Guide to the UAE

A federation of seven states, the United Arab Emirates, often referred to as the UAE, is located on the Arabian Peninsula, by the Persian Gulf in the Middle East. Those states, which are known as Emirates, are Abu Dhabi (the capital), Fujairah, Ajman, Dubai, Ra’s al Khaymah, Sharjah and Umm al Quwain.

Dubai Burj al arab

The Emirates are extremely popular with travellers from all over the world who come to enjoy a mix of Arab culture and liberal sensibilities. The UAE also has a huge amount of expatriates living there due to the amount of jobs created by the oil industry and those foreign workers help to ensure that the UAE has a multicultural feel. Known mostly for being an extraordinarily wealthy part of the world thanks to its extensive oil fields, its rulers are now trying to build a new economy in preparation for a future in which oil will one day run out.

That foresight is making the UAE is great place to visit with Dubai in particular benefitting from some outrageous expansion plans.  Dubai city is set to be the new Las Vegas with vast monuments being built. These will even include replicas of the world’s most famous landmarks like the Eiffel Tower, the Pyramids and the Leaning Tower of Pisa. The building boom in Dubai is showing no signs of wearing thin and it now includes the world's tallest skyscraper – the Burj Al Arab Hotel, which is some 780 metres high and was built on its own man made island.  Such wealth means that the UAE has some of the world's best hotels and the bar is being set even higher with the construction of the Armani Hotel, a boutique hotel constructed specially to the tastes of the fashion design house.

Abu Dhabi Mosque

And of course no trip to the UAE is complete without doing a lot of shopping. This tax free haven means that there are incredible deals. Prepare yourself for a special shopping experience because you will find some of the world’s most lavish malls in the Emirates. Dubai alone has more than 30 malls. Among the shopping attractions in the other Emirates is the 30 floor Sharjah mall which also has hotels and residential components included in the design.

There are many natural attractions in the UAE too and no trip to them would be complete without doing a desert safari or seeing the mountainous Hatta Wadi region. Being only five hours from Europe and around three hours away from most parts of Asia, the UAE is an incredibly convenient location which is very well connected by many world class airports. Rhino Car Hire have rental locations throughout the UAE, including Dubai and Abu Dhabi.  It is no wonder that so many people are heading to the UAE as it has everything that the holiday maker could possible want including eye popping accommodation, great food, a vibrant nightlife, sunbathing on beautiful beaches and sporting events.

Dubai Desert

For those travellers who are looking for a more budget destination away from the glitz and glamour of Dubai, the smallest Emirate of Ajman is a good option as is Sharjah. It is worth noting however that while many of the Emirates are fairly tolerant of a Western drinking culture, you will not find any bars in Sharjah.  The fact that it is also so safe to travel in the Emirates means that tourism will continue to flourish for the foreseeable future. Those who are hoping to drive there can go on the highway from Saudi Arabia in the south or Oman in the east. Worth avoiding if possible is the road between Sharjah and Dubai as it is very congested and has a toll gate in operation.
