Dhabi Breakwater and Corniche high level view

A British funfair was a major attraction on the breakwater in Abu Dhabi during 2001. In the lower right is a new restaurant in traditional UAE style. In the upper part of the picture is the Abu Dhabi Corniche or waterfront road, overlooked by apartment and office buildings.

The UAE is an interesting mix of new and traditional, local and foreign. Recently opened heritage villages and museums aim to recapture the traditional life of the UAE, most of which was swept away by modern development.
