Accommodation and Transportation
Arabian hospitality is the stuff of legends. In Abu Dhabi, it's a lifestyle. Here the warmth of welcome and generosity that emerged from encountering travelers in the desert generations ago, is very much a part of life today – from the traditional serving of Arabic coffee to an absolute dedication to the highest standards of modern service. Much of Abu Dhabi's charm lies in the old-world courtesies lost to many destinations. Here they prevail. Craftsmen will be only too pleased to take you through the intricacies of their centuries-old disciplines, camel herders and falconers will take an almost unprecedented interest in introducing you to their sports – giving you a chance to try your hand at these most traditional of outdoor pursuits. Henna artists will be eager to demonstrate the intricacies of their 'art' and the history of a tradition which emerged from a desire to celebrate festive occasions.
