HAAD Abu Dhabi


Abu Dhabi is the capital of the UAE. Apart from being the capital city, it is also the second-largest emirate in the world, with an approximate population of 1.6 million people. Abu Dhabi is classified as one of the wealthiest cities in the world, with most of its revenue originating from petroleum products. This emirate accounts for approximately two-thirds of the UAE economy. Unlike Dubai, which is more Westernized, Abu Dhabi is more into cultural traditions. Abu Dhabi is also a major tourist attraction state that most people visit for cultural reasons such as visiting the Sheikh Zayed Mosque, having fun on the sandy beaches, and visiting the Yas Island and the famous Ferrari World Abu Dhabi.

Al Ain is the second biggest city in the Emirate of Abu Dhabi after Abu Dhabi. The city is located about 160 km away from Abu Dhabi. The first President of UAE, Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan, was born in this city. The city also houses the largest (30.8%) proportion of the Emirati nationals. The city is very green and is thus also known as the Green City. Al Ain is developing rapidly as a tourist destination in the region. It has several tourist attractions like the Al Ain National Museum, Hili Archaeological Park site, several restored forts, and the Al Ain Palace Museum
