Abu Dhabi

An hour from Dubai, the emirate of Abu Dhabi may not be as flashy as its neighbor, but it's a major player in the world of arts and culture. Visitors can go inside the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque, fashioned from white marble, decorated with precious stones and so cavernous that its carpet measures 5,700 square meters (61,000 square feet). The ongoing $26 billion manmade Saadiyat Island project is home to branches of the Louvre and the Guggenheim museums. Recent additions to Abu Dhabi's attractions include a Formula 1 circuit and a Ferrari World theme park with roller coasters.
