Abu Dhabi - A Unique Destination

Nestled in a gentle curve of the Arabian Gulf, Abu Dhabi, capital of the United Arab Emirates, is the powerhouse of the Middle East. The wealth of Abu Dhabi is breathtaking. It is the wealthiest of the UAE’s seven-state federation, and rests on one tenth of the world’s oil riches: it contributes to a national GDP of US$ 158 billion. In a city with the highest GDP in the world, live 420,000 citizens with a per capita net worth of US$ 17 million. The vision of its rulers has ensured that its wealth has been wisely spent, and the development of the UAE in a few short years has been miraculous. Waterfront development in the Gulf is booming, and the volume of development investment in Abu Dhabi alone will reach US$ 150 billion over the next five years. The 30 billion dollar Saadiyat Island in Abu Dhabi, and The Palm Jumeirah and the World Islands in Dubai are internationally famous examples of a vision becoming reality. Abu Dhabi harmoniously fuses the best of traditional and modern, creating a cultural oasis in the desert, as the new home of the Louvre and Guggenheim museums. Business and tourism are thriving- the Middle East is the fastest-growing tourist destination in the world. Abu Dhabi remains a truly beautiful destination, where over 200 islands dot the cobalt waters of the Gulf and an elegant corniche provides a border between city and sea. The US$ 3 billion Emirates Palace Hotel in Abu Dhabi has become recognised as a byword for luxury, and the city is set to be the new home of Formula 1 Grand Prix. Abu Dhabi’s sister city, Dubai, just an hour’s drive away, is famous for the Burj Al Arab, the world’s only seven-star hotel, and for the most prestigious and opulent horse racing event in the world: the Dubai World Cup.
