Stopovers to Australia: Abu Dhabi
Before you hit the outback, find adventure in the desert of a very different kind.
Thrill rides (see sidebar), majestic mosques, stunning golf courses, and a wonderful resort in the middle of the desert. Abu Dhabi is epic in almost every sense of the word – including the shopping, nightlife and dining.
