The United Arab Emirates is a modern and dynamic country that attracts hundreds of thousands of tourists annually. The UAE has become on the top list of preferred destinations in the world thanks to the excellent infrastructure, top attractions, luxurious facilities and overall the higher levels of safety.

Tourism is one of the UAE fastest growing sectors. The UAE consists of seven emirates which are: Abu Dhabi, Dubai, Sharjah, Ajman, Umm al Quwain, Ra's al Khaymah, and Fujairah. Each and every emirate has its own charm. In this article I will try to talk about some of the most amazing and a must see places in each emirate.

First of all, the Abu Dhabi, the capital, has recently opened Louvre Abu Dhabi, an art and civilization museum located on the Saadiyat District Island, with 8,000 square meters of galleries, making it the largest art museum in the Arabian Peninsula. Artworks from around the world are showcased at the museum, with particular focus placed upon bridging the gap between Eastern and Western art.

The world-famous Dubai is the most common entry point for travelers. It is the transport and commerce center of the UAE. Burj Khalifa is one of the country’s most famous buildings.

Not only it is the world's tallest building, but also it lays claim to the titles of tallest freestanding structure in the world. There is also the Deira district, with its world-famous gold market and old fish market.

Dubai is also the home of Burj Al- Arab, the famous landmark that was built by Korean companies. It also has the Global village, which claims to be the world's largest tourism, leisure, shopping and entertainment project.

It is the region's first cultural, entertainment, family and shopping destination. Every year, it has over 5 million visitors. Dubai Marina is an affluent residential neighborhood known for The Beach at JBR, a leisure complex with al fresco dining and sandy stretches to relax on. Smart cafes and pop-up craft markets line waterside promenade Dubai Marina Walk, while Dubai Marina Mall is packed with chain and luxury fashion brands. Upscale yachts cruise through the large man-made marina, where activities range from jet-skiing to skydiving. Dubai has many theme parks such as Lego land, Bollywood park and others.

Ras Al Khaima, has one of the best sea resorts in the UAE such as Rotana sea resort and Ras Al Khaima resort. It also has a very high mountain that has snow on the top of it. It’s really one of the most unique places that you can see real snow in an area that temperature reaches over 50 degrees.

If you really want to enjoy diving, you must pay a visit to Fujairah. It’s really famous for fabulous beaches and amazing seafood. It also contains high mountains which is just perfect for hiking lovers. Fujairah also has the oldest mosque in the UAE, Al-Bidyah.
