The 5 must-see sights in Abu Dhabi - The best of the lot

Abu Dhabi is one of the most luxurious holiday destinations on earth and if you want a slightly unique twist to your holiday, here are some of the best but lesser-known attractions in Abu Dhabi.


Robot Camels

There was a time in the world where camel racing events had children acting as jockeys, but since it is illegal to let kids participate in this sport now, Abu Dhabi went one step ahead and stuck some robots on the camel's hump. Therefore, if you ever feel like watching something out of an experimental science fiction movie, you definitely must visit the camel race tracks found in Abu Dhabi and watch these machines ride the desert animals. Regardless of the type the traveller you are, this activity will definitely interest you. If you are staying at an Abu Dhabi five star hotel the likes of Anantara Eastern Mangroves Abu Dhabi Hotel, this would be easily accessible for you.


Automobile junkies

If you are someone who loves the mechanics of a car and wants to learn about everything and anything to do with these vehicles, then the National Automobile Centre in Abu Dhabi is the best place for you to go as it has some of the most impressive automobile creations on earth. At this centre, you will find everything from giant jeeps to plus-sized trucks. An average truck found in this centre would definitely be at least four to five feet taller than you.


Dressing up for fun

If you like a fantasy to cosplay and dressing up for fun as an anime character or your favourite superhero then the clubs in Abu Dhabi and the conventions that happen would be entertainment that you might be interested in. Before you plan your trip, make sure you check out the times of the year that this happens so that you can time your vacation accordingly.


Visit the Wild, Wild West

Paintballing is an activity that everybody in the world knows of and most of them love it too. But when you are in Abu Dhabi, this game is taken to the next level as, instead of running through bushes and into forests, you will be taken into a mini town that is a replica of the Wild West. You will have to hide in old bars and saloons, and rob a bank or two while you search for your friends to shoot them down.



If this activity is something that has always interested you, but jumping off a building or a flying aircraft, into nowhere chases the living lights out of you, you might have to make a stop at the Abu Dhabi Country Club. Here, you will find a wind tunnel that blows air upwards at an impressive speed for you to experience what it is like to jump off a plane and get pulled down to the earth with the natural earth's gravitational force. You need not be afraid here at all!
