5 Must Visit Attractions in Abu Dhabi While On a Cruise

1.Sheikh Zayed Grand mosque - Walk on the world’s largest hand-knotted carpet– free


Regarded as one of the world’s largest mosque with one of the finest combinations of various Islamic architecture styles, the Grand Mosque is a portrayal of serenity. Built by the honorable Sheikh Zayed Bin Sultan Al Nahyan not only as a showcase of Islamic architecture but also as a symbol of peace with diversity and a place of learning Islamic teachings and Islamic science. You will be stunned by the beauty of 1,000 decorative columns, 82 pearl-like domes and one of the world’s largest 24 carat gold-plated chandeliers.

2.Louvre Abu Dhabi - Step foot into the Remarkable Museum - 60 AED (17 USD)


Louvre museum

The remarkable Louvre Abu Dhabi is the first of its type to open in the middle east and is situated in Saadiyat Island’s Cultural district. The architecture was done by the noted prize winner Jean Nouvel and was inspired by the symbols of UAE’s heritage like the sea and thatched palm rooves. The 9,200 square meters of galleries features a permanent and temporary section that showcases many notable pieces like Centre Pompidou, Musee d’Orsay, etc. that have been loaned by Louvre Paris.

3.Emirates Place – Where you can withdraw gold from an ATM(Free entrance)


A beacon of Abu Dhabi’s regal personality, the Emirates Palace is a perfect blend of Emirati grandeur with modern-day luxuries to provide you with a majestic walk-in experience. The attention to detail is amazing from its bubbling water fountains to the grand staircase and the breathtaking ceiling, the structure truly befits it name. Head out to the freshly manicured lawns into its private beach and observe the goldish exterior blending perfectly with the colors of nature. It’s a beautiful sight even from a distance and at night the main dome features a rainbow-changing light effect that adds to its grandeur.

4.Visit ancient Abu Dhabi at Heritage Village - Free


Experience a bit of time travel as you step into the Abu Dhabi Heritage Village and view the many traditional facets of life before Abu Dhabi was modernized. You will also get an idea of how life was in the desert and be able to see a real-life ancient mosque, souk and a settlement. This is also a good place to shop for souvenirs and observe many local handicrafts like pottery-making, fabric weaving and glassblowing in the process.

5.Enjoy a desert safari Al Khatim Desert – An standard Desert tour cost 150 AED (40 USD)


Situated in between Al Ain and Abu Dhabi, the Al Khatim desert is the perfect spot for some thrilling off-road drives.

Visiting Dubai while on a Cruise in Abu Dhabi


A Dubai tour is a must while visiting Abu Dhabi on a cruise ship. Dubai is the first city in the Arab World to bag a spot in UNESCO’s ‘creative cities of design’ list. A potpourri of cultures existing harmoniously to paint a diverse landscape of culinary, fashion, performance and music while holding on to its Islamic roots firmly, Dubai is a city loved by all. Its not just superlative-winning high-rises and high-end malls, this city has many personalities and a Dubai city tour will introduce you to every one of them. Head to Dubai’s oldest building, the Al Fahidi fort, situated in an ancient neighborhood where you can still see mudbrick walls and houses with wind towers. Go inside the coral and mortar walls of the fort to observe the many dioramas and exhibits that showcase artifacts and daily life scenes that date back to the 1800s. Go on a trip that will open all your senses, an Abra (water taxi) ride. The eyes will view the splendid mix of old and new Dubai buildings lining the banks. The ears will revel at the peaceful sound of water mixed with the bustling sound of shoppers at the nearby souks. The nose will pick up scents of the fragrant spices that you will soon be able to touch and taste at the spice souk. From coffee and incense to spice and dried flowers, the spice souk has every kind of dried item. Dubai is not named the city of Gold for no reason. Let your eyes take in the variety of designs as you walk through the Gold Souk. Stop by at Dubai Mall that is home to not just 1200 shops but also the Dubai Aquarium and Underwater zoo. Then, for a look at a traditional shopping souk visit Madinat Jumeirah and finally the showstopping icon, the Burj Al Arab.
