Description

Abu Dhabi and its past are still interconnected. Its desert roots are still upheld and made available for all its visitors to enjoy while the less view-able past is recreated and displayed in the Heritage Village. Glance at a fraction of Abu Dhabi’s stunning architectural scene before acknowledging its past at the Heritage Village and finally heading off to the desert for some sandy action.

Visit to Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque

Built to exemplify the unity Islam encourages, the mosque is a unity of so many elements that definitely encourage harmony. Macedonian marble, Chandeliers from Germany, carpet from Iran and Ottoman architectural styles create a symphonic masterpiece that has the capacity to accommodate roughly 41,000 worshipers. Its top is decked out with pearly domes that are framed with minarets from which emanate the call of prayer. A walk through its gold-capped pillars and a few minutes inside its semi-precious stone clad interior will douse you with a dose of serenity and spirituality. Once you have admired the religious influence of Abu Dhabi you will be taken to know more about its rich past.

Visit to Heritage Village

Recreated to the tiniest detail of an oasis settlement dating back to the era before oil was discovered, the Heritage village gives us a look into a time that could be forgotten because of Abu Dhabi’s rapid growth. Within its four walls that resemble a fort are exhibits showcasing many historic tools and activities. There is a recreated souk for trading goats, a mosque, a falaj irrigation system and a wind tower. You will see Bedouin tents put up and Arabic coffee being brewn in traditional pots. But, the experience just doesn’t stop there; you can observe so many traditional arts in action. Glass blowing, weaving, soap making, etc are shown. There are also demonstrations of Falconry, a sport that is the pride of Abu Dhabi. Once you are done with the tour of the Heritage Village your mind will be spinning to process how quickly Abu Dhabi transformed from a quaint pearl diving settlement to an architectural masterpiece.

Evening Desert Safari in Abu Dhabi

A trip to Abu Dhabi is never complete without feeling the wind of the desert blowing through your hair. The desert gifts its visitors with tons of exhilaration and an experience that will remind you of Abu Dhabi every time you hear about the barren land. Travel in a 4WD to the desert for a thrilling 6 hours in an Arabic Camp. Your tour starts in the afternoon when you will be picked up and driven to the desert. Your first activity will be a thrilling dune ride after which you will visit the camel farm. After admiring the majestic desert creatures you will be taken to the summit of a dune for a sunset view that will be etched in your memory. Head to the camp and try out activities like Sheesha smoking, henna painting and watching a belly dance performance. You can also try out Emirati sweets and sip on some Arabic Coffee. End the night with a yummy note by sitting down to a magnificent barbecue spread under the starry sky.
