Enjoy Memorable Experiences with Cheap Holidays to Abu Dhabi

by Daisy Wilkinson Travel Guides

Over the years, Abu Dhabi has grown considerably to become one of the most advanced cities in the Middle East region. It is the capital of the United Arab Emirates (UAE) and also of the Emirate of Abu Dhabi. This Emirati city was planned by Katsuhiko Takahashi, a well-known Japanese architect, in the year 1967 under Sheikh Zayed's guidance. What has expanded today into a charming metropolis was once planned to house only a small population of about 40,000 individuals. While getting around in this part of the UAE, you'll come across numerous skyscrapers, the most prominent among them being the towers of Abu Dhabi Investment Authority, National Bank of Abu Dhabi, and Etihad.

If you wish to enjoy cheap holidays to Abu Dhabi, it is advisable to visit during the summer season when the hotels are willing to slash their accommodation rates. However, you'll have to be prepared for the extremely high daytime temperatures and high humidity that the city experiences in this season from June to August. While temperatures drop a bit in September and October, they're far from being pleasant for most of the tourists. If you wish to explore the city during its winter season from November to March, you'll have to book your hotel stays several months in advance, as this is a peak tourist season.

The Abu Dhabi holidays would give you the opportunity to explore some of its globally renowned attractions. Among them is a magnificent mosque known as the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque. It has been built with a combination of Fatimid, Ottoman, and the Mamluk architectural styles and has become a cultural icon of the city in recent times. If you get to the observation deck of the Jumeirah located in Etihad Towers, you'll be at the highest point of Abu Dhabi. From that point, you can enjoy awe-inspiring views of the city and its surroundings. You can know more about falconry and its interesting history with a visit to the Abu Dhabi Falcon Hospital.

While enjoying your Abu Dhabi holidays, you'll also get the chance to indulge in thrilling outdoor activities. Among them is a day trip that you can take to the Al Ain oasis in an air-conditioned coach. On the way, you can witness some enchanting views and the way of life in the oasis. While at the Al Ain National Museum, you can get some intriguing insights into the history of this oasis while browsing through the exhibits. Also worth exploring is the Sheikh Zayed Palace Museum, which was a residence of the late founder of the UAE, His Highness Sheikh Zayed.
