For families of all ages, Abu Dhabi is a destination unlike any other in terms of activities and things to do.
Families interested in history and culture should look no further than the 200 year old Al Maqtaa Fort, and a visit to the stunning Zayed Grand Mosque should not be missed. Keep the kids happy with camel rides in the desert, Wadi and dune bashing in 4x4's or a wildlife experience where you may observe indigenous giraffe, Beisa oryx and Barbary sheep. Or if you prefer, keep it a bit tamer with a trip to the spectacular Abu Dhabi Zoo.
The islands of Yas and Saadiyat are a must; culturally Saadiyat has the largest concentration of cultural institutions anywhere in the world, or head to Yas Island for a mind-blowing family day out. The Ferrari World, F1 race track is situated here, along with the fastest roller coaster in the world. Shopping is possible and dad can even head off to the Links golf course.
