Abu Dhabi travel

The capital of the United Arab Emirates, Abu Dhabi, is not only known for its desert dunes, but also its green parks, shopping, restaurants and modern architecture. What was once an economy that relied on the pearl trade and fishing dramatically changed with the discovery of huge petrol reserves in the 1930s. The government ploughed back oil revenues into the city by investing in city planning, skyscrapers and infrastructure. Today, Abu Dhabi is a modern city and an attractive travel destination. It is understandable that flights to Abu Dhabi are increasing bringing both holidaymakers and business people seeking to enjoy the city, its amenities and attractions.
