You’ll be spoiled for choice when it comes to souvenir shopping in Abu Dhabi, but our Forbes Travel Guide editors feel a box of locally grown dates are the best thing to bring home with you from your trip – and those friends and family members lucky enough to share it with you are sure to agree. Whether you prefer them covered in chocolate or soaked in molasses, this sweet fruit makes for a delicious reminder of your time in the capital of the United Arab Emirates. They’re available throughout the city, but our favorite dates seller is Zadina, which is located within Central Market Souk and offers a variety of date goodies such as jam, fudge and truffles.
