An Unbelievably Awesome Environment – Come to the UAE
The United Arab Emirates (UAE), with its skyscrapers, opulent hotels, fancy malls, and stunning shoreline, is undoubtedly high on every traveller's bucket list. In addition, the UAE is an extraordinary architectural gallery, home to some of the world's top resorts and hotels. With this sky-touching architecture, the mosques, museums and the famous man-made islands all create an enticing air that draws visitors from all over the world. So, whether taking a Private Jet Charter or travelling by boat, take advantage of these unique places and destinations.
The Burj Khalifa is a soaring, sky-high landmark in Dubai and one of the most iconic skyscrapers in the United Arab Emirates. It is not only the world's tallest building (at 828 metres), but it also holds the titles of tallest freestanding structure, highest observation deck and elevator with the most significant travel distance in the world. As a result, most visitor itineraries include a journey up to the observation deck with its panoramic views of Dubai, both to wonder at this modern engineering and architectural feat and to see the dizzying views of Dubai below you.
The Dubai Fountain
The Dubai Fountain, choreographed to music, blasts water as high as 500 feet – the height of a 50-story structure. Dubai Fountain performances, designed by the people who created the Bellagio Fountains in Las Vegas, occur every day on the 30-acre Burj Khalifa Lake.
The tiny city of Sharjah, known as the country's cultural and educational hub, will not disappoint! Sharjah is where to travel to see UAE culture and art, from its magnificent University City to its many excellent museums.
Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque
The Sheikh Zayed Great Mosque is my favourite mosque in the world. Even though it is still relatively new (it opened in 2007), it has become a shining star for Abu Dhabi. The mosque is open from 9 a.m. to 10 p.m., and is entirely free to enter (men must wear trousers, and women must be covered). The world's largest hand-woven carpet (with 2.6 billion knots) and the world's heaviest chandelier (weighing 12 tons) can be found here. This is one of my favourite spots to visit in Abu Dhabi.
Hatta, a hilly location east of Dubai situated near the border between the UAE and Oman, is a terrific place for anyone wishing to escape the modernism and extravagance of Dubai and surround themselves with desert mountains, jagged peaks and traditional villages. At Hatta Historical Village, a typical mock-up village that will walk you through the history for free, you can spend some time learning about the life of the people who lived here, what it was like back then and how they were able to survive on so little.
Zabeel Park is one of Dubai's most impressive leisure offerings in terms of flora near the city centre. Go there to cool off and have some fun, whether it's the barbeques, playgrounds or the atmosphere of the theatre, or to view the nearby Dubai Garden Glow.
Al Ain is my favourite city in the entire United Arab Emirates. Part of the Emirate of Abu Dhabi, It has a rich history and magnificent architectural legacy, with many museums, monuments and historic buildings, such as fortresses, ancient ruins and palaces. The camel market and the beautiful mountain, Jebel Hafeet, located a few kilometres from the city centre, are well worth seeing. Al Ain's cultural treasures, including the Oases Areas, Hafeet, Hili and Bidaa Bint Saud, are all designated as UNESCO World Heritage Sites.
The Emirate of Fujairah is a lovely seaside town tucked away from the hectic pace of city life. It's a busy town that features both business buildings and stunning mountains and beaches. However, it is regarded as a calm refuge for inhabitants and visitors. The city oozes appeal, with its natural raw beauty, while being mostly a corporate centre and commercial hub of the UAE. It is separated from the rest of the UAE by the enormous Hajar Mountains. It offers an enchanting environment as well as a simple way of life. In keeping with its rich cultural legacy, the city is a remarkable blend of a 70-kilometre-long sandy shoreline and steep mountain ranges.
Sir Bani Yas Island
Sir Bani Yas Island is located in the Al Gharbia region of the United Arab Emirates. The Arabian Wildlife Park dominates it. Aside from that, you can explore the many archaeological monuments, such as the salt dome hills and the Christian monastery. The animals in the National Park are endangered species, with approximately 13,000 different types for you to look for. It's a tremendous joy for children and adults alike.
So, there you have it, some fantastic places to base your trip to the UAE around. And, of course, there are many more hidden gems to find, but if we revealed them all, we would be taking away the fun!
