UAE Travel Guide

UAE, the United Arab Emirates, is one of the most popular tourist destinations in the world, especially Dubai and Abu Dhabi. Travelers would be well advised to read this UAE travel guide and carry a UAE tourist map to find out all that they need to know about the country. The story of UAE’s rise to power and stardom is an interesting one. From being a small backwaters country, with fishing villages like Dubai, it has now become one of the most influential countries of Asia. The country is a federation of seven emirates, namely Abu Dhabi, Dubai, Sharjah, Ajman, Fujairah, Ras al-Khaimah and Umm al-Quwain. Abu Dhabi is the capital of UAE and a major focal point for UAE tourism.

The country is bordered by Oman on the east, Qatar on the west, Iran on the north and Saudi Arabia on the south. A unique fact about UAE is that the country is home to a mere 1.4 million Emirati citizens, whereas the number of expatriates is around 8 million. Emirates such as Dubai and Abu Dhabi are well known for their modern man-made marvels and advanced technology. One of the top tourist attractions in UAE, Dubai is also known for its myriad shopping opportunities in terms of fairs and festivals, where people from all over the world gather to purchase the latest gadgets at the lowest prices. 

Tourism in UAE takes you to many attractions, such as the Burj Khalifa, from the observation deck of which one can allegedly see entire Dubai. It is the tallest building in the world and has a dozen other such epithets assigned to it. The Atlantis, another must visit, is also a man-made marvel that is worth a visit, being an artificial island that was created on land reclaimed from the sea. But that is not all that the UAE is famed for man-made marvels! Instead, there are hundreds of natural wonders in the country as well as, such as the sun-kissed beaches, the exotic deserts, the towering mountains and so much more.

From the souks of Dubai that still carry the old world charm of an ancient civilization to the modern day shopping malls and multiplexes of Sharjah that leave little to the imagination, UAE should be a must on every traveler’s list. The best time to visit UAE is spring and fall seasons i.e. April-May and September-October. However, December through March, when the temperatures are lower, is the most popular time to visit the United Arab Emirates. 


Although a small country, the UAE has a number of unique places, be it natural or man-made, that make it one of the most interesting places to visit in the world. It doesn’t matter if you are on a honeymoon, a family vacation or a solo trip, this country has something or the other to offer for people of all preferences and budget. Make sure to read this UAE tour guide thoroughly to find out exactly how to explore the country to its full potential. 

Whether you're standing in the shadow of towering Burj Khalifa in Dubai or modern Sheikh Zayed Mosque in Abu Dhabi, the UAE attractions draw in all kind of tourists. Be it a romantic getaway with your better half or a family vacation, the UAE is a wonderful holiday destination. So wait no more and apply for a UAE visa to visit this glamorous gulf country. Dubai International Airport (DXB), Abu Dhabi International Airport (AUH), and Sharjah International Airport (SHJ) are major international airports in the UAE.

How to Reach UAE

Read about the best & quickest routes to save time & money, as suggested by our travelers

By Air

There are several airports in UAE, out of which 10 are international airports that offer connectivity to destinations all over the world, be it Europe, Africa or Asia. The busiest airport in UAE is the Dubai International Airport, followed by the Abu Dhabi International Airport and the Sharjah International Airport. Some of the other international airports of the country include Ai Ain International Airport, Fujairah International Airport, Al Bateen Executive Airport, Dalma Airport, Dubai World Central - Al Maktoum International Airport, Ras Al Khaimah International Airport and Sir Bani Yas Airport. Several airlines serve these airports and offer regular as well as seasonal flights from almost all major destinations of the country. As far as your answer to how to reach UAE is concerned, the best way is by flights, which are pretty affordable and save a lot of time when your main concern is sightseeing and shopping.

By Train

The national railway of UAE is the Etihad Rail, which connects the 7 emirates of the country to each other. With air-conditioning and free Wi-Fi in all the stations across the country as well as in most of the trains, the railways of UAE are a lavish affair indeed. However, there is currently no rail connections between UAE and other countries, although it is being considered that the service of Etihad Rail be extended to Riyadh in Saudi Arabia. But until that happens, there is no rail connectivity between UAE and other countries.

By Road

The only country from where UAE can be directly reached via roads is Oman. If coming from other countries such as Bahrain and Qatar, UAE is still easy to reach but one has to enter Oman first. If you are looking to reach UAE by road from a city in India, it is possible but the effort and the money spent would surely not be worth it. In addition, travelers would have to get visas in advance from many other countries that would have to be crossed in order to reach UAE by road.
