United Arab Emirates Travel

United Arab Emirates

The United Arab Emirates (UAE) consists of 7 different nations each with their own unique history and cultural identity, although only a handful trip off the tongue of most travelers. The capital, Abu Dhabi, together with Dubai might suggest a visit to the UAE is all about the city's good life. But drive in any direction for just a few kilometers and the likes of the Burj Khalifa make way for villages half-lost to the desert sands of Umm Al Quwain, then the oases of Sharjah, the pristine mountain slopes of Ajman, and the beaches and coral reefs of Ras Al Khaimah.

Far more than just a glitzy selection of showpiece attractions, at its heart Dubai remains a traditional culture. So while you’ll find malls the size of small towns, there are also long-established souks. For every exclusive bar, there’s a dhow bobbing gently in the waters of the harbor.

Sharjah

Rather than bulldozing its heritage in favor of glass and steel tower blocks, the ‘Heart of Sharjah’ project has sought to maintain the center of the emirate as it always has been. As a result, it’s awash with cultural delights, from heritage museums to the real-life customs of Sharjah’s souks.

Ajman

The smallest member of the UAE family, Ajman’s visitors come primarily to bask in the guaranteed sun of the emirate’s fine beaches. Come evening, the seafront corniche sees a steady stream of street food pop-ups, while hidden among the backstreets are a range of small but intriguing museums.
