Abu Dhabi Attractions


Until 40 years ago, Abu Dhabi, now the island capital of the United Arab Emirates, was a small fishing village. Transformed by oil revenues into a modern metropolis, today, it is a beautiful modern garden city, with wide tree-lined boulevards, lush green parks, and cool, bubbling fountains. However, parts of the old Abu Dhabi can still be seen in the Dhow wharf and fish market, in the north-east of the city.
