Abu Dhabi Overview

Abu Dhabi is home to important financial institutions such as the Abu Dhabi Securities Exchange, the Central Bank of the United Arab Emirates and the corporate headquarters of many companies and numerous multinational corporations. One of the world's largest producers of oil, Abu Dhabi has actively attempted to diversify its economy in recent years through investments in financial services and tourism.

Abu Dhabi, garners less worldwide attention than its neighbor, the flashy, rapidly developing city of Dubai. However, Abu Dhabi is actually richer than Dubai and has monitored its growth carefully, with an emphasis on the arts and preserving the city's heritage.

Abu Dhabi has more than 10 top places to see, especially considering tours to the desert outside the city top the list of must-see attractions.

Lulu Island, a man-made island with peach-colored dunes, can be reached easily by ferry boats, and visitors can swim, ride camels, take a train around the island or just enjoy the view of the city skyline. Saadiyat Island, dubbed the "island of happiness" by local residents who enjoy weekends there, now has branches of the Louvre and Guggenheim museums, as well as a performing arts complex.
