How to Make Your Holidays in Abu Dhabi Truly Memorableby Amanda Sutcliffe Travel Deals
Abu Dhabi, the capital city of the United Arab Emirates (UAE) is a place that has some interesting offerings in history, culture, and outdoor activities in store for its visitors. Upon stepping outside the city, you'll have a wide range of activities to enjoy in the emirate. The coastline of Abu Dhabi is the place from where you can embark on some exciting adventures on the sea. You can get to the desert, where some unique experiences await you on the fine sand dunes. The Hajar Mountains can also be an excellent spot to indulge in some adventurous activities and savour panoramic views of the surrounding regions.
Your holidays in Abu Dhabi allow you to visit Bait Al Oud, a leading academy for Arabian Music in the region. During the visit, you'll be introduced to the history of some core musical instruments used in this part of the world, such as Oud, Qanoon, and Rebabah. They've also played a considerable role in the evolution of Eastern and Western classical music. Your visit to Bait Al Oud would also help you enjoy a 10-minute performance of Oud and Qanoon. Towards the end of the tour, you can get to the shop that gives visitors the opportunity to purchase authentic musical instruments and souvenirs.
One of the most memorable experiences you'll have during your Abu Dhabi holidays is a half-day trip to the desert. You can book one of the desert safaris that take you to Al Khatem desert for exploring the natural beauty of the emirate's magnificent sand dunes. There are some activities along the way that you can indulge in, such as a visit to the camel farms and dune bashing. Transportation from the hotel where your stay has been arranged to the desert is usually arranged in a 4x4 vehicle and you'll be guided by a certified national tour guide. The half-day desert safari ends with camping in a traditional desert camp.
The savings made while booking your cheap holidays to Abu Dhabi can be utilised to have a great shopping experience at the Madinat Zayed Shopping Centre and Gold Souq. It is an excellent place to get a variety of items, such as Arabian perfumes, spices, dress materials, and gold. For those who like jewellery, this can be the right place to buy beautifully-crafted ornaments made of diamond, gold, and pearl. The Madinat Zayed Gold Centre is worth exploring as it is Abu Dhabi's only gold centre.
Don't miss the tour of Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque, which was ranked 3rd in the list of 'World's Most Amazing Landmarks' by TripAdvisor. This elegant mosque located in the Emirati capital was the dream of late Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan, former president of the UAE. While taking a walk through several domes of this mosque, you will get to discover its fascinating architecture and learn more about the Islamic faith. It is absolutely necessary to be in conservative, respectful, and long clothes while visiting this mosque. If you do not have them, you can borrow traditional clothes from the Visitor Centre.
You can have loads of fun with the savings made on cheap flight tickets to Dubai.
