Abu Dhabi's modern conceptual architecture stands tall over the warm Persian Gulf, highlighting Abu Dhabi's dramatic transformation from a tranquil fishing village to the richest city in the world, in the space of 50 years. There is an abundance of green parks and boulevards throughout the city, but just beyond Abu Dhabi's buildings and shopping centres, awaits breathtaking scenes of untouched desert.
