Abu Dhabi and Sri Lanka multi centre

From modern city to wildlife adventure

We love talking holidays and we're here to help. If you'd like our advice on how to create an amazing Abu Dhabi holiday, just give our Destination Specialists a call.

Abu Dhabi the capital city of the United Arab Emirates, known as the greener and more cultural Emirate, with tree lined streets and park lands. Take a stroll along the Corniche and take a dip in the warm turquoise waters before heading to Emirates Palace for a gold flake Cappuccino. Abu Dhabi remains true to its cultural heritage and is the perfect city to learn about the traditional Bedouin lifestyle and the religion at the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque. In contrast Abu Dhabi is still Dubai's big brother and home to the biggest indoor theme park and fastest roller coaster, with water parks, the F1 track and many golf courses spread over beautiful beach resorts. The former Ceylon, Sri Lanka is the Emerald Isle of the Indian Ocean, with rolling hills, diverse wildlife and a mixture of religions and cultures. Pick your morning cup of tea in Kandy, visit elephants drinking in the local watering hole and spot leopards in the national parks. The city of Colombo is becoming more and more cosmopolitan with some of your well known branded clothes being made in Sri Lanka. An ideal place to pick up a bargain. Touring the country is the perfect way to experience every element of this beautiful Country.

Our Experts Recommend:
  • Experiencing the culture and beauty of Abu Dhabi
  • Relaxing on the golden sand beaches of Sri Lanka
  • Touring Sri Lanka
  • Explore traditions and wildlife in Sri Lanka

Abu Dhabi

Stretching for miles along the shore of the Persian Gulf, the corniche helps define Abu Dhabi both geographically and as a holiday destination. We love this beachfront boulevard, lined with parks, luxury hotels, entertainment venues and upmarket dining. The views from Breakwater Point are spectacular, outlining Abu Dhabi with the glittering skyline on one side and the shimmering Gulf on the other.

Sri Lanka

Sri Lanka's lush plantations and aromatic Victorian factories are like a pilgrimage for tea lovers. We love driving to the central hill stations, stepping into the scenic green landscapes of Nuwara Eliya, and watching the skilful fingers of the women in the tea plantation, plucking the youngest shoots for you to enjoy Ceylon's finest cup of tea.
