Abu Dhabi – The Invigorating Oasis

United Arab Emirates, Abu Dhabi Guide (B): Abu Dhabi – The Invigorating Oasis

Capital of the United Arab Emirates, Abu Dhabi is a refreshing oasis in the Arabian Desert. Proud owner of multitudes of parks scattered around the city, it is much greener than the touristy Dubai. Covering more than 80% of the total territory of the UAE, Abu Dhabi is the largest of the seven emirates. The Islamic country owes its outstripping growth to the abundant oil and gas reserves that are pumped in the vicinity of the city.

But the capital of the Emirates is much more than oil and sand. In fact, should you desire a break from Dubai’s craze, Abu Dhabi is an amazing location to chill out and visit some remarkable sights only found there.

The lavish Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque, named after the late President of the Emirates, would be the first one. It is the principal mosque in the United Arab Emirates and its beauty, splendour, and grandeur require a new article.

Another must-visit place should you find yourself trotting in Abu Dhabi, is Emirates Palace, a hotel of exquisite design and eye-watering opulence.
