Abu Dhabi, the capital of the United Arab Emirates, is located on an island off the mainland in the Persian Gulf. The concentration on oil exports and trade is reflected in the modern high-rise buildings and extensive shopping centers such as the Abu Dhabi and Marina Mall. Under white marble domes, the large Sheikh Zayid Mosque with a huge Persian carpet and crystal chandeliers seat 41,000 believers.

The mosques and various beautiful architecture are perfect for any photographer who likes extraordinary structures and buildings with lots of details and sometimes breathtaking symmetry.

Travel tips for Abu Dhabi

When traveling to Abu Dhabi, you might want to plan your trip around the extreme temperatures during summer which can go up to 42 degrees Celcius during July. The only very few rainy days are usually between January and April.

Abu Dhabi is around 1.5 hours away from Dubai by car, so combining both of these beautiful cities in the United Arab Emirates definitely can make sense.
