The United Arab Emirates provides an assortment of modern, ancient and religious attractions for tourists to see. Two cities tourists often visit to see these attractions are Dubai and Abu Dhabi. The things to see in Dubai are the Burj Khalifa, the world’s tallest building, and the Dubai Fountain. You may have seen the Bellagio Fountains in Las Vegas, but the fountain in Dubai does it bigger and better. Another place to visit is the Sheikh Mohammed Centre for Cultural Understanding. Enjoy breakfast or lunch while learning about the Islamic culture.
In Abu Dhabi, seeing and touring (for free) the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque is a favorite among locals and visitors. The beauty of this large marble building is something to behold with your own eyes, as is the largest hand-knotted carpet in the world that’s in the main prayer hall. Golfing and shopping are other popular activities in Abu Dhabi. An adventure unlike any other in the UAE is going on a desert safari. Most include high-speed desert drives by a professional driver, a hearty meal and camel rides.
