Abu Dhabi is a genuine leisure haven, with attractions for every taste - a destination that intrigues, captivates and invites you to discover more. An emirate of contrasts, Abu Dhabi offers diverse visitor experiences. Cruise our waters in a traditional pearling boat or make a splash in a futuristic water park, explore the city in an open top double-decker bus or enjoy the peace and tranquility of a stroll through Al Ain's cooling oasis, play golf on a championship-standard course or take in the speed of the world’s fastest roller-coaster.

Abu Dhabi is strategically placed at the heart of one of the world's most rapidly advancing regions and is easily accessible from key business centres. Highly competitive, imaginative and world-class business tourism and meetings facilities make Abu Dhabi a destination for large-scale international conventions and association events.

Hallmarked by a strong, stakeholder programme, Abu Dhabi’s tourism partners are ready to more than live up to Travel Weekly UK’s naming of the destination as ‘arguably one of the world’s most exciting new tourism hotspots.’ And while you will find much new to excite you about the destination​, you will still be welcomed with the renowned Arabian hospitality and a willingness to engage you with a centuries-old heritage that is still in evidence today.
