Best things to do and see in United Arab Emirates

As one of the world’s primary tourist destinations, the UAE is virtually awash with annual festivals and events. This makes it easy to book flights to United Arab Emirates at any time of the year and be assured of participating in at least one of them. Dubai has become one of the world’s great shopping Meccas, and the highlight of the commercial calendar is the Dubai Shopping Festival. It’s one of the biggest annual events in the emirate to get great bargains on consumer goods. There’s also plenty of children’s entertainment, live music concerts and fireworks displays. The UAE also hosts one of the world’s most eminent literary festivals, the Emirates Airline Festival of Literature. It takes place in Dubai in late January and early February. The Dubai Jazz Festival has become more of a general pop event and is always hugely anticipated. Foodies look forward to the annual Dubai Food Festival, running for about three weeks from the end of March into mid-April. Horse racing is the most popular sport in the UAE, and since 1996, the Dubai World Cup has been one of the most prestigious racing events in the world. In the next neighbouring emirate, you’ll find the Abu Dhabi Festival, celebrating literature and the visual arts, and the Abu Dhabi International Dance Festival in April.

The traditional food in the United Arab Emirates is made up of classic Middle Eastern staples. Rice is the main carb, often highly spiced, accompanied by fish, lamb, or mutton, and always served with hot tea flavoured with fragrant spices like saffron and cardamom. The most popular and common Emirati meal you’ll find is the traditional shawarma – you’ll be able to buy them anywhere from street vendors to specialist shops and inside the glittering malls. Because the UAE is such a cosmopolitan place, the cuisine here is a glorious mix of French, Japanese, Indian, Chinese, Italian, Filipino and especially Lebanese fare. That said, some of the best eating can be had by seeking out traditional local dishes. Balaleat is one of the most popular, a salty-sweet dish eaten either for breakfast or dessert. It’s a combination of vermicelli with eggs, flavoured with cinnamon, orange blossom, cardamom, and pistachio nuts, and is absolutely delicious. The national dish of the UAE is khuzi, roasted mutton or lamb on rice with nuts and vegetables. You can find it at many restaurants in Dubai and Abu Dhabi. Al Harees is a great example of a one-pot Arabian meal, consisting of wheat boiled to the consistency of porridge, to which lamb, mutton or chicken are added.

Finding good United Arab Emirates flight deals will preserve more of your holiday budget to spend on visiting the vast number of tourist attractions here. Some of them are household names across the world, like the soaring Burj Khalifa, Dubai’s palm-shaped artificial islands and Abu Dhabi’s magnificent Sheik Zayed Mosque. Less well-known attractions include the ancient Al Fahidi Quarter, with its museum housing archaeological artefacts of the region going back to prehistoric times. You can go on educational walking tours of the old part of the city from the Sheik Mohammed Centre for Cultural Understanding, stopping to sample local street food as you go along. Al-Ain, bordering Oman, is the greenest city in the UAE. From here, you can go for a drive in the spectacularly rugged Hajar Mountains. The city souks (traditional Arabian markets) are quite something to behold too, especially the unbelievably lavish Gold Souk.

If you’re a British citizen or hold a British passport, you won’t need a pre-arranged visa to visit the UAE, as you’ll automatically be granted one on arrival at Dubai or Abu Dhabi airports. It will be valid for up to 30 days. Just make sure that your passport has at least one blank page to accommodate the entry stamp.
