Thanks to its record-breaking development, iconic skyscrapers, world-famous beach resorts, mountains, desert and various sports and entertainment events, the United Arab Emirates has become a coveted destination for family holidays and city breaks alike. A dynamic country where things are constantly evolving, the UAE is located on the Arabian Gulf, and has borders with Oman to the east and Saudi Arabia to the south, as well as sea borders with Qatar and Iran. The country is a federation of seven emirates: Abu Dhabi, Ajman, Dubai, Fujairah, Ras al-Khaimah, Sharjah, and Umm al-Quwain. Arabic is the official language, but English is widely spoken. During a trip to this part of the world, you’ll be spoilt for choice when it comes to both cultural and modern tourist attractions. Whether you’d like a relaxing holiday or something a little more adventurous, there are activities to suit. Spend a day sightseeing in Abu Dhabi with a visit to the Sheikh Zayed Bin Sultan Al Nahyan Mosque – one of the largest mosques in the world. You can also visit the Emirates Palace and the Al Ain zoo and aquarium.
The Al Qasba District of Sharjah is worth a visit, having become a hub of business, culture and entertainment. To learn more about the lives of Emirati people, the Ajman museum and cultural centre is a great spot, as is the National Museum of Ras al-Khaimah. Visitors to Ras al-Khaimah can also indulge in everything from water sports and desert experiences to golfing and historical sites. If you’d prefer a more therapeutic break, Umm Al Quwain (UAQ) is the perfect location for relaxing and listening to the waves, and it’s also a great spot for sailing. Fujairah also has more of a mellow vibe, and it also happens to be the home of the UAE’s oldest mosque – Al-Bidyah.
