Why Abu Dhabi?

At the ITB Asia in Singapore late last year, we posed this question to Gillian Taylor the Business Events Manager of Abu Dhabi Tourism Authority. She explains how Abu Dhabi differs from other parts of the UAE, what travellers can expect and even answers whether the Hollywood movie, Sex in the City 2, was really filmed in Abu Dhabi or not.

At the Conde Naste Traveler 2010 World Savers Congress, which took place for the first ever time outside of the United States of America, and was part of TravelRave in Singapore, we spoke with Mr Lee L. Tabler, the CEO of the Abu Dhabi Tourism Development & Investment Company to learn more about Abu Dhabi. Watch the movie below:
