MIDDLE EAST & AFRICA/UNITED ARAB EMIRATES
Discover United Arab Emirates
In United Arab Emirates the eye meets the unthinkable. There have been only very few places that have transformed so much in so little. About half a century ago the area was consisting of nothing but vast empty desert and sand dunes, destroyed colonial fortresses and poor fishing villages. Today it is a place of headlines, glamorous shopping centers, luxury restaurants, elite hotels, ultra-modern skyscrapers and extreme wealth.
The absolute protagonist in this show is of course the cosmopolitan Dubai. It is a place that demonstrates how wealth and determination can produce unimaginable results. From the famous 7-star Burj Al Arab and the tallest manmade structure, the Burj Khalifa overseeing the Palm Islands in the Persian Gulf to the Dubai Museum and the Dubai Fountain everything here screams prosperity.
The country's capital, and more modest, till recently, Abu Dhabi has quickly become an extremely popular destination in the region. Comprising of several islands connected by a stunning bridge designed by the famous architect Zaha Hadid, Abu Dhabi will excite you. Whether you want to make shopping, have fun, enjoy a desert adventure or simply relax on the beach, the United Arab Emirates follows your rhythm.
