So, let’s get down to the best things in Abu Dhabi that will appeal to almost everyone in the world:
Louvre Abu Dhabi
When in Saadiyat Island, you need to visit the newly-opened Louvre Abu Dhabi. This is the first universal museum in the world. Built-in honour of the cultural diversity and unification of almost all of the world’s countries, the museum’s architect, Jean Nouvel designed it in resemblance with Arabian Medina.
The masterful planning and infrastructure design of the museum imitates the ‘rain of light’. That is seen under the palm trees of the oases in the region. With artefacts and cultural-historical items dating back centuries, the collection is sure to appeal to almost everyone who visits. But at last in Abu Dhabi Mamsha Al Saadiyat offer a fusion of sophistication and comfort.
If you’re in the emirate of Abu Dhabi, you can’t leave without witnessing the grandeur of the Emirates Palace. The 114 domes of the Palace that span across almost half a mile from one wing to the other are a sight you can’t help but be mesmerized by. Surrounded by green landscapes that provide a natural ambience to the environment, the Palace becomes nothing less than the perfect artwork done by a maestro.
It becomes luxuriously rich in opulence and magnificence in the day and outrightly brilliant by night. Moreover, the central dome changes colours to entertain those who behold the beauty in their eyes.
Once you head inside, prepare to be amazed by the gold, pearl and opal designs that line the walls, ceilings and fixtures. Needless to say, a palace even with royal décor would fall short when competing with what you see inside the Emirates Palace. To have an idea, start counting the 1,000 chandeliers that hang from the ceiling. In addition to this, look for the two handmade wall display carpets that each weigh a ton, showing the artistic work of images portraying the palace.
Any visit to the UAE is incomplete if you’re not visiting the Ferrari World. The largest space frame structure to have been built in the world, the indoor theme park comprises of 23 rides.
One of these is the world’s fastest roller coaster ride, the Formula Rossa which alone attracts populations from around the world. With almost 3 years taken to complete the massive project. Ferrari world has become the leading tourist attraction in the Middle East. Covering an area of almost 86000 square feet, the park offers roller coasters, thrill rides and family rides. Moreover, there are specific rides dedicated to children in addition to themed shows for everyone to enjoy. The Ferrari World has won over 20 awards and nominations all over the world for its grandeur and amusement.
One of the few things that keep people from coming to the emirates is the climate. More than anything, the heat is something that can get on your nerves if you stay outdoors too long. That is unless you visit a waterpark, especially one like the Yas Waterworld.
Home to more than 40 rides and specific pools for kids, adults and families, the waterpark spreads across 15 hectares of land. One of the most famous rides. The Bandit Bomber happens to be the longest suspended roller coaster in the Middle East. It is going at least 550 meters in length. Needless to say, the developers, Aldar Properties and Blackburn Share Holdings have provided an amazing opportunity for tourists to have fun without letting the weather get to them.
