The United Arab Emirates has a rich culture and heritage that dates back to the beginning of time. The country is a constitutional federation of seven emirates – Abu Dhabi, Dubai, Sharjah, Ras-Al-Khaimah, Ajman, Umm Al-Qaiwain, and Fujairah. Abu Dhabi is the capital city.
The Emirates are home to various terrains (desert, oasis, mountains and coastal line). Many of the country’s long-standing traditions are influenced by the environment surrounding it.
