The Best Shopping in Abu Dhabi

Shopping, the perfect pastime, in a country where fashion meets excruciatingly hot summer temperature. From traditional souks to air conditioned shopping center, many of Abu Dhabi's most popular shopping spots offer an out-of-the-heat place to gather, dine, sit and talk over coffee...and shop.
