Luxury Travel in Abu Dhabi

By Chris Boyle

With its year-round desert climate, endless sports activities and high-end boutique shopping, Abu Dhabi offers something for everyone. Nabeel Al Zarouni, Country Manager, Abu Dhabi Tourism Authority, talks to Elite Traveler about the best things to do in the city to experience United Arab Emirates’ traditions and culture.

From experiencing the capital’s vast sand desserts, doing water sports such as sailing, kayaking and weight boarding, or topping up on some retail therapy at high-end boutique stores, travelers to Abu Dhabi have an endless array of things to see and do.

Abu Dhabi has the diverse old and the new, for example you can experience the new Abu Dhabi in Abu Dhabi city where you have the Yas Island,” says Al Zarouni. “At the same time you have Al Ain, which is our heritage heartland, and there you can find sites that have been recognized by the UNESCO’s world heritage list.”
