The United Arab Emirates
For many, the United Arab Emirates is all about the skyscrapers of Dubai, wild islands shaped to order, city-sized shopping malls, indoor ski slopes and opulent beach resorts. But behind the glitz are six other emirates with their own unique charm.
To the south, Abu Dhabi, the country's capital and a wealthy oil emirate, is becoming a renowned center for culture, sports and entertainment. Beyond its borders lies the vast Al-Gharbia desert, where only the dunes rustle as they slowly move towards Saudi Arabia.
In the north, Sharjah has the best museums in the country, while Adjman and Umm al-Qaywayn give a glimpse of life in the emirates before oil, and Ras al-Khayma is developing its tourist infrastructure. On the edge of the clear waters of the Gulf of Oman, Fudjayra has the appeal of the most beautiful beaches and best diving sites.VISION Destination simplify your search with our collection of the very best hotels in United Arab Emirates.
