|Book Description||While Abu Dhabi: A Pictorial Tour 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. This serene emirate also includes the imposing sands of the Liwa to the south and the land-locked oasis city of Al Ain tucked into the lee of the Hajar mountains, renowned for its remarkable network of aflaj (underground water channels), its archaeological remains and historical forts.|
