With the new race track for Formula One open in Abu Dhabi, it brings a new venu available for Grand Prix afficianados.
The whole set up is amazing from the parking lot, inside, the stands and, of course, the excitement of the cars speeding before your eyes
A traditional activity still practised is falconry, known as the 'sport of sheikhs'. Visitors can witness displays that illustrate the speed and precision of these regal birds of prey, and even have the chance to try the sport themselves
Camel racing remains a major activity in Abu Dhabi and provides visitors with a unique opportunity to see this ancient - and highly competitive - sport at close quarters. Races are held on Thursday and Friday mornings during the winter months at the Al Maqam Camel Racetrack, just 45km outside Abu Dhabi, and at Al Ain Camel Racetrack, with additional races often held on public holidays.
Besides watching camel racing, visitors to Abu Dhabi can also enjoy the memorable experience of riding the 'ship of the desert' at certain heritage sites and on the desert safaris organised by Abu Dhabi's tour companies.
