Two free things to do in Abu Dhabi today: Go flamingo spotting and embrace Korean culture

Find flamingoes at Al Wathba

In a city surrounded by dry desert, it can be easy to forget that exotic wildlife actually lives around these parts – and in this case, practically in the middle of the city.

Al Wathba has a pleasant three-kilometre hike through flamingo-dotted wetlands, plus it’s easy enough to attempt with kids or a large group of visiting relatives in tow.

Open Thu & Sat 8am-4pm, last entry 2pm. Al Wathba Wetland Reserve, www.ead.ae.

Check out the Korean Cultural Center

Abu Dhabi’s Korean Cultural Center is a something of a hidden gem. The centre hosts regular exhibitions, events and classes that you can take part in.

Right now you can check out the 100 Years Ago : Does Spring Come to These Forfeited Fields? exhibition, commemorating the centenary of the Korean independence movement.

First Floor, Building 5, twofour54, Khalifa Park, uae.korean-culture.org/en/welcome (02 491 7227).
