One of the best attractions in Abu Dhabi, the Sheikh Zayed Mosque is a beautiful cultural landmark with exquisite architecture and detail. The mosque has the capacity to host 40,000 worshipers at a time, making it one of the largest mosques in the world, and an impressive site to behold. Also here, you will find the world's largest hand-knotted carpet and chandeliers.
Famous for being one of the oldest stone buildings in the city of Abu Dhabi, Qasr Al Hosn is a monumental landmark and a beautiful historic site for all visitors to admire in person. Also known as the Old Fort, it dates back to the 1760s. The historical structure teaches its guests all about the culture and traditions of Abu Dhabi.
A beautiful mall with a wonderful view, the Marina Mall is a popular touristic shopping destination, filled with both local and international luxury brands. And the fun doesn't stop with shopping: This mall also features an ice rink, a cinema, a bowling alley, and beautiful musical fountains, meaning there's plenty to keep everyone happy. The undisputed highlight, however, is a 100 meter-tall platform that gives you a beautiful view of the city.
A great place to spend a few hours with family or friends, the Abu Dhabi Corniche has lots to do along its stretch of eight kilometers. Take a walk to enjoy the view, let the kids explore the children's play area, cycle along the special pathway, or simply laze on the wonderful beach area. There is also a good number of cafes and restaurants to choose from.
An iconic attraction and a landmark building in Abu Dhabi, the Emirates Palace may be a hotel, but visitors to the city shouldn't leave without seeing this monumental structure in person. Emirates Palace is beautifully constructed and —known for being the city's 7-star hotel — is also the epitome of luxury. A great place to dine and experience true Arabian culture.
If you are a car lover, this is the place for you. Emirates National Auto Museum houses approximately 200 cars, all of which belong to His Highness Sheikh Hamad Bin Hamdan Al Nahyan, a member of the royal family of the UAE. The collection features American-made cars, four wheelers, and the world's largest truck.
If you love cars, racing, or any other motor sport, then you will love the Yas Marina Circuit. Here you get to experience the same adrenaline rush that F1 racers feel when they zoom around the tarmac. Sign up for one of the various packages to fulfill your own need for speed!
The first Ferrari based theme park in the world, Ferrari World is an amazing place to enjoy with your friends or family, and experience the fun of everything Ferrari! (It is also the largest indoor theme park in the world!) You'll learn a lot about the brand, the car mechanics, and the history of the company. Most importantly, however, you'll get to experience the fastest roller coaster in the world here which is super awesome!
One of the best malls in the city, Yas Mall is the biggest in the capital and the second largest in the UAE. A huge variety of international and national brands can be found here, plus plenty of entertainment options including the biggest cinema in the city. You won't go hungry either, with over 60 eateries to tempt your taste buds. Shopaholics heaven, Yas Mall is a must-visit.
Yas Waterworld is one of the best places to visit in Abu Dhabi, especially if you love water parks. With 42 rides and slides to choose from, the variety is endless, and several thrilling attractions will keep adrenaline fans happy.

Great food, good ambiance and exceptional service are what Lemon Tree is known for. They serve a mix of delicious Italian, French, and Spanish cuisine, as well as hosting special theme nights.

A beautiful way to learn about and experience the history of Abu Dhabi and the UAE, the Al Ain National Museum is a fun destination for family and friends alike.

For all those sports fans, Al Forsan International Sports Resort is great place to enjoy a very active line-up. Here you can experience motor sports such as karting and off-roading, paintball, and several forms of shooting — including archery or rifle and handgun ranges — plus horse riding, water sports, and more.
If you love nature and animals, you will love the Emirates Park Zoo. Home to 1,700 beautiful animals, this place is a lot of fun for all ages. There are two separate areas: 'Predators' and 'Wild Animals,' each featuring some rare and beautiful animals. Among them you will find white tigers, Siberian bears, zebras, and cheetahs.
Since Abu Dhabi is a warm city, the Murjan Splash Park is always a welcome place for you to cool down with friends or family. It's lots of fun for kids especially, since many rides are designed for children aged 12 and under. They also have a super fun lazy river which is very relaxing for the grown-ups, and a great way to soak up the sun while cooling down at the same time!
A great restaurant with perhaps the best buffet in the city, Oceana is located in the Hilton Capital Grand Abu Dhabi. The restaurant offers truly amazing international cuisine, the service is great, and the ambiance and decor are second to none. It's a must for all foodies!
