United Arab Emirates
Dreaming between desert and sky, modernity and mysticism
The United Arab Emirates is best known for the dazzling, yet hypermodern and traditional Dubai and its skyscrapers, palm-shaped islands and vast desert landscapes. North of Dubai, Sharjah is the UAE’s arts and heritage center, while Ras Al Khaimah is all about the beach.
Abu Dhabi, the capital of the UAE, is a cultural center and a very popular vacation destination.
The magical silence of the gently gliding dunes in the Rub Al Khali (Empty Quarter) desert will give you an unforgettable experience.
The eastern part of the UAE in the Hajar Mountains provides a very different and tranquil atmosphere – in contrast to the kaleidoscopic, science fiction-like modern Dubai and Abu Dhabi.
The United Arab Emirates (UAE) is a destination that has something for everyone. From luxurious accommodations to thrilling outdoor adventures, there’s no shortage of things to do and see.
We have partnerships with many accommodations and resorts and would like to feature the following for this destination:

Special things to do in the UAE
The United Arab Emirates is a hub for jewelry enthusiasts, with Dubai being particularly known for its gold market. You’ll find intricate designs and beautiful gemstones, heading to the Gold Souk in Dubai to browse the wares of more than 300 retailers.
A morning desert safari is something not to miss: hop into a 4×4 vehicle and head out into the dunes, then ride a camel to get into the desert mood. For a truly immersive experience, consider booking overnight desert camping under the stars. Enjoy a barbecue Beduin dinner, and participate in activities like camel rides, falconry, and sandboarding.
While on the seaside you can book a fishing tour to try your hand at catching tuna, kingfish, and more. Some fishing tours even include cooking classes so you can learn how to prepare your catch. If you’re looking for a fun activity that’s also a great workout, try stand-up paddleboarding (SUP). The UAE’s calm waters make it a great place to try this sport. You can rent a paddleboard and explore the coastline on your own, or book a guided tour.
Abu Dhabi has a vibrant nightlife scene, with plenty of options for those who want to dance the night away. Check out clubs like MAD on Yas Island or Caramel in the St. Regis Saadiyat Island Resort for a night out you won’t forget.
