Abu Dhabi is the capital and the second-most populous city of the United Arab Emirates (after Dubai).Abu Dhabi is a true symbol of luxury. Tourists usually conjure up skyscrapers, malls, and world-class hotels when thinking about this emirate. Sunshine and blue skies can be expected almost every day in Abu Dhabi. The city experiences a really hot and humid climate in the months of April to September when the maximum temperatures average above 40 °C (104 °F).Abu Dhabi stands in the heart of the Middle East and at the crossroads of Europe, Asia and Africa, making it a unique trading centre. The city’s rapid development and urbanization (probably also propelled by the rivalry between Abu Dhabi and Dubai), coupled with the relatively high average income of its population, has transformed Abu Dhabi to become more advanced than most other Arab cities. Abu Dhabi is rich in natural wonders too. While the emirate’s famous Liwa oasis in the south of the emirate is home to some of the largest and most beautiful sand dunes in the world, the garden city of Al Ain in the foothills of Jebel Hafeet is home to several heritage sites. The largest mosque in the United Arab Emirates was opened in December 2007. The mosque, covered with white marble from Italy and the Republic of Macedonia represents a fusion of Arab, Mughal and Moorish architecture.
