Travel tips for United Arab Emirates

UAE

The United Arab Emirates is an alliance consisting of Dubai, Umm al-Qaiwain, Ajman, Fujairah, Ras Al-Khaimah, Sharjah and the capital Abu-Dhabi. The seven Emirates are located around the Arabian Peninsula in southern Asia. With a population of over 2 million people, Dubai is the largest province in the Federation and is popular not only with tens of thousands of migrant workers but also with tourists. The city of superlatives is world famous for some of the most spectacular buildings of recent decades, such as the Burj al Arab, the sail-shaped seven-star hotel on the Persian Gulf. In the immediate vicinity is another highlight of the Emirate of Dubai: the artificially created island "The Palm". Originally intended for the further extraction of building land, the island has developed into one of the most exclusive residential areas in Dubai. The main attraction of the emirate is the Burj Khalifa - currently the tallest building in the world. With its 828 meters and the viewing platform on the 124th floor, it offers a breathtaking view over the city and the Persian Gulf. In order to save time, it is worthwhile to book the tickets for the tour in advance and thus avoid the long queues at the entrances

Due to the relatively short distances to neighbouring Emirates, excursions from Dubai, for example to Abu Dhabi or Ras Al-Khaimah, with many German-speaking tour guides, are further highlights that underline the diversity of the UAE. Go on a jeep safari, ride a camel or let local guides show you the most beautiful places during an exclusive and private city tour - immerse yourself in the Arabian way of life from 1001 nights

The best time to visit is between October and March, the official winter. In contrast to Germany, temperatures in the Emirates only drop to a pleasant 25 degrees, whereas in summer it can get very hot, with over 40 degrees
