The largest carpet in the world is on the horizon, the fastest rotating sloops, the highest tea, the most massive lean tower and the most extensive collection of cultural buildings in the 21st century - the UAE capital Abu Dhabi is not afraid to challenge world records. Welcome to an exciting city where nothing is still standing ... maybe except heron in the mangroves.

For those looking to get involved in Gulf culture, Abu Dhabi offers opportunities to understand the history of the UAE through museums, exhibitions, tours and food. But thankfully, the heritage of the UAE is not limited or worrying. It is also an experience by strolling around the port of Dhow, haggling in the markets, absorbing the atmosphere in shisha cafés and strolling through its long and cinematic Corniche.
