A destination for the experience-hungry traveler, this Emirate has something for everyone—from the dynamism of a 21st century city, to a pristine beach-front, from the tranquility of the desert, to the rugged mountain scenery.

The Emirate of Abu Dhabi is the largest of the seven Emirates that comprise the UAE and covers more than 85% of the country's total landmass including 700 kilometers of coastline and 200 offshore islands.

The population of the UAE has grown dramatically over the last two decades and currently numbers around four million people. Abu Dhabi has the largest population of the seven Emirates, with almost 1,600,000 residents from a wealth of nationalities that form a diverse and cosmopolitan society. With a varied landscape stretching southwards to the famous Liwa Oasis, home to some of the largest sand dunes in the region, and eastwards to the green Garden City of Al Ain, the natural environment is the Emirate's greatest resource.

The tradition of Arab hospitality permeates throughout the Emirate, from a warm welcome in any of the city's top hotels, to genuine local flavor in the countless cultural sites and retail outlets.
