A modern Arabian city

The UAE’s capital, Abu Dhabi, is the largest and wealthiest of the seven emirates and comprises 200 islands in the Arabian Sea, some of which have undergone significant development in recent years. In a post-oil era, the emirate has emerged as a global hub for tourism and trade, featuring world-class infrastructure and attractions that are drawing ever-growing numbers of business and leisure visitors from all four corners of the globe.

With an estimated population of 1.4 million, 80% of whom are expatriates, Abu Dhabi is a multi-cultural emirate that is more diverse than some might imagine, boasting UNESCO World Heritage sites, stunning desert landscapes, cultural landmarks, stunning marine life and nature reserves. The city, located on a T-shaped island, is home to key commercial and government districts.

Khalidiya Palace Rayhaan by Rotana  is located on the Corniche, overlooking the Arabian Sea and adjacent to the Presidential Palace, which houses the emirate’s newest cultural attraction, Qasr Al Watan. The Heritage Village, Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque and Qasr Al Hosn are all close by, as are major commercial areas and the new Central Business District. For keen shoppers, popular malls are a short drive away.

Learn the secrets of one of Abu Dhabi's most vibrant districts

1.1581953-798459427

Khalidiya is one of the most vibrant parts of Abu Dhabi. It’s a part of the city where old meets new. Whether you’re looking to spend a few hours in the mall, walking the streets on a bargain hunt, looking for a place to eat or just want to spend some time on the beach, you won’t go wanting.

Where it’s located

The area is one of the bigger districts on Abu Dhabi Island, bordered by Al  Bateen to the west, Al Manhal and Al Zaab to the east and Al Rowdah to the south. The northern edge of the district runs alongside the Corniche.

The E20 – Khaleej Al Arabi Street – runs through it, making it one of the easiest areas to access.

Bad for Hotels – only the Sheraton Khalidiyah exists in the area. Parking can also be a headache.

Transport and parking

Parking Although parking is in plentiful supply, it can be a headache during weekend evenings. The car parks along the Corniche fill up quickly, and the network of backroads can be pandemonium. Most of the parking is Dh2 per hour (black and turquoise painted kerbs), but there are some premium parking areas too at Dh3 per hour (white and turquoise painted kerbs). Bus A number of bus routes run through the area. Taxis Taxis are all over the place. The Corniche is usually a good place to find them.

Naturally the beach at the Corniche is the centre point of all recreation and general merriment in Khalidiya, and so to is the surrounding park land.

Al Khalidiyah Park, on the corner of Khaleej Al Arabi Street and Zayed the First Street is well worth a couple of hours, children will enjoy feeding the ducks.

A cinema exists in nearby Khalidiyah Mall.

Those with any cultural inclination may be surprised, but there are a couple of quaint art galleries in Khalidiya. The Etihad Modern Art Gallery is a fun little place, and also features a very quirky café, perfect for chilling out in the evenings. Then there is the Ghaf Art Gallery, which is located next to Al Khalidiya Park.

The area’s obvious shopping destination is Khalidiyah Mall. With ample parking, this mall features all the usual suspects, such as Centrepoint and various High Street brands.

The back streets are a treasure trove of independent retailers. While most things are available, there is no shortage of textile shops and ones that will offer to repair your iPhone even when Apple say it can’t be done…

3 restaurants to try

Third Avenue The Third Avenue Pub is located at the Sheraton Khalidiya Hotel. An English-themed pub, it’s the ideal meeting point for friends, and a great place to watch live sports, especially football. The food menu serves typical pub favourites from burgers to Thai green curries. Phone 02 444 0444

Green Tea Green Tea is a tiny café located behind the Shining Tower. This tiny place is a close-guarded secret (well, it was). It serves the best chicken paratha wraps in the capital. It’s the ideal place to grab a quick bite while on the move – and yes, it is one of those places where your car horn can summon a menu. Phone 02 491 6336

The Living Room Behind Khalidiyah Mall is a well presented private residential complex called Khalidiyah Village. Nestling within the gated community is a tiny – and we mean tiny – café called “The Living Room”. There are only a few tables, but for superb, genuine home-cooked food, this is the place to go. Parking is limited, and it’s important to respect the neighbours. It’s intimate surroundings make it great for breakfast and lunch. Phone 02 639 6654

Abu Dhabi’s Khalidiya area guide: where to eat, shop and stay in the vibrant neighbourhood

Colour, culture and cuisine all merge together to make khalidiya an exciting location.

Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates - December 13, 2018: Al Khalidiya Park, Al Khaleej Al Arabi Street. Pictures of different parks all over Abu Dhabi. Thursday the 13th of December 2018 in Abu Dhabi. Chris Whiteoak / The National

Khalidiya is not so much a destination but an experience. Nestled in the heart of Abu Dhabi , it's a colourful and bustling series of neighbourhoods encompassing the modern, the historic, the glitzy and the gritty. If you 're a fan of street snacks, this is your ideal location , and with the Corniche about a 20-minute walk away, it 's a good area to call home.

So many places, not enough stomach space. This is the conundrum faced when sampling the food in Khalidiya. The restaurants reflect the area's true cosmopolitanism, with varie d cuisines – from the Levant to Asia and North Africa – available at various price points. You need to start with the basics and for that you should visit The House of Tea . Don't let its small size fool you, as this hole-in-the-wall cafe does a roaring trade , thanks to its paratha wraps (toppings include fried egg, chicken tikka or Nutella) and sweet karak tea. The nearby Game of Toast  is inspired by Game of Thrones and looks like it's straight out of the ritzy part of the Free City of Braavos. If you 're looking for authentic Turkish food, check out Al Afiya , with its expansive menu – the Iskender meat or chicken kebabs are amazing.

Options are available for both the intrepid or stress -free shopper. If you 're the latter, its best to visit Khalidiyah Mall (4) , which has three floors full of medium- range fashion brands, a large Lu Lu Hypermarket and cinema (Cine Royal). If you 're looking for a bargain, wear some good shoes and stroll down Darat Al Miyah (5) , a district home to hundreds of small shops selling everything from mobile phones and perfumes to Sudanese -style kand uras and Pashtun-inspired sandals. Best of all, the sales people at these stores are a fountain of knowledge for all things Abu Dhabi.

Khalidiya was viewed as one of Abu Dhabi's underrated culture hubs, but this changed with the refurbish ment of Qasr Al Hosn . Built more than 250 years ago, the former fort now hosts various heritage events and exhibitions. Technically it's in Al Hosn, but it's worth wandering over . Also, pay a visit to the Etihad Modern Art Gallery , which has a vibrant programme full of exhibitions by local and international artists. Make sure to check out its Art Souq, held each Ramadan, where you can score evocative works being sold at a decent price.

Many of the city's cheaper hotels are in Khalidiya. If you are here for business, Downtown Sheraton Khalidiya Hotel  is a solid choice and has free parking. Another good option is Oryx Hotel , as it 's a five-minute walk from the beach, with plenty of restaurants nearby. For a family holiday, check out the Khalidiya Palace Rayhaan by Rotana . The five-star resort has a large pool that overlooks the Arabian Gulf.

Plus … Khalidiya is also home to many cheap launderettes. They can be easily found in residential neighbourhoods, where you can get your clothes dry-cleaned at a great price. Zubaidah Laundry  at Darat Al Miyah is highly recommended.

For Behind The Magic, Nadiya and Kai, backed by their incredibly talented cast of singers and dancers, invite audiences back into their world to catch a rare insider’s glimpse into how all ‘the magic’ comes together. 

From TV shows to commercial campaigns, photoshoots to live tours, they will be taking us behind the lens to see things from a very different perspective, highlighting the influence of some of the greatest legends, creatives and artists of the 20th century, whose impact is still felt today among some of the most successful contemporary artists .  

Nadiya said, “I cannot wait for everyone to see our new show. It is so exciting to be able to throw a lifetime of my thoughts, visions and dreams into ‘Behind The Magic’ and to create something unique and inspiring with the most talented and incredible people”.

Kai added, “Starring in ‘Once Upon A Time’, our first headline tour, was the realisation of a lifelong dream for both Nadiya and I, a real career highlight. Now we get the chance to do it all over again next summer with our new show ‘Behind The Magic.’

‘We cannot wait to get back on stage together and entertain our fans once more and to be able bring the curtain down in my hometown of Southampton will be the icing on the cake.”
