Once you have settled in, head on a shopping tour of Abu Dhabi where one will find everything from traditional souks to mega malls offering an eclectic array of products to satisfy even the pickiest of shopaholics. There is much to buy when here; purchasing gold and jewellery are a particular favourite amongst shoppers and these glittering accessories can be found in venues such as the Madinat Zayed Shopping Centre’s Gold Souk. The large malls are where one can purchase designer clothing, watches and haute-couture outfits that cater to fashionistas looking for the latest trends. Visit the traditional souks where you have the chance to buy traditional handicrafts, spices, perfumes and even carpets which make for unique souvenirs of your visit.
