The United Arab Emirates, a federation of seven Emirates, is a hotspot for holidaymakers looking for a glamorous escape to the desert. Each Emirate is unique and has its own personality but overall the UAE can be described as a contradiction of cultures: an Islamic state where the DJs' turntables stop spinning just before the muezzins' morning call to prayer can be heard, and where a traditional Bedouin lifestyle exists side-by-side the luxurious hotels and modern skyscrapers in Abu Dhabi and Dubai. Holidays here can offer the best of both of these worlds, from partaking in traditional excursions in the desert to living the high life at the top-notch hotel bars and restaurants. Shopping here is particularly great as well whether you want to visit the air-conditioned mega malls for top designer threads or seek out more traditional trinkets in one of the many souks.
