Abu Dhabi named world's best large city!


"Abu Dhabi has been named the best liveable large city in the world, fending off a field of tough international competition. The country’s capital city took gold in the International Awards for Liveable Communities, in the Cities with Populations Over 400,000 category — beating out 11 other finalists, including Ankara and New Taipei. An Abu Dhabi Municipality spokeswoman said many people were surprised with just how accomplished the UAE capital was, because it did not have the same profile as many big cities. ‘People were very, very impressed. I don’t think people realise how much is going on in Abu Dhabi, it’s a very low profile city." - Time Out Abu Dhabi, December 2012

Congratulations Abu Dhabi! I can’t think of anywhere else I’d rather be living & working.
