Abu Dhabi: A Pictorial Tour A quality coffee-table book and souvenir for visitors and expatriates alike. Another in our hugely popular series of pictorial tours that also showcase Dubai, Sharjah, Oman, Qatar and Yemen. While emAbu Dhabi: A Pictorial Tourem conveys the emirate's quiet elegance, synonymous with its enduring desert heritage, it equally reveals a pulsating infrastructure. Abu Dhabi, dubbed the Manhattan of the Middle East, is typified by the towering skyline of its famed Corniche, but it also mirrors monoliths that reflect the more traditional Islamic styles surrounding them. Although chiefly a photographic book with picture-postcard views, all the photos are accompanied by informative captions. They cover everything from art and architecture, museums and monuments, souks and shopping malls, hotels and heritage sites, to the rugged splendour of the surrounding deserts and oases. From Al Maqta'a bridge, the old ruler's fort, flower-filled parks, high-tech high-rises, and the prestigious corniche, to the silence of the Liwa and The Empty Quarter, and the Oasis City of Al Ain, Abu Dhabi- A Pictorial Tour takes the reader on a photographic journey around the emirate. In some 150 images, the region's top photographers have captured the essence of an emirate proud of its heritage, yet one which plays a leading role in the economic development of the region Language: English ISBN: 9781860631788 2006, Hardcover, 144 pages, 27 x 23.5 cm
