The capital of the UAE, often referred to as the "Manhattan of the Middle East,” has some incredible sites to be explored. Enjoy lunch at one of the finest restaurants in town and marvel at the UAE’s largest mosque and the extravagant, exclusive 7-star hotel—the Emirates Palace.

After passing through the world’s largest man-made port at Jebel Ali, your tour in Abu Dhabi starts at the Heritage Village, a fortress-like compound that gives a glimpse into life before the city became oil-rich. A refreshing drive along the Corniche, with breathtaking views of the skyline and the Al Hisn Fort, brings you to the Emirates Palace, reputed to be the world’s most exclusive hotel, and Sheikh Khalifa’s palace, where the UAE’s president resides.

After a break for lunch at one of the city’s best restaurants, see traditional wooden dhows being constructed by hand on a trip to the Dhow Yard and Batinah Harbour. Traditional Emirati handicrafts can be seen at the government-run center where local women are engaged in textile weaving, basket-making, and other time-honored crafts requiring remarkable dexterity. Finally, visit the UAE's biggest mosque before the relaxing, 90-minute drive back to Dubai.
