Why go to Abu Dhabi

The UAE's understated capital has long been overshadowed by Dubai, its flashier and more flamboyant neighbour. Now, though, Abu Dhabi holidays are increasingly in demand. With a Manhattan-esque skyline that's constantly in flux, a constellation of newly-opened international art galleries and a proliferation of all-inclusive Abu Dhabi deals to tempt visitors, the largest emirate is slowly spreading its petals to the world.

What Abu Dhabi lacks in the way of historic landmarks, it more than makes up for in knock-out modern architecture.

The two real must-see buildings on any Abu Dhabi holiday are the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque and the unbelievably luxurious Emirates Palace Hotel - stay here on an affordable Abu Dhabi package deal to enjoy the yoga classes, champagne bar and caviar-based spa treatments.

Other feats of 21st-century engineering include the Capital Gate Building, which leans four times more than the Tower of Pisa, and pioneering zero-carbon development Masdar City.
