332. Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates
Abu Dhabi is one of the seven Emirates in the United Arab Emirates. It’s overlooked by its much shinier sister Emirate, Dubai. Abu Dhabi does hold its own though with the world’ largest mosque and home to one of the Formula One car racing event during the year. With all these attractions and more, its worth your time to visit this desert oasis.
