Description

Centrally located on the crossroads between Europe and Asia, the United Arab Emirates (UAE) consists of seven desert states or emirates: Abu Dhabi; Dubai; Sharjah; Ajman; Umm al-Quwain; Ras al-Khaimah; and Fujairah. The UAE is the regional business hub of the Middle East, and mostly man-made attractions form the basis of its leisure tourism product. It offers uber-modern luxury with a high standard of service, blended with an exotic touch of Arabian culture and year-round sunshine.
