About the UAE

The United Arab Emirates is one of the world's fastest growing tourist and business destinations. Traditional Arab hospitality and comfortable winter temperatures are complemented by sophisticated infrastructure and world-class amenities.

Its unique biodiversity is characterized by the beauty of deserts, oases, mountains, valleys and plains, mangroves, beaches, and diversity of flora, wildlife and marine life.

In terms of population, the UAE embraces 200 nationalities from different religious and cultural backgrounds, which live on its territory in harmony and peace.

The UAE also has become a world-class venue for conferences, regional and international exhibitions and major global sports events such as the Dubai World Cup for horse-racing, the Abu Dhabi Formula One Grand Prix, the Dubai Desert Classic Golf Tournament, the FIFA Club World Cup, world class film festivals in Dubai as well as Abu Dhabi, and in conjunction with the White House, the Global Entrepreneurship Summit. The UAE has won the bid to host the 2020 World Expo.

The travel book publisher Lonely Planet selected Dubai as one of the world's top 10 travel destinations in 2020. Abu Dhabi and Ras Al Khaimah won the awards for the Middle East’s Leading Business Travel Destination and Middle East’s Leading Adventure Tourism Destination, respectively, in the 2019 World Travel Awards.

There is much to do in the UAE beyond Dubai and Abu Dhabi. First settled during the Bronze Age, Sharjah is the cultural capital of the emirates. The Heritage Area of Sharjah City includes a Maritime Museum, an Islamic Museum and museums for traditional and contemporary Arabic art, among many others.

Ajman attracts international visitors with beautiful beaches, as does Fujairah which also offers snorkeling and diving and excursions to the Musandam Peninsula, renowned for the unspoiled nature of its sheer cliffs, rocky coves and coral reefs.

Ras Al Khaima, on the border with Oman, is probably best known among local adventure travelers for the rugged beauty of the Hajjar Mountains.

The inhabitants of Umm Al Quwain, the second smallest of the seven Emirates, live mostly of agriculture and fishing. The ten small islands in its bay are home to mangroves, rare birds, giant tortoises, and manatees.
