Why It's Worth It

From magnificent mosques to a modern museum, Abu Dhabi is a welcoming, world-class city that’s only just beginning to hit its stride. Rising from the desert along the shores of the Arabian Gulf, this young capital city of the United Arab Emirates glistens with architecturally impressive buildings, boasts an array of cultural and outdoor attractions and activities, and offers a culturally diverse and relaxed way to experience the Middle East. —Christine Hinz
