Abu Dhabi Tourism & Culture Authority (TCA Abu Dhabi) is presenting a vast range of upcoming initiatives, events and activities to welcome residents of Saudi Arabia to experience the emirate’s unique heritage, culture and traditions throughout the course of 2017.

 

The campaign underscores Abu Dhabi’s position as a leading destination for regional travellers wanting to experience a diverse selection of assets that provide original and attractive cultural experiences.

“The GCC, and especially the Saudi market, has continuously been one of our key target markets, providing encouraging prospects as well as a natural convergence of culture, language, customs and tradition between our communities,” H.E. Ghobash said.

 

“Our unique destination ensures that we provide a comprehensive range of concepts for leisure tourism, within which the Emirate of Abu Dhabi promotes high quality family entertainment products with exciting destination attractions such as those on Yas Island, including Yas Waterworld, Ferrari World Abu Dhabi, Yas Mall and the Yas Viceroy hotel.”

 

Abu Dhabi is offering special deals and packages specifically for travellers from the region throughout the year, entailing unmissable discounts, free entrances to theme parks as well as other offers on a vast array of recreational options.
