Places to visit in UAE

With its fully furnished development, spectacular skylines of great climbs, and the best beach restaurants, the United Arab Emirates has become a favorite for family vacations and city breaks. Tourist destinations such as the great sites such as Dubai's Burj Khalifa and Abu Dhabi's modern Sheikh Zayed Mosque, have taken the UAE's mark as the ultimate luxury destination. Scroll underground though, and you'll find there's much more here than skyscrapers, shops, and sandy beaches. Various locations in the UAE offer cultural fans many things to do. Descend into the Bedouin country last night on a desert before exploring the many wagons that guarded the coast long before the reigns of great heights. While for nature lovers, the desert begins where cities end, and the rugged peaks of the Hajar Mountains are on their way.

Burj Khalifa:

The Burj Khalifa is one of the most famous buildings of the United Arab Emirates and the highest point of Dubai. Not only is it the tallest building in the world, it also claims to the titles of the world's tallest building, the world's highest viewing tower, and the world's tallest height. A sightseeing trip, with its breathtaking views across Dubai, is a highlight to see for many tourists who visit, but even for those suffering from vertigo, it is good to miss it.

Sheikh Zayed Mosque, Abu Dhabi

The Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque is an ancient monument with amazing beauty. Comprising modern design and ancient art, Muslims blend in harmoniously with current styles and old ways to create new interpretations of Islamic architecture. A visit here must be made on any Abu Dhabi trip. With its interior utilizing the finest prices of gold, street tiles, and glass work and large marble, and without the mysterious white blossom that blooms far below the Emirati blue sky, it never fails to shine.

The Desert:

For those with a tedious streak, form the base line of an empty desert that connects the coastline with the exception of cities. You will find many things to do here, from a four-wheel-drive and dune-buggy trip to a sand boat, hiking and camel-riding.

Dinners at style Bedouins are a soft option if you want to experience the idyllic beauty of the desert.

Water sports such as diving, Jet Skiing, paddle boarding, and snorkeling are also available at many resorts.
