Destination Abu dhabi

To make participation in MIK'12 as convenient as possible, we facilitate hotel and visa arrangements through third-party service providers. It is always judicious to book hotel rooms, flight and arrange for the Visa at the earliest, as hotel rooms can get booked up very quickly in UAE, especially during exhibitions.

In Abu Dhabi city you'll find all the conveniences of 21st century capital living and with some surprising additions. Don't forget to take a complimentary guided tour of the awe-inspiring Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque – one of the world's largest – and you can book into one of its many beach resorts. Fine dining abounds, as do opportunities for more affordable fare in numerous city centre outlets. Shopping is as diverse as the emirate – there's everything from marble-clad malls with haute couture brands to a textile souk (market) tucked away behind the main Hamdan Centre and a carpet souk at the Mina (Port).
Take a state-of-the-art highway to the new destinations of Saadiyat and Yas Islands. Saadiyat will be home to the world's largest single concentration of premier cultural institutions, including the Zayed National Museum, the Louvre Abu Dhabi, Guggenheima performing arts centre and maritime museum. At the existing Manarat Al Saadiyat exhibition centre you can take in the interactive Saadiyat Story and get a glimpse of how this signature destination will eventually be, visit one of many visiting exhibitions regularly hosted here and round the excursion with a mean in the Fanr restaurant. The island is also home to the fabulous Saadiyat Beach Golf Club – designed by the legendary Gary Player – this is the region's only 'ocean' course with several beach front holes.
Further afield, to the east, there's the 'Oasis City' of Al Ain – lying near the Oman border. This tranquil city – Abu Dhabi's heritage heartland – lies under the shadow of Jebel Hafeet – the emirate's tallest peak at 1,340 meters. Take a ride up the winding highway which mounts Jebel Hafeet and take a break at the three-star Mercure Hotel to savor the views. Seven oases surround Al Ain – which means spring – and water from the mountains trickles down, guided into traditional 'falaj' irrigation systems, to feed the dense date palm groves in the oases. A walk through the preserved Al Ain Oasis is a calming pastime and takes the imagination back generations. In Al Ain you can visit numerous heritage sites and museums, play golf on an all-grass course lying in the shadow of Jebel Hafeet, take the kids to Hili Fun City for a bundle of very cost-effective fun or the Arabian Wildlife Park to see some the world's last remaining white lions and tigers or visit one of numerous modern shopping malls or traditional souks.
