Abu Dhabi and the Emirates
Following the end of the United Kingdom's protectorate over the United Arab Emirates in 1971, the six Sheikhs gathered to sign the Constitution that constituted the United Arab Emirates. It is made up of seven states, including the two Abu Dhabi and Dubai powers. The main source of income is oil, although the tourism sector has been one of the most important emirates in recent years, largely thanks to groups such as the Burj Al Arab, the Palm Islands, 1 "Yas Marina" and the tallest building in the world, Burj Khalifa in Dubai.
Abu Dhabi is one of the 7 cities that make up the United Arab Emirates. Five hundred years ago, when the city was established, the main occupations were mainly the work of shepherds and fishmongers, the raising of camels and dates of cultivation in desert oases. In the 20th century pearls were discovered in the area and began to be commercialized and exported. It was from 1958 when oil was discovered and caused an economic boom that led to the popularization of the city and its surroundings.
What to see in Abu Dhabi?
If you are a car lover you should not miss the opportunity to go with your rent a car to Ferrari World, a theme park dedicated to this brand that is located on the island of Yas, artificial island of Abu Dhabi. Here you can see this complex that contains 19 attractions with two roller coasters and an aquatic attraction located under the great red cover of more than 86,000 square meters. This is the biggest theme park in the world and you will love it if you dare to ride Formula Rossa, the world's fastest roller coaster that reaches 150 miles per hour.
If, on the contrary, you are looking for a more tranquil and cultural plan, Abu Dhabi gives you the opportunity to visit its Sheikh Zayed Mosque, known as the Great Mosque and considered one of the most beautiful buildings in the Arab world. Also, you have to cross the seafront of Corniche, where you will see the artificial island of Lulu. Also go to the Heritage Village, an open-air museum where the Emirates' way of life is clearly seen before the great oil discovery and you can also go to the Emirates Palace Hotel if the economy allows you to stay, the most expensive hotel in the world.
Travel with your car rental
Abu Dhabi is an hour and a half away from Dubai, one of the most dynamic cities in the world. It offers entertainment and fun for all ages and all the nationalities of the world. Here you will find the famous Jumerah Palm, one of the main attractions of the city, which is formed by a group of artificial islands: a trunk, 17 branches and a semicircle that protects the whole complex from the waves. You will also see the tallest building in the world, 828 meters high: the Burj Khalifa. Your breath will be cut off when you see this wonder in the construction of which more than 12,000 people participated for approximately 6 years. In the city you should approach its famous souks, especially the Spice Souk. Go to the beaches, among which we recommend the Al Mamzar Beach Park, with its fine white sand, calm waters and the views of the Burj Al Arab, the candle-shaped hotel that is a symbol of the city. Of course you can take the opportunity to go to other cities like Sharaj, considered the Cultural Capital of the Arab world or Al Ain, where its culture and traditions are preserved as the camel sale in the camel market.
