United Arab Emirates

 

The United Arab Emirates are born of the union of seven emirates rulers, when the British left the Gulf. The country is a land of contrasts: the mountains, beaches, desert, oases, camel racing, bedouin markets and a large number of hotel infrastructures. The UAE capital is the city of Abu Dhabi, which is increasingly making more thrust on cultural tourism in the area, moving away from the offer of the pearl of the country, the small Dubai. A frenetic city, where money runs everywhere, glamorous, fancy restaurants, expensive shops and malls, a bustling nightlife, late model cars and the only seven-star hotel in the world with its ultramodern architecture. Dubai is luxury, future and city's most unexpected of the Middle East.
