Abu Dhabi, the opulent capital of the UAE, stands as a testament to cutting-edge architecture and boasts an awe-inspiring skyline that captivates the imagination. If your itinerary includes an exploration of this vibrant city, embarking on a journey to uncover the marvels of these architectural masterpieces is a must, and among them, the following three stand out in particular.
Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque
Elegance meets grandeur at the famous Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque. Be it day or night, this majestic landmark shows the unparallel architectural excellence in Abu Dhabi. With 82 marble domes, 1096 embedded columns, Swarovski chandeliers, and reflective pools, this breathtaking monument is stunning beyond belief.
Louvre Abu Dhabi
Abu Dhabi’s modern Louvre steals the spotlight with its award-winning architecture by Jean Nouvel. You will find 9200 square metres of galleries with incredible art pieces, and the 8-layer dome with a star lattice makes sure you never see the same lighting twice in this awe0-inspiring wonder.
Bak Kut Teh
If you’re into juice pork ribs rich in flavour, prepare to treat your tastebuds to sizzling blends of white pepper, garlic, salt, cinnamon, cloves, fennel, and star anise mixed with pork. Pair it up with steaming hot rice for a wholesome meal to fill up your tummy!
Adding elegance to Abu Dhabi’s horizon, the magnificent Capital Gate provides the perfect backdrop for your pictures. The skyscraper leans 18 degrees west and holds the Guinness World Record for the furthest manmade leaning building. When you’ve finished sightseeing, you can retreat to Qasr Al Sarab Desert Resort by Anantara and indulge in your favourite desert adventures.
