The Emirate of Abu Dhabi is one of the seven Emirates that make up the United Arab Emirates (UAE). It’s the largest, and the capital of the UAE. It’s also a wealthy city that consists of many high rises, casinos, and luxurious hotels. There are also countless opportunities for high-end shopping located throughout the city. Many new additions have been constructed over the years such as Abu Dhabi’s own Formula 1 race track and many museums.
Abu Dhabi offers a hot climate as you’d likely expect, and summer highs routinely top 100 degrees through the summer months. Temperatures drop a little in the winter months to more comfortable levels in the low and mid-70s. Rainfall is not much of a concern as Abu Dhabi is in a desert climate, meaning it is unlikely to have any rainfall throughout the year. Expect plenty of sunshine for most of the year with clouds being only slightly more common in July and August.
Keep this in mind when you book your flight to Kaliningrad landing at Khrabrovo Airport (KGD). There are many great Air Canada flights to Kaliningrad and other major Russian airports.
Late fall through mid spring is the best time to visit to get the most of your trip to Abu Dhabi. This time of year avoids the hottest temperatures and high humidity which plagues the summer months. With little threat of rain or clouds throughout the year, bring plenty of sunblock as this is definitely the time of year for outdoor activities.
If you’re interested in art and history, visit the Louvre Abu Dhabi. This museum was created after approval from the French government and the original Louvre museum in Paris. The Louvre Abu Dhabi has a collection of 35,000 works of art which include pieces by Pablo Picasso, Leonardo da Vinci, and more. Not only is the artwork inside incredible, but the building itself is a fantastic work of art as well. Slightly futuristic but also paying tribute to the history and architectural traditions of the region, this museum is a can’t-miss attraction in Abu Dhabi.
For more local history, stop by the Emirates Palace. This massive structure is incredibly luxurious and a fine example of local architecture. The sight of the gold encrusted and jewel inlaid interiors is one you’re sure to remember.
Head to Yas Island. This island is home to three different theme parks so if you enjoy an adrenaline boost, you can ride some of the roller coasters and thrill rides. In fact, the fastest roller coaster in the world is located here. The Formula Rossa reaches speeds of up to 149 miles per hour!
Abu Dhabi is served by the Abu Dhabi International Airport (AUH), a major airport where you can catch a flight from any of the 30 different airlines that fly from here. It was first opened in 1982 and has expanded and become more modernized since then. There are new expansions being worked on, with the most recent scheduled to open by 2022.
