This is an advanced and future-oriented city with a highly urban skyscraper cityscape, broad and congested streets and avenues, boulevards, parks and enterprises. Abu Dhabi has a broad network of posh hotels. However, many of its vestiges of the old day are well intact. In the shade of massive high-rise blocks of apartment you can find Middle East style souks and craft centers.
Abu Dhabi seems to have completely fallen out of the shade of Dubai, and now it is the region's major cultural, tourist and business center. Its status of the world's oil industry capital is already reflected in its cultural baggage. The Petroleum Exhibition is one of its most prominent, though less traditional sights. Other interesting objects include the Sheikh Zayed's Palace, Heritage Village, the Corniche (beach), the old market (souk), the Al Hisn Fort and the Breakwater Island.
