United Arab Emirates (UAE) is a Federal state consisting of seven Emirates, each of which is a micro state with absolute monarchy: Abu Dhabi, Ajman, Dubai, Ras El Khaimah, Umm al Quwain, Fujairah and Sharjah. Located in the North-East of the Arabian Peninsula (southwest Asia or Africa). Washed by the Persian and Oman gulfs. Bordered by Oman, Saudi Arabia and Qatar. The land border runs through deserts and is not clearly defined. The Capital Abu Dhabi. Major cities: Dubai, Abu Dhabi, Sharjah, al ain, RAS al-Khaimah.
The country is extraordinarily dry, getting only a few days of rain a year. Despite that, Emiratis use water at an alarming rate: there are broad swaths of grass in the major public parks and landscaping can be extensive in the resorts or other public places. The majority of this water comes from desalinization. Visitors do not pay for their water use. The weather from late October through mid-March is quite pleasant, with high temperatures ranging from around 27 °C (85 °F) to lows around 15°C (63 °F). It is almost always sunny. Rain can happen between November and February and can cause road hazards when it does. In the summer, the temperatures soar and humidity is close to unbearable — it is widely suspected that the officially reported temperatures are "tweaked" to cut off the true summer highs, which can reach 50 °C (122 °F), or even higher The population is incredibly diverse.
Taxis are the most important mode of transportation and are available almost all over the UAE, for a relatively cheap price compared to other major cities. The UAE has a well-organized system, and in Dubai, the taxis are regulated by the government. Most of the taxis have a fare meter, which calculates the amount you'll have to pay for your journey but they aren't the only important modes of transportation in the UAE. Buses are also very important for the public transportation network. The biggest bus networks are in Dubai and Abu Dhabi; Dubai has 112 routes and Abu Dhabi has 75. The bus networks in the other emirates mainly consist of buses connecting the emirates with each other. You can use the Nol, Hafilat, and Sayer cards (see below) to pay for the buses in Dubai, Abu Dhabi, and Sharjah, respectively.
Only some 20% of the population of the Emirates are 'real' Emiratis; Most the rest come from the Indian Subcontinent: India, Pakistan, or Bangladesh (some 50%); other parts of Asia, particularly the Philippines, Malaysia, and Sri Lanka (another perhaps 15%); and "Western" countries (Europe, Australia, North America, South Africa; 5-6%), with the remainder from everywhere else. On any given day in, say, Dubai or Sharjah, you can see people from every continent and every social class. With this diversity, one of the few unifying factors is language, and consequently, nearly everyone speaks some version of English. Nearly all road or other information signs are in English and Arabic, and English is widely spoken, particularly in the hospitality industry.
Dubai is a food lover’s paradise. The huge influx of expatriates means that one can find cuisine from every part of the globe – from spicy Indian curries to tender Iranian kebabs, rich Italian pasta and more. In the midst of all this, one might forget the local delicacies Emirates has to offer. You will find plenty of Levantine dishes on offer here, including hummus, a smooth dip made of chickpeas and sesame paste, and shawarma, a sandwich made with meat that has been roasted on a spit. However, the traditional Emirati food is its own unique cuisine that pays tribute to the area’s geography, climate and culture. Traditional Emirati meals focused on meat from animals such as camels and goats, or fish caught from the Arabian Sea. Today, you’ll see dishes prepared with chicken as well, but the local populace’s access to chicken only really occurred after the oil boom. Before that, the ancient Emiratis would cook indigenous birds such as Houbara bustards.
Football is the most popular sport in the UAE. The United Arab Emirates Football Association was first established in 1971 and since then has dedicated its time and effort to promoting the game, organizing youth programs and improving the abilities of not only its players but of the officials and coaches involved with its regional teams. The UAE national football team qualified for the FIFA World Cup in 1990 with Egypt. It was the third consecutive World Cup with two Arab nations qualifying after Kuwait and Algeria in 1982 and Iraq and Algeria again in 1986. Abu Dhabi United Group has recently purchased Manchester City Football Club. A Dubai consortium known as DIC (Dubai International Capital) is also interested in buying the English Premier League club, Liverpool F.C. The UAE are currently ranked 110th in the world according to the FIFA World Rankings.
With its full-throttle development, iconic skylines of high-rises, and world famous beach resorts, the United Arab Emirates has become a favorite for family holidays and city breaks. Landmark tourist attractions such as Dubai's towering Burj Khalifa and Abu Dhabi's modern Sheikh Zayed Mosque, have branded the UAE as an up-to-the-minute luxury destination. Scrape below the surface though, and you'll find there's more here than skyscrapers, shopping, and sandy shores. The various UAE destinations offer culture fans plenty of things to do. Delve into the country's Bedouin past on starry desert nights before exploring the many forts that guarded the coastline long before the domination of the glitzy high-rises. While for nature-lovers, the desert starts where the cities end and the jagged peaks of the Hajar Mountains are ripe for adventuring.
