Abu Dhabi is the capital of the United Arab Emirates and the second most populous city (the most populous being Dubai). It is the largest Emirate taking up 80% of the country’s landmass. Traditionally more conservative than Dubai as it has a more controlled legal system and is deeply rooted in tradition.
Abu Dhabi plays host to many different events including concerts, exhibitions and sporting events. The most popular tourist attraction takes place during November for the Abu Dhabi Formula 1 Grand Prix. Ladies please take note, if you’re visiting Abu Dhabi, make sure that you wear clothing that covers your shoulders and your legs from your knees should be worn especially when visiting public places like shopping malls. This will help prevent any unwanted attention, or cause offence. Swimming costumes are perfectly fine at public beaches, hotels and resorts. If you’re dining out or going to beach clubs or nightclubs, it’s recommended to cover your shoulders to and from the venue too.
