Emerging from the desert’s sands like a mirage, Abu Dhabi's bold, brash and brilliant skyline continues to reach new heights. The extravagance on show can be dizzying at times, but it’s counterpointed by authentic history and culture, and majestic religious statements. You’ll shrink before the scale of the 50 exquisite, pearl-white domes of the Sheikh Zayed Mosque, which is the UAE's largest and most revered religious space. View more

A healthy pearl trade, and strategic location, brought prosperity in the 19th century, before the discovery of rich oil reserves propelled the city giddily skywards in the latter half of the 20th century. Nowadays, palatial hotels tower above dazzling ocean and white sands, while ever-reliable weather and remarkable extravagances, make Abu Dhabi a location of unbridled opulence and intrigue. The city's cultural scene is also burgeoning, with a stunning Louvre outpost recently opening for business. Find your bearings by ascending 300 metres to the heights of the Etihad Towers' viewing platform - where you can butter scones while enjoying a 'high tea' in every sense. The relentlessly glorious weather makes the coral-blue sea's sparkle ever-tempting, and at Saadiyat Public Beach you’ll find clear blue waves lapping soft, sugar-white sand. Wade out to enjoy bath-like temperatures of 30 degrees. The Corniche, meanwhile, is a sweeping coastal walkway, stretching for eight kilometres and offering rich views of the coral-blue ocean back-dropped by jagged skyscrapers.

Discover the scenic beauty and landmarks of Abu Dhabi during this picturesque, half-day sightseeing tour.


Grand Mosque

Depart the pier for the approximately 30-minute drive to the Grand Mosque. The majestic Sheikh Zayed Bin Sultan Al Nahyan Mosque is probably the most imposing religious and national landmark in Abu Dhabi to date. It is also arguably one of the most important architectural treasures of contemporary UAE society - and one of the most beautiful in the world - initiated no less by the late president HH Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan, who is fondly thought of as the father of UAE.


Corniche and City Drive

Next, drive along the spectacular Corniche and around the city of Abu Dhabi, known as the 'Manhattan of the Gulf' due to its profusion of ultra-modern skyscrapers, gleaming white mosques and elegant high-rise apartments. After a photo stop at the tip of the breakwater for a superb view of the city's magnificent skyline, proceed to Yas Island.


Yas Island and Heritage Village

Your drive continues past Yas Island, a 9.75 square-mile (25 square-km) island strategically located between the coast and city of Abu Dhabi and Dubai, with a range of world-class hotels, theme parks, golf courses, mega malls, apartments and villas, and much more. Apart from this, Yas Island hosts the venue for the F1 circuit of Abu Dhabi.

Louvere Abu Dhabi & Qasar Al Hosn Visit

1.Louvre Abu Dhabi and Qasr Al Hosn :-


Louvre Abu Dhabi: - The iconic Louvre Abu Dhabi is the first universal museum in the Arab World that translates the spirit of openness of cultures. As one of the premier cultural institutions located in the heart of the Saadiyat Cultural District, the art-lovers dream displays the works of historical, cultural and sociological significance from ancient times to the contemporary era. Designed by Pritzker-prize winning architect Jean Nouvel, the Louvre Abu Dhabi encompasses 9,200 sq. m of galleries including the Permanent Gallery and a Temporary Gallery that is enriched by loans from many notable French museums including Musee du Louvre, Musee d'Orsay, and Centre Pompidou. Recreating parts of UAE's integral cultural elements, Nouvel designed a falaj-inspired water system running through the museum, inspired by ancient Arabian engineering whilst the orderly lace dome borrows inspiration from the interlaced palm leaves traditionally used as roofing material in many parts of the country that results in an enchanting play of light. The juxtaposition of different civilizations in the same spaces, the Louvre Abu Dhabi illustrates similarities and exchanges from the shared human experience going beyond geography, nationality, and history.


Qasr Al Hosn:- Qasr Al Hosn Is the oldest and most significant building in Abu Dhabi, holding the city's first permanent structure; the watchtower. Built around the 1790's, the commanding structure overlooked the costal trade routes and protected the growing settlement established on the island. Qasr Al Hosn comprises of two major iconic buildings: the Inner Fort (originally constructed in 1795) and the Outer Palace (1939-45). Over the centuries, it has been home to the ruling family, the seat of government, a consultative council and a national archive; it now stands as the nation's living memorial and the narrator of Abu Dhabi's history. Transformed into a museum in 2018 following more than eleven years of intensive conservation and restoration work, Qasr Al Hosn is a national monument that encapsulates the development of Abu Dhabi from a settlement reliant on fishing and pearling in the 18th century, to a modern, global metropolis, with displays of artefacts and archival materials dating back to as far as 6000 BC.
