United Arab Emirates

Any holidays to the United Arab Emirates will involve luxury. That is simply what this country is all about. It has all the right ingredients for the perfect getaway, offering visitors the sea, sand, sun and sports as well top-class accommodation and eating establishments. Mix this with intriguing customs and traditional culture and you are certain to experience a holiday like no other.

There are seven emirates that make up the United Arab Emirates. The largest of them is Abu Dhabi, which occupies more than 86 per cent of the country’s total landmass. The city is located on a small island that is about nine miles long and five miles wide and is connected to the mainland by the Mussafah and Al Maqta bridges.

Abu Dhabi provides guests who take their holidays to the United Arab Emirates with architecturally fascinating traditional mosques, futuristic skyscrapers and tree-line boulevards. The city is also a Mecca for shopping with its various malls, markets and nearby soqus.

Holidays to the United Arab Emirates should have you visiting the city of Sharjah. Named the cultural capital of the Arab world by UNESCO, Sharjah is home to many impressive museums, and remains committed to its culture, art and heritage.

One of the most naturally beautiful areas in the United Arab Emirates is Fujairah. Though it occupies only 1.5 per cent of the country’s landmass, it remains the only emirate that has its 90 km of coastline positioned entirely along the Gulf of Oman. This tranquil region is full of sweeping valleys, jagged mountains and stunning beaches.

If you are taking holidays to the United Arab Emirates, consider including the tiny emirate of Umm al-Qaiwain. It can be found situated between Ra’s al-Khaimah to the northeast and Sharjah to the southwest. Umm al-Qaiwain City, which is the capital, rests quietly along a narrow peninsula that is surrounded by Khor Umm al-Qaiwain, which is a large creek. The area is still known for its traditional occupations of date cultivation and fishing. Visitors here can enjoy visiting the seven forts, one of which remains flanked by cannons. It is an ideal place to enjoy endless clean beaches and remote tranquillity.

Climate

Holidays to the United Arab Emirates can easily be enjoyed any time of the year. However, if 35 C is too hot, then it may be best for you to enjoy your visit during the months of October to May. October days can still bring hot weather, but it is a time when the evenings are cool. The months of November to February are exceptionally cooler, with daytime temps reaching 24 C. December to March is when the United Arab Emirates sees most of its rainfall.

Currency

Your United Arab Emirate holidays will not require any particular currency. It is run as a free, open economy without any currency regulations.
