Abu Dhabi has been named as one of the most family-friendly holiday destinations in the world – and we’re not surprised.

Let’s face it, the capital has lots to offer and we’re not the only ones that think so.

According to a survey by Club Med (a French travel agent specialising in all-inclusive holidays), the UAE capital ranked ninth in the world overall for being the perfect place to visit with a family.

The company compiled the rankings based on a number of factors, including average spend per holiday, the volume of social media posts and the cost of dining out.

Abu Dhabi was ranked in the top ten against 156 other cities around the world.

Budget-conscious travellers in Abu Dhabi don’t have to break the bank, either, with loads of free things to do in our city.

With Ferrari World Abu Dhabi, Yas Waterworld, Warner Bros. World Abu Dhabi and loads more to keep kids busy, why would you visit anywhere else?

You can even enjoy a free two-night stay in a top hotel in the city before the end of the year if you’re flying through Abu Dhabi with Etihad.
