United Arab Emirates (UAE): Introduction
A holiday in the United Arab Emirates is like no other. A gleaming, modern country on the edge of the Persian Gulf, the United Arab Emirates (UAE) is made up of seven member states, the best known of which is the glittering Dubai. Like many Middle Eastern states, its wealth is based on oil reserves, but the UAE has one of the most developed economies in Asia. The amazing development and endless possibilities here allow you to visit things you wouldn't have dreamed possible, such as a ski slope within a shopping mall, or a gigantic island shaped like a palm tree stretching out into the ocean. An UAE holiday features wonderful high-class hotels and great opportunities to explore the surrounding desert landscapes. As for the shopping, it’s out of this world. Dubai is known as the “shopping capital of the Middle East” for good reason. From haggling in souks to gleaming air-conditioned department stores, it’s all here. There’s culture too, from exploring ancient ruins to international concert stars, there’s something for everyone on an UAE package holiday.
An United Arab Emirates holiday has everything Western travellers might expect. Dubai has five-star cuisine, Gary Rhodes and Gordon Ramsay have opened restaurants here, as well as street food from all over Asia and many familiar Western restaurants. There are amusement parks, amazing golf courses, and more greenery than you might expect. If you are looking for sun and sand, you’ll find it in the spectacular resort of Jumeirah Beach, if you’re looking for a little more history, you can find it in the old town of Dubai City. The UAE is a great place for a family holiday too. Many commercial and public places in Dubai have a section specially set aside for children. Playgrounds and arcades abound and children of all ages will want a camel ride.
