You can explore some of Abu Dhabi’s hidden spots for your weekend getaway if you’re tired of the usual park for a picnic or gathering, the mall with friends or some window shopping, the latest movies, or of using your gadgets daily at home, chatting with friends at the coffee shop, going to gym or having a walk along beach area.

Wahat Al Karama is a permanent tribute to UAE’s brave soldiers and other Emiratis who made the ultimate sacrifice while serving the Nation.
