Abu Dhabi: the world-first emirate for family attractions

4th June 2019

Abu Dhabi is definitely the relaxed and cool emirate, which you might expect since it is the UAE capital, and the place to see some of the world’s most talked-about new architecture.

But even with all that in mind Abu Dhabi will probably still come as a surprise. Not least of all because Etihad Airways now fly there direct from the UK in under seven hours, year round. And if you’re already thinking winter sun and no long haul, you can add no jet lag into the mix as well.

But what’s most amazing about Abu Dhabi at the moment, is how many of its family attractions aren’t just phenomenal, they’re world-firsts too. Dozens are also piled high with international awards, and it sometimes seems as if new must-dos are turning up on a monthly basis.

It can be tricky to keep up with such fast-paced fun, so to help you out here are seven of the most exhilarating and exceptional family attractions as recommended by Visit Abu Dhabi, take a look and feel inspired.
