Cheap flights to Abu Dhabi

For towers that seem to stretch on forever, giant slides and a lengthy promenade that will literally blow your mind and fill your camera memory card up at the same time, welcome to Abu Dhabi. Some Abu Dhabi must-sees include a trip over to Yas Island before your bones get too weary, where you’ll find your yearning for adrenalin rides comes to a lifetime peak. Yas is home to the world’s fastest rollercoaster, Formula Rossa, and the Ferrari World theme park, plus a Formula 1 track that will make you feel like you really wish you’d studied race car driving as your major. Check out the vast Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque with plenty of space for 40,000 worshippers, and marvel at the pure sight of the Capital Gate Building – an architectural masterpiece.
