Abu Dhabi, the capital city of United Arab Emirates is an interesting destination for those who want to engage with the culture of the Gulf countries. The city may lack the glitz and glamour of its illustrious neighbour Dubai, but it definitely offers unique experiences to all its visitors. The UAE capital is not just a hot and dusty city with its rich hydrocarbon wealth; the city with year-round sunshine has incredible architectural feats, affordable luxury and endless source of entertainment.
Abu Dhabi is located in the Arabian Peninsula adjoining the Arabian Gulf and is soon becoming one of the most visited cities of Middle East for its unique blend of modernity with cultural heritage. Abu Dhabi happens to be a popular layover city as well. And it would be a crime not to explore the city in that time. If you are looking for a 48 hours itinerary for things to do in Abu Dhabi, you have come to the right place.
I would say that 2 days are definitely not sufficient to experience the burgeoning city in entirety, but here is an ideal 48 hours guide for your stay at Abu Dhabi.
