A phenomenon almost every nation is privy to is the existence of famous monuments or landmarks. The intriguing nature of such landmarks does not merely stem from the demonstration of amazing human ability but also from its cultural and national associations. For instance, the Giza Pyramid and the Great Sphinx in Cairo serves as a symbol of ancient Egypt; a continuous reminder to succeeding generations of the highly developed society that once existed. The Emirate of Abu Dhabi too has its own unique attractions, and for the leisure tourist, its a one stop destination since luxury accommodation such as the Anantara Al Sahel Villas and many of the sightseeing locations described below are all available within close proximity.
When it comes to the Emirate of Abu Dhabi, the capital of the United Arab Emirates, several landmarks are worth mentioning and the Abu Dhabi Corniche is one of them. A manicured path that runs along the waterfront, the Abu Dhabi Corniche is filled with attractions: play areas for small children, a number of restaurants and eateries and cycle paths for those who wish to get in some exercise. The Emirates Palace is another iconic landmark. A seven star luxury hotel, the Emirates Palace stands out in both its architecture and services.
The third iconic landmark in Abu Dhabi is the Sheikh Zayed Mosque: the most important place of worship in the country where Muslims gather for Eid prayers. It is believed that during Eid, it is visited by more than 40, 000 people. Other landmarks that are of note include Yas Viceroy and the accompanying Yas Waterworld. Yas Viceroy is one of the five star resorts Abu Dhabi with a stunning and unique external architecture that stands out in the city both during day and night when it is lit up by colourful lights.
These landmarks and attractions are only some of the many places to see for those residing in the many resorts Abu Dhabi has to offer.
