In a modern urban jewel rising out of the vast desert, visitors find plenty of things to do in Abu Dhabi. A trip to Observation Deck at 300 allows tourists to stare down at the city's skyline while enjoying tea or cocktails at a trendy restaurant. For a look at local culture, head to Sheikh Zayed Mosque, home of the world's largest carpet and giant crystal chandeliers. Those looking for an adventure should take advantage of operators running tours into the desert, with optional activities like camel riding and Bedouin camping.
