Out of all the exciting destinations that you will come across while holidaying in Abu Dhabi, none quite adds up to the mystique and tradition of the Bateen Shipyard found on the west coast of the island of Al Bateen. Famed for its ship building techniques, the area can be visited by staying at an Abu Dhabi resort in the vicinity. Desert Islands Resort & Spa by Anantara which is amongst the leading Abu Dhabi beach hotels would serve you well and will come across as a good choice of accommodation.
For a true taste of ancient tradition and custom, head over to the Bateen Shipyard where you will be greeted by sights of fishermen bringing in their daily catch of the freshest seafood in the area. The favoured fishing dhows are used by the locals as was the custom employed by their forefathers in the years gone by. One may also capture the local craftsmen hand carving their respective dhows out of the finest teak wood on offer. Venture out to this part of Abu Dhabi and see as to how communities exist without the advancements of modern day technology. The souvenir shop offers you a chance to purchase your own miniature of a dhow which would look impressive on your mantelpiece back home.
