I visited the United Arab Emirates in 2018 and really enjoyed this tiny Middle Eastern country. The September heat was insane (winter is a better time to visit), but the city sights were still amazing and worthwhile.
The UAE is made up of seven states, or emirates, but the two that are most popular as travel destinations are the emirates of Dubai and Abu Dhabi. Dubai is known for its resorts and shopping malls, and Abu Dhabi is known for Ferrari World and the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque.
Hopefully these pictures of Dubai and the UAE inspire your travels!
