Abu Dhabi Emirate Holiday Packages

So, here you are, planning a holiday to Abu Dhabi, the desert-and-ocean-swathed capital of the United Arab Emirates. This extraordinary city has come a long way since it was first named for the gazelles that once inhabited it. With a modern skyline surrounded by the remains of ancient civilisations, packages to Abu Dhabi are at once a trip through the past and a peek into the future.

Things to Do in Abu Dhabi

When you arrive, set aside at least a few hours for the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque and, if you can, take the Sunset Tour to see its many domes and columns painted red by the setting sun. Now, no trip to Abu Dhabi would be complete without an up-close visit to the Etihad Towers, including the Observation Deck at 300 on the 74th floor. If you’re a budding beach bum, spend at least some time walking along Abu Dhabi's shorelines, especially the Corniche on the western side of the main island. A trip to Emirates Palace, a luxury hotel that is also a city landmark, is also on the cards.

These locations have a few things in common, but chief among them is they’re not exactly next to each other. Browse Wotif’s Abu Dhabi car hire options and navigate Abu Dhabi's busy streets on your own time.

Shopping, Dining & Nightlife

Once you’re on Corniche Road, your shopping pilgrimage should start and possibly stop at Marina Mall. This place has it all; it melds stores from around the world with a distinctly Arabian flair, and when your bags get heavy (or your wallet gets light!) you can relax on a platform that overlooks the ocean. It’s even got a nice skating rink if window shopping isn’t enough cardio for you. If you can pry yourself away from Marina Mall for a few hours, drive over to Yas Mall. It’s located next to Ferrari World—yes, that’s a theme park based around Ferraris—Yas Island. If all the zooming cars and merchandise overwhelms you, relax next to the musical fountain and reflect on all those impulse buys you just made. But don’t worry, you can afford it; after all, you saved a tonne of money with our Abu Dhabi package deals.

If traditional shopping is more your flavour, check out the Iranian Souq E Meena Fish Market, a lively place with local vendors. If you like seafood, the market allows you to have your fish and eat it, too—if you bring any fish purchased in there to the market restaurant, they will cook and serve it for you to eat like a native. If you're looking for other eating options with a less fishy view, most of Abu Dhabi's landmark buildings include restaurants from around the world, especially upscale European options. If you want to try local Emirati fare, you'll find that, too, but bear in mind that fish is the mainstay here.

After a busy day touring Abu Dhabi, why not relax or party…or both by the beach? Just remember, alcohol is illegal in public places, so if you'd like a drink with your shindig, well, you'll need to find a bar, most of which are in hotels or private clubs. If you're looking to combine drinking, dancing and a view, head over to Etihad Towers, Emirate Palace or Yas Island. Remember, drink and party responsibly (and well)!

What's Next?

You’ve got annual leave to spend—so stop daydreaming and start planning! Book Abu Dhabi holiday deals with Wotif and save extra cash you can spend on food and souvenirs for your mates. Or extend your trip by booking one of our UAE holidays. The sky’s the limit, and your desert adventure is waiting!
