Abu Dhabi Day Trip from Dubai

Why should you visit Abu Dhabi?

Dubai may be the first thing that comes to mind when you hear about the United Arab Emirates, but this region has plenty more to offer. In fact, right next door lies the capital city of Abu Dhabi, which boasts an abundance of cultural landmarks, fantastic activities, and mind-blowing architecture.

While Dubai is well-known for its impressive skyline, Abu Dhabi is home to some truly awe-inspiring architectural wonders. Trust us, you will be left in awe when you see the coin-shaped Aldar Headquarters and the Capital Gate – an iconic tower that resembles the Leaning Tower of Pisa in Italy. Abu Dhabi’s charm lies in its perfect blend of modern and traditional architecture alongside cultural sites such as the Etihad Towers, Louvre Museum, Heritage Village, and the iconic Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque. During your visit to Abu Dhabi, you will also have an opportunity to take a ride on the world’s fastest roller coaster at Ferrari World and see the mesmerizing Saadiyat Island and Yas Island.

With so many world-renowned tourist attractions to offer, Abu Dhabi is a truly irresistible destination for all travelers!

When is the best time to visit Abu Dhabi?

For an enjoyable visit to Abu Dhabi, we recommend planning your trip during the springtime, specifically between April and May, or during the late summer months.

During that time of the year, there are fewer crowds, pleasant weather, and reasonable hotel rates.

However, if you plan on visiting Abu Dhabi during the summer, you should know that temperatures remain exceedingly high. So, staying hydrated and avoiding sightseeing excursions during the scorching midday hours is very important.
