Incentive Travel: Amazing Abu Dhabi

Abu DhabiIt's been called the richest place on earth and the reason is clear...oil. In Abu Dhabi, visitors can stroll along the Corniche, view gleaming skyscrapers with futuristic designs and heritage buildings. You'll want to visit the Qasr Al Hosn fort that was built in 1761.

The Abu Dhabi Heritage Village, pictured to the left, is a replica of a traditional Bedouin desert camp.

Saadiyat Island, where the Louvre and Guggenheim Abu Dhabi will be situated, is taking shape.

Abu Dhabi is the home of Ferrari World, the word's only Ferrari themed amusement park. Annual events include the Formula One Grand Prix and the Abu Dhabi Film Festival.

Desert Camp Abu Dhabi

Abu Dhabi has facilities for conferences, business meetings, corporate events, and sales incentive trips. Event planners can select from a range of resorts, hotels and event venues.

Shangri-la's Hotel Qaryat Al Beri is a stunning beach resort and, in the desert, Qasr Al Sarab Desert Resort adds a luxury touch to Bedouin traditions.

Emirates Palace gives guests a glimpse to the lifestyle and amenities enjoyed by Sheiks at their palaces. You never know who you'll see. The first time I was there, a man talking on a cell phone walked across the lobby. It was the Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi.

Team events range from desert safaris, cooking team building, and business teambuilding simulations that involve desert survival or drilling for oil in the desert.
