The first location is the beautiful Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque, which is a real exhibition of the Islamic world’s architecture.

Here you can also notice the world’s largest hand-knotted carpet, 82 domes, chandeliers, and flower-patterned designs.

Thereafter, head to Marina Mall for your lunch break where you can dine in from mall restaurants or the food court.

Later, visit Qasr Al Watan which is a tribute to the region’s Arabian heritage and craftsmanship. Gain an insight into governance, knowledge, and artistry that shaped the very nation of UAE.

The tour ends as you are accompanied back to your hotel or select location in Abu Dhabi.
