Take a trip to Abu Dhabi to discover a modern metropolis built on a strip of land jutting out into the Persian Gulf.
Your cultural itinerary includes sights like Louvre Abu Dhabi and Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque Center. Step out of the city life by going to Corniche Beach and Waterskiing & Jetskiing. There's much more to do: tour the pleasant surroundings at Saadiyat Public Beach, make a trip to Observation Deck at 300, admire the striking features of Etihad Towers, and take in the exciting artwork at Folklore Gallery.

Barcelona, Spain to Abu Dhabi is an approximately 11.5-hour flight. You can also do a combination of flight and bus. You'll lose 3 hours traveling from Barcelona to Abu Dhabi due to the time zone difference. When traveling from Barcelona in July, plan for much hotter days in Abu Dhabi, with highs around 50°C, while nights are a bit warmer with lows around 37°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 16th (Tue) early enough to go by car to Al Ain.
