The Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque is a must for any visitor to Abu Dhabi! Not only is it one of the most beautiful places in the city but it is a great place to learn about Emirati and Islamic Culture!

Souq at Qaryat al Beri

Situated just over the water from the Grand Mosque Souq at Qaryat al Beri is one of my favourite places to hang out in the evening! The views from here are unrivalled when it comes to watching the mosque at sun down!

Top tip: have dinner on the terrace at Abdel Wahab – a hidden gem in Abu Dhabi! Be sure to be there for sun down for the most spectacular views!

Eastern mangroves

The Eastern Mangroves arena of the greenest places in the city and in my opinion one of the most beautiful places in Abu Dhabi! You can stroll along the waterside or rent a kayak or donut boat to get closer to the mangroves and its wildlife!

The Louvre

An architectural triumph in Abu Dhabi! The building is one of the most impressive museum buildings I have seen! It plays with light and shadow and is the perfect place for a photo shoot!

Saadiyat beach club

My favorite beach at any time of year! Perfect sand, blue seas and skies and a pool to die for! This place is a sure fire Insta-hit! Note: For a complete guide to visiting Abu Dhabi in Winter check out this post.

Zaya Nurai Island

A private island just a short ten minute speed boat ride away from the city! This is more Maldives than UAE and with its in water swings, stretches of beach and fun installations this is a perfect Instagram haunt!
