About Abu Dhabi

Abu Dhabi is the capital and the largest of the seven Emirates. It’s natural desert climate and convenient location in the Arabian Gulf has endowed it with warm seas and white sandy beaches. Its long coastline and shallow waters of the southern Gulf, extend from the base of the Qatar Peninsula in the west to the border of the Emirate of Dubai on the northeast. Abu Dhabi is one of the richest and most modern cities in the world.

It provides tourists with large manicured gardens and parks, green boulevards, sophisticated high-rise towers, high-quality infrastructure, international luxury hotel chains and opulent shopping malls while still holding on to its rich Arabian culture and history.



Abu Dhabi has a hot, arid climate. Sunshine and blue skies can be expected throughout the year. June through September is generally hot and humid with temperatures averaging above 35 °C. Temperatures cool to around 20°C in the winter months.

The UAE Dirham (Dhs.) is the official currency and is also referred to as Arab Emirate Dirham (AED).
1.00 USD = 3.67 AED


While Arabic is UAE’s official language, English and Hindi are widely spoken. Other languages such as French, German, etc. are also used in the UAE.
