Read on if you are taking a quick trip to Abu Dhabi, and do the following to make the most of your visit.

  1. Stay in a Central, Accessible Location 

Many of the best things to do and see in Abu Dhabi are in the city. Staying within the confines of the city allows you to maximize your time in the United Arab Emirates capital. If you are looking for accommodation in Abu Dhabi, try and compare all available offers with cozycozy!

Of course, if it’s your nth time in Abu Dhabi, you might like to book a hotel outside the metropolis. Likewise, you may stay in a region outside the city if you want non-urban experiences. For instance, if you want to see the desert and activities there to be the highlight of your trip, you will find it practical to stay in the Western Region or Al Dhafra.

Otherwise, stay in the center of Abu Dhabi instead. This will let you cover more ground and do more things in the limited time you have because you won’t have to spend much time on the road.

Tip: Stay in Yas Island Abu Dhabi. Yas Island is an entertainment and leisure hub with three world-class theme parks, among many other attractions. You won’t have to leave the Island for a lot of the things you can do in Abu Dhabi. Yas Island also provides a shuttle service that will let you go around the island quickly and conveniently.

  1. Get a 1 Day Any 2 Parks Warner Bros. World Abu Dhabi Package

Whether or not you’re staying in Yas Island, visiting the world-class theme parks on Yas Island is a must-do in Abu Dhabi. To maximize your time, you can get the 1 Day Any 2 Parks package from Warner Bros. World Abu Dhabi. 

This package will give you access to Warner Bros. World Abu Dhabi and another theme park of your choice, either Yas Waterworld Abu Dhabi or Ferrari World Abu Dhabi. This allows you to tick two theme parks off your bucket list in just one day. 

If you want one full day to explore each theme park, you can get the 2 Day Any 2 Parks package instead. There’s also an Unlimited 3 Days All 3 Parks package that will give you access to all three parks: Warner Bros. World, Yas Waterworld, and Ferrari World. Of course, that will also take three days of your vacation, so unless you have nowhere else to go, you may want to stick to the 1 Day Any 2 Parks or the 2 Day Any 2 Parks package. 

Tip: If visiting the Yas Island theme parks, you should consider staying at WB Abu Dhabi Hotel. This hotel is beside Warner Bros. World and Yas Waterworld. It’s also a short distance from the hotel to Ferrari World. Additionally, it’s close to other Yas Island attractions, including Yas Mall, CLYMB Abu Dhabi, Yas Links Abu Dhabi, and the Yas Marina Circuit. 

  1. Get a Hotel and Experience Package

Some hotels offer experience bundles. Booking such a package is an efficient way of ensuring you’ll do something fun in Abu Dhabi. Moreover, go for a breakfast-inclusive hotel rate. This way, you won’t have to spend so much energy planning your breakfasts, giving you more time to get ready and prepare for your daily excursions.

Tip: Some Yas Island hotels provide free daily access to Yas Island theme parks, while some provide complimentary access to Yas Beach.

  1. Go on a Guided Tour

 Sign up for a guided tour. Choose your theme (historical, cultural, architectural, adventure, etc.), and you’re sure to find a corresponding package.

A guided excursion is more convenient and efficient than a do-it-yourself tour. For one, you can visit more worthwhile places in the little time you have. Your expert guide should also be able to call your attention to the highlights of the destinations in your itinerary.

Tip: If you love culture and architecture, get on palace school tours that’ll take you to Qasr Al Watan. Qasr Al Watan, which means Palace of the Nation, is the presidential working palace. It is a jaw-droppingly beautiful building and looks as impressive inside as it does outside.

  1. Time Your Visit With Special Events

Aside from visiting popular tourist destinations, you can take in a show or two or enjoy special privileges while in Abu Dhabi. You just have to travel to Abu Dhabi while your preferred shows or events are on or scheduled.

Tip: If you’re an all-girl group, you can take advantage of ladies day Abu Dhabi promos. Check your target destinations and see which one has a ladies day special, then time your visit to coincide with that event. You should also inquire about the schedule of shows at the Yas Island Etihad Arena Middle East’s largest multi-purpose indoor arena, to see if there’s a good show scheduled while you’re in Abu Dhabi.

Make the Most of Your Abu Dhabi Trip

There’s plenty to do and see in Abu Dhabi, including the Middle East Film and Comic Con (MEFCC) next year. This largest pop culture festival welcomes you to the Gaming Arena where you can see new and unreleased game demos, meet with the community, enter competitions and beat esports pros, etc.

To make the most of your trip, stay in the city, particularly at a hotel that offers bundled experiences, get a guided tour and experience packages, and time your visit with special shows and events.
