Things to Do After Picking Up Your Abu Dhabi Airport Car Rental

Abu Dhabi is a wonderful area that brings together the beauty of the desert landscape and the rich history of Arabian culture. Whether you are visiting for a few days or much longer, there are plenty of places to visit after you have made a quick stop at the Thrifty Abu Dhabi airport car rental. The area offers enticing cuisine, unique desert views, and attractions that are fun for the whole family.

Al Badeyah

For those who want an authentic Arabian experience, Al Badeyah Eyes Tourism (about 12 km from the airport) offers visitors the chance to delve into UAE traditions while enjoying desert safari and camping. The desert camp offers different safari services, including an overnight option and a quad bike adventure tour. This camp is family oriented, promoting a safe experience for you and your children. 

The Corniche

Though Corniche Road is a short trip from the Thrifty Abu Dhabi airport car rental (about 35 km), the scenic trip is worthwhile for those who appreciate the stunning beauty of the waterfront. The Corniche is a beautifully manicured waterfront area where visitors can take a leisurely stroll or bike ride to appreciate the architecture of Abu Dhabi or just spend time on the beach with family.

Yas Waterworld Abu Dhabi

If you are looking for more fun in the water after leaving the beach, check out Yas Waterworld, just a short drive (13 km) from the airport. This waterpark’s theme was developed specifically for this unique space, and it pays tribute to the pearl-diving heritage of UAE. The park offers 43 rides and slides that the whole family can enjoy.  Some of these attractions are one-of-a-kind, including the world’s longest, fastest waterslide.
