Once you’ve arranged your car rental, Abu Dhabi will open up before your very eyes...
Abu Dhabi has a vast wealth of things to see and experience. It has many attractions for visitors, including the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque, with its gold and marble splendour and places for 40,000 worshippers, and the Ferrari World theme park on Yas Island, with its exciting rides and roller-coasters.
Arriving at Abu Dhabi Airport (AUH), tourists can take advantage of Abu Dhabi car hire and drive out to Saadiyat Island, the new cultural hub of the city. It contains residences, businesses and the Guggenheim Abu Dhabi and Louvre Abu Dhabi art museums. Yas Island plays host to the annual Grand Prix race and is also the location of the Warner Brothers Movie Theme Park and an impressive shopping mall.
The Corniche features beautiful beaches and a permanent wakeboarding park. Nothing beats the Hamdan Shopping Centre for bargains and souvenirs. The Carpet Souk in Mina Street has carpets at very competitive prices, as well as traditional Arabic cushions made to order. The Zayed National Museum features wonderful displays and interactive educational exhibits. If you’re looking for luxury, all of the rooms in the superb five-star Mirage Palace hotel face the sea and there’s enough entertainment on tap to keep the entire family happy.

Be prepared for the exciting new experiences that will unfold before you in Abu Dhabi...
Hire a car in Abu Dhabi and you can take a leisurely drive out to the lovely oasis city of Al Ain next to the Oman border, with its ancient falaj irrigation system. Locally known as “the garden city”, it’s a vast green oasis with extensive gardens. You’ll also find Al Jahili Fort, which is home to a fascinating exhibition dedicated to British explorer and travel writer Wilfred Thesiger, who explored the region during the 1940s.
Other places to visit include Jebel Hafeet Mountain, the highest in the country, the beautiful ochre dunes at Rub al Khali, the fishing town of Mirfa and Al Gharbia, which has the world's largest unbroken sand desert and some of the world’s highest dunes.
Driving back into the main part of the emirate, don’t miss The Avenue at Etihad Towers. It’s one of the most fashionable and modern malls in the world and just a stone’s throw from the contrast of Qasr al Hosn, the oldest building in the city.
The most popular time to visit Abu Dhabi is in the winter, but it has good weather all year round.
