Welcome to United Arab Emirates

The United Arab Emirates, often referred to as the U.A.E, is a federation of seven emirates along the eastern coast of the Arabian Peninsula. It has a land border to the east with Oman and to the west with Saudi Arabia. It has coastlines on the Persian Gulf and the Gulf of Oman.

Nearly the entire country is desert, containing broad areas of sand. The east of the country along its border with Oman lie the Al Hajar al Gharbi Mountains.

Traditional forms of art and culture are preserved while modern architecture and the pace of development mix the old with the new. Most visitors come to Dubai, to see the city of iconic skyscrapers, palm-shaped islands, city-sized malls, indoor ski slopes and palatial beach resorts. However it is also possible to see the old quarter and discover traditional souks, old mosques, and Arabic tea houses.
