With its long-awaited opening scheduled for January 2017, the world famous Louvre should soon be able to call Abu Dhabi its latest home, bringing with it, world class art, exhibitions and vision to Arabian shores. Perched beautifully on Saadiyat Island (one of the city’s key cultural hubs), the Louvre Abu Dhabi is undoubtedly set to become one of the city’s key contemporary cultural highlights and not to be missed.

Al Ain may be an hour and a half’s drive from Abu Dhabi (and Dubai) but with cultural sites a plenty and now the world’s largest man-made safari, Al Ain Safari, it is well worth the journey and a must for nature and culture connoisseurs. At the new safari park, hop on board your private SUV and get up close to 400 local and African animals, which roam freely around you in their natural habitats.

Yas Island may already be pretty high on your radar, thanks to its mega mall, fine dining restaurants, theme parks and sporting facilities, but if you can’t make it for the Grand Prix or Rihanna concert in November, for fun there is the sun every day of the year. Yas Beach is a great spot for ocean lounging, watersports, brunch and come sundown beats and boogying at its hedonistic playground Liv.
