Abu Dhabi

Life in Abu Dhabi

Welcome to Abu Dhabi! It is an extraordinary place to be an expat and we hope you come to love your time here as much as the women in AWN love it.

Abu Dhabi is on the northeastern part of the Arabian Gulf / Peninsula and is the capital and the second most populous city in the United Arab Emirates (UAE). It is one of the most diverse and desirable destinations in the world. It is a modern cosmopolitan city with broad boulevards, tall and often uniquely shaped buildings, beautiful beachfront walkways and abounding in busy malls and shops.

The women who tend to thrive here are those who embrace their Abu Dhabi experience with openness and curiosity.

AWN’s mission of facilitating contact, support and networking will help in your transition to expat life. We offer exploring trips, stimulating weekly activities, social and cultural outings as well as relevant community activities. But more importantly, AWN is an organization where you can form friendships with some amazing women. We share adventures together, support and encourage one another, and just have fun.
