The UAE (United Arab Emirates) has transformed itself into an Arabian success story. Visitors are attracted by beaches, deserts, oases, camel racing, Bedouin markets and legendary Duty Free Shopping. Each of the seven emirates bears a unique character.

Abu Dhabi is the capital of the United Arab Emirates and sits off the mainland on an island in the Persian (Arabian) Gulf. Its focus on oil exports and commerce is reflected by the skyline’s modern towers and shopping metacentres such as Abu Dhabi and Marina malls. Beneath white-marble domes, the vast Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque features an immense Persian carpet, crystal chandeliers and capacity for 41,000 worshipers.

Dubai is the Singapore of the Gulf with bustling harbours, gigantic shopping malls and bold architecture. Dubai is known for luxury shopping, ultramodern architecture and a lively nightlife scene. Burj Khalifa, an 830m-tall tower, dominates the skyscraper-filled skyline. At its foot lies Dubai Fountain, with jets and lights choreographed to music. On artificial islands just offshore is Atlantis, The Palm, a resort with water and marine-animal parks.
