We had a trip that was truly unforgettable and perfect in every sense.
UAE - Abu Dhabi
The capital of the United Arab Emirates, Abu Dhabi was, for many years, a stolid administrative center with little appeal to tourists. After the passing of ruler Sheikh Zayed, his successor, Sheikh Khalifa, took the reigns of power and immediately reached out to foreign companies, sparking a huge building and development boom. Today, Abu Dhabi is a major world city and continues its ambitious development. While it may not quite match the glitz and commercial appeal of Dubai, its younger, more glamorous sibling, Abu Dhabi is certainly catching up in a hurry.
