Abu Dhabi is the capital of the United Arab Emirates and one of the richest cities in the world - and it has the buildings and hotels to prove it. Brightsun Travel can offer the best in luxury holidays to Abu Dhabi, staying in some of the world's most decadent hotels. The renowned Emirates Palace is both hotel and attraction, often labelled as the cultural hub of the city, hosting high profile concerts and festivals, and offering an impressive fine art collection. The hotel is the ultimate in opulence. It has real gold lining the walls and woodwork of the hotel, and over 1000 crystal chandeliers hanging from its ceilings. The Emirates Palace, located in the heart of Abu Dhabi, is also a great place to go for award-winning food, offering fine Arabian cuisine and traditional afternoon teas. The hotel also has 85 hectares of garden and over 1.3 kilometres of private beach. An equally opulent building, and a fine example of Islamic architecture, is the magnificent Sheikh Zayed Gand Mosque, located in the centre of Abu Dhabi, with the capacity to host over 40,000 worshippers. The Grand Mosque is a marvel, made of pure white marble and semi-precious stones, with gold chandeliers dotted with Swarovski crystals. The Grand Mosque is open to visitors and is often the highlight to a stay in Abu Dhabi, with guided tours offering the opportunity to learn about Islamic religion.
Elsewhere in Abu Dhabi you'll find the Abu Dhabi Corniche, which curves the western side of the main Abu Dhabi Island, and a perfect spot to lounge on white sandy beaches, or cycle public pathways overlooking the city’s impressive modern skyline. Abu Dhabi Corniche is a great place to visit at night, as many local families have found out, with many parks and gardens offering light relief from the heat of the day. Abu Dhabi also has its own man-made island, Yas Island, housing the Ferrari World theme park and offering dining and shopping opportunities galore.
