What’s There to See in Abu Dhabi?


Since November 2017 a second Louvre opened in Abu Dhabi, after France and the UAE joint forces to create this cultural institution. This museum represents a new direction for Abu Dhabi, as the art world ventures into the contemporary field, but also equally commemorating the city’s international roots.

Ferrari World

Ferarri World is one of the craziest (ferrari themed) amusement parks you can find! Here you can find various rides/attractions/restaurants/shopping, providing fun for the whole family. It’s also home to the fastest rollercoaster in the world (The Formula Rossa), it increases from 0 to 240 km/h in 4.9 seconds, at a height of 52 meters! They even suit you up with a pair of goggles so that your eyes are safe during the ride.. oh, you can also expect to see a great pic of you snapped during the thrill!

Sheik Zayed Mosque 

Sheik Zayed Mosque is an architectural marvel and is one of the world’s largest mosques! In true UAE fashion, the chandeliers are also made of 24 carat gold. You’ll see beautiful pools of water surrounding the mosque, which only magnify its beautiful appearance. Be advised that you will be given a hijab/thawb upon entering to be respectful of the culture and holy place.

Corniche Beach

Just like Dubai, Abu Dhabi has plenty of beautiful beaches, but Corniche is definitely one of the most popular! You’ll find very calm water with limited waves, soft and clean sand as well as several activities/amentities for friends, individuals or families.


Mangrove National Park

Mangrove National Park is the little escape from city life that you’ve been waiting for! The activities are almost endless, you can rent kayaks, canoes boats, etc. and as the instagram video shows below you might be lucky to spot some dolphins, flamingoes and much more wildlife!
