The UAE consists of several different Emirates, each with their own vibe and culture.It is a growing tourist destination because it offers many things that cannot be found anywhere else.



Dubai hosts two huge shopping festivals every year, which attract thousands of shoppers from all over the world. Even when these festivals are not happening, shopping in Dubai is unparalleled. Massive luxury malls that house every designer brand you can think of are common, but more traditional Souqs with their traditional feel also exists. Newer, hip outdoor malls are also growing in popularity. Whether you are looking for a designer handbag or a good bargain, shopping in the UAE will be perfect for you.



No tourist destination can quite compare to the level of luxury offered by the UAE. Though Dubai is the main luxury tourist destination in the UAE, the other Emirates also have plenty to offer to lavish travellers. Whether it is with gourmet food or opulent accommodation, the UAE has it all. If you are looking for a Resort in Abu Dhabi that will allow you to stay in the lap of luxury, there are plenty of options, such as Anantara Sir Bani Yas Island Al Yamm Villa Resort.

Museums and Art Galleries

The Louvre Abu Dhabi opened recently, putting the UAE on the map worldwide for art lovers.

There are plenty of smaller museums and art galleries that focus on local culture, and will certainly make for an interesting and educational experience.



The culture of the UAE is an incredible mix of traditional and modern. Sharjah is a testament to this culture, and has been crowned the cultural capital of the UAE and the capital of Islamic culture.
