A Halal school trip to Abu Dhabi offers your students the opportunity to explore one of the most important cities in the Middle East!

Capital of the United Arab Emirates, Abu Dhabi is also the second most populous city in the country, after Dubai. This forward-thinking city is also one of the best places to explore the region’s culture. The Louvre Abu Dhabi is unmissable for those with a keen interest in art, while the Falcon Hospital is a fantastic choice for those who want to delve deeper into the Emirati culture.

Abu Dhabi is also home to magnificent Islamic architecture. The Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque references all the great Islamic empires, while also boasting striking contemporary artistry. And the result of this combination means that this blinding white marble mosque is both awe-inspiring and an unforgettable symbol of Islamic faith.

Need help?

I always learnt more outside of the classroom than I did in a classroom setting, but as a child did not get that many opportunities. Working in school travel has given me the chance to help others like me to get the most out of their school years by travelling and learning away from the classroom.– Will Jehu Tour Consultant
