The capital of fine living - Abu Dhabi is the capital of United Arab Emirates. Ranked as the No.1 city in the Arab world in the annual survey by the Economist Group, Abu Dhabi has built a niche reputation for itself as a modern yet enchanting destination for both business and leisure.
The city has a unique mix of abundant natural beauty, traditional Arabian charm and cosmopolitan sophistication. Its exotic coastline stretches over 200 islands, gently kissed by the azure waters of the Arabian Gulf. Combined with its beautiful beaches, myriad of water sports from sailing to diving and deep-sea fishing, top international resorts, designer shopping outlets and thriving business environment, Abu Dhabi is truly the capital of life.
The city lies on a T-shaped island jutting into the Persian Gulf from the central western coast. An estimated 1,000,000 people lived there in 2000, with about an 80% expatriate population. The Emirate has approximately 70% of the country's entire wealth.
