One of the seven sovereign sheikhdoms that complete the United Arab Emirates, Abu Dhabi is the region's cultural heart, capital and centre of government.

Effortlessly contrasting modern architecture with Arabic tradition, the Garden City of the Gulf is a modern metropolis on an island graced with parks, green boulevards and verdant gardens.

Only 40 years ago Abu Dhabi was a sleepy fishing village, now largely thanks to its oil wealth it's one of the world's richest cities and an ever popular tourist destination.
