in a traditional atmosphere.

Abu Dhabi Tourism

Many visitors to the Emirates still prefer the elegant beach hotels in Dubai but then that makes Abu Dhabi all the more interesting.

Abu Dhabi Attractions

Be sure to visit Qasr al-Hosn, built on the site of the original water well.

Also known as the White Fort, the oldest historical building in Abu Dhabi has been restored several times and adjoins the Abu Dhabi Cultural Foundation.

Abu Dhabi Explorer and City Guide:
'For the new resident, you can't beat this insider's guide to what's happening in the city. It doesn't have all the small shops and hidden gems in it, but it is adequate for those who are trying to find their way around the city as a newcomer.'

Abu Dhabi's Corniche

The 4-mile long Corniche is a landscaped, seafront boulevard and the main thoroughfare of Abu Dhabi. The massive Blue Mosque is also located here.

Lulu Island

Located off the Corniche, work began in 1988 to transform this man-made island into Abu Dhabi's superlative holiday resort area; a recreational paradise with hotels, restaurants, gardens, bird and animal sanctuaries and of course, fun-parks for the children. If the children enjoy themselves today, they might come back to Abu Dhabi as high-spending adults in the future.
