UAE Tourism Tips

UAE Geography and Climate 

Made up of seven emirates, UAE has three distinct geographical zones. The flat coastal plains, the rolling sand dunes and a rugged mountain range. The sand dunes extend into the desert and eventually lead to the Empty Quarter. At 1,527 metres high, Jabal Yabir is UAE’s tallest natural point.

Since the UAE is located in the Arabian Peninsula’s northern desert belt, it receives scarce and sporadic rainfall. Temperatures can climb as high as 40 °C during the day and the nights can be freezing. It rains in UAE between October to April while May to September is the dry period. The emirates experience strong dust and sand storms known as Shamals.

UAE Culture and Tourism 

Though predominantly an Islamic country, UAE has a beautiful blend of global cultures. People of over 200 nationalities call UAE home. Before oil was discovered, oasis farming, fishing, pearling and trading were the main commercial activities. Now tourism is the big crowd puller. 

For many years Dubai was the face of UAE tourism. But that is changing now as other emirates like Sharjah and Abu Dhabi are catching up fast. From Dubai’s Burj Khalifa to Abu Dhabi’s gorgeous Sheikh Zayed Mosque and Sharjah’s Art Museum, your UAE tour can be a beautiful prism that splits up your holidays into a rainbow of colourful experiences. Culture is a big part of UAE tourism, but is not restricted to it. In UAE even the desert is a playground where your escapades will make for an ultimate adventure holiday.
