On the crossroads of Asia, Africa and Europe, Dubai is a cosmopolitan city of diversity and contrasts. It is a vibrant and unique destination, combining variety and excitement with excellent infrastructure and first-class hotels, as well as conference, dining, shopping and entertainment facilities. Abu Dhabi, the capital of the United Arab Emirates, on the other hand is far more traditional while still on the cutting edge of modernity. Admire the city's skyscrapers, shop till you drop at the Abu Dhabi and Marina Malls and let the white-marble domes of the vast Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque take your breath away.
