View the private car collection of HH Sheikh Hamad Bin Hamdan Al Nahyan—member of the royal ruling family and fondly called The Rainbow Sheikh. True to his nickname, the Sheikh's collection includes Mercedes in every color of the rainbow. The space is also home to 200 cars ranging from off-road vehicles to classic American cars, and even the world's largest truck. This is a fascinating collection and a great place to stop on the way to or from Liwa. To prepare for a trip here, watch an episode of the BBC show Top Gear, where the space is featured.

About 45 kilometers (28 miles) south of Abu Dhabi, you’ll find this museum, home to the car collection of the “Rainbow Sheikh,” Sheikh Hamad bin Hamdan Al Nahyan. He’s built a huge garage in the middle of the desert to house his collection, which includes the world’s largest truck and an RV in the shape of a globe, not to mention an entire rainbow of Mercedes sedans, one for every day of the week.
