Just an hour drive away from Dubai, Abu Dhabi is actually the capital of the United Arab Emirates and is more cultural and traditional than its larger, more cosmopolitan neighbour. If you want the wow factor of Dubai, but still within holding the traditional Arab culture, Abu Dhabi is definitely worth considering!
