United Arab Emirates

A sleepy collection of fishing towns for millennia, the United Arab Emirates – consisting of Dubai, Abu Dhabi, Ajman, Fujairah, Ras al-Khaimah, Sharjah and Umm al-Quwain – is now amongst the wealthiest nations in the Arab world. Dubai and Abu Dhabi in particular have undergone rapid modernisation and have an increasingly popular tourism industry. The majority of the population are expatriates due to the prevalence of international industry in the Emirati.
