Abu Dhabi – Volvo Ocean Race 2011-12

With over 200 natural islands, more than 400 kilometres of pristine coastline, tranquil oases, modern cityscapes, rocky, mountain-like heights, and awe-inspiring deserts, Abu Dhabi offers a diversity of visitor experiences. It is also preserving and leveraging its rich cultural heritage so that visitors can share in a centuries-old history and its many traditions, many of which continue today.

Abu Dhabi city bursts with dazzling business-leisure facilities ranging from a state-of-the-art convention centre, luxurious hotels, spas, designer golf courses and very soon, some of the world’s most famous museums. The emirate’s malls and traditional souks (markets) make for a great shopping expedition, offering the best handicrafts from local traditions to the best international high street fashion brands.

Gastronomic treats further abound from cool and sophisticated cafes, clubs and restaurants. For the fitness conscious, jogging and cycling are a welcome treat especially during the cooler months along Abu Dhabi city’s charming Corniche merely minutes away from the bustling city centre.

Abu Dhabi has a sub-tropical, arid climate. Sunny blue skies and high temperatures can be expected most of the year. Rainfall is sporadic, falling mainly in winter (November to March) and averaging 12cms per year in most of the emirate. Rain is more common in the ‘Oasis City’ of Al Ain in Abu Dhabi’s eastern region.
