Abu Dhabi is located on the northeastern part of the Persian Gulf in the Arabian Peninsula and serves as the capital of the United Arab Emirates. The largest of all the emirates, Abu Dhabi makes up almost 87% of the country’s total area.

Archaeological evidence suggests that civilisations have existed on Abu Dhabi since the third century BC. The origins of the Al Nahyan family, one of seven ruling families in the UAE were established in 1793. The emirate began to expand during the pearl trading days of the late 19th century however, this initial prosperity declined during the 1930s resulting in a massive financial blow. Everything changed for the emirate when, in 1958, oil was discovered and it has been said that with oil came the birth of modern Abu Dhabi.

Today Abu Dhabi is a cultural and commercial hub and is a centre for political and industrial activities in the UAE. It is the home of both the Abu Dhabi Emiri Family and the President. Once overshadowed by the construction boom of neighbouring Dubai, Abu Dhabi is now coming into its own as a luxury travel and business destination on Abu Dhabi tours. The development and urbanisation of Abu Dhabi along with a high average income has helped to expand this emirate into a beautiful, diverse and multicultural metropolis. Despite offering a laid back atmosphere, it remains an incredibly exciting tourist destination.on an exciting Abu Dhabi vacation.
