One of the Middle East’s richest cities and one of the most modern cities in the world, Abu Dhabi isn’t exactly on the tourist map. However, in its role as a main entry point for the entire region, it receives a lot of visitors, who, if they’d stop to look around, would find a rather charming city hiding beneath a sea of development.
Just forty years ago this was a tiny town where fishing was the main industry. In those four short decades it has grown into an international city of glass and concrete gleaming spires.
