About United Arab Emirates

For some time I was curious to travel to the United Arab Emirates. Finally I organized my life in order to visit places that I had heard so much about. Places such as Dubai, Abu Dhabi and the oasis city of Al Ain, or even the southern oases of Liwa.

Then and during the summer months of 2011 I visited this country a few times since it served as a stopover point for some flights I made for some other countries low cost airline company called Air Arabia – which is based in Sharjah, the emirate right next to the emirate of Dubai.

Then I had the opportunity to visit the UAE for the duration of two weeks, and visit all the existing Emirates: Abu Dhabi, Ajman, Dubai, Fujairah, Ras al-Khaimah, Sharjah and Umm al-Quwain. How did I do this? Well it was very simple, I rented a car in Sharjah, bought 2 maps and drove around freely, going where the wind took me. No plans. Just driving in United Arab Emirates.

Apart from these locations, I also drove down to the area of the dunes along with the border with Saudi Arabia in the oasis of Liwa, very beautiful and warm (I was in the month of August). Great experience.
