Overview

The United Arab Emirates is a federal State in the Eastern Arabian Peninsula in Southwest Asia on the southern shore of the Arabian Gulf. Have a joint maritime borders from the North West with the State of Qatar, to the West land and sea borders with Saudi Arabia, and from the South-East with the Sultanate of Oman. Emirates name United Arab Emirates is relative to the seven Emirates that formed a Union between them; the Emirate of Abu Dhabi, Dubai, Sharjah, Ajman, Umm Al-Quwain, Ras Al-Khaimah, and Fujairah.
Surrounded by sand dunes, the Arabian Gulf and the Gulf of Oman the country includes plenty of coastline with beaches, desert and mountains. Luxurious, multicultural, archaic, idealistic and conservative - all at the same time. An ‘open sesame’ which can become reality for everybody. From souks and shopping malls, camels and luxury limousines to manmade islands and wind towers the message is: ahlan wa sahlan – welcome!
