First Time in the United Arab Emirates
The country’s capital of Abu Dhabi is home to the spectacular Sheikh Zayed Mosque, where Muslims and non-Muslims alike can enjoy a tour. Other attractions include Ferrari World, Yas Island, and the Emirates Palace. Dubai is known for the towering Burj Khalifa, the tallest building in the world, and the decadent Burj al Arab. The colourful souks are local markets that provide a great alternative to the huge malls. Head to Liwa Oasis and marvel at some of the world’s biggest sand dunes, try dune bashing, and ride a camel. Visit the Hajar Mountains for ancient sites and rock formations. Families should head to Dreamland and Happyland in Umm al Quwain.
