Spread over an area of 60,000 square kilometres, the Al Gharbia region in the Emirate of Abu Dhabi accounts for more than 70% of the total land mass of UAE in which are located its seven main cities. Although politically belonging to the UAE, this region is in close proximity with the borders of neighbouring Saudi Arabia and Qatar and its administrative capital is located at a place called Madinat Zayed. In spite of the large area, not many live here and thus it has retained its historic beauty.
Al Gharbia, up to very recently, hasn’t had any real prominence – and the fact the Al Gharbia is being talked about as an area is due to the huge amount of marketing it is getting from the Abu Dhabi government. Actually, if you look to the future, 50 years from now, Al Gharbia could continue down the route of Arabian haven. But now that the tourist board have grasped this area, expect great things from the region. As a result, a sustainable plan of development was chalked out which pivoted on infrastructure and was an encouragement for the tourism industry in the region.
Colloquially termed as the region which is the meeting point of the land and the sea, Al Gharbia is a perfect blend of rich cultural heritage and economic growth. The area offers attractive and lucrative investment opportunities while retaining its old world charm so that people can cherish their traditional lifestyle while enjoying the benefits of increased spending power.
