The smooth surface of the rolling dunes of fine-grained sand dunes is only occasionally graveled by the tracks of camels and Bedouins on their way to the market in an oasis town. On the coast, skyscrapers and luxury hotels tower in imaginative designs that are reflected in the shiny waters of the Persian Gulf. The United Arab Emirates has successfully combined traditional Bedouin lifestyles with Western consumer and urban culture. Instead of colliding, conservative Islamic faiths and Western liberalism radiate together in perfect harmony. Visit computerdo for Middle East Tourism.

Sources of income in the United Arab Emirates
The seven small united sheikh reviews have the oil discoveries of the 1960s to thank because they now belong to one of the richest countries in the world. In the past, the population supported itself on pearls picked up by divers in the Persian Gulf, extensive trade with China in particular, and a notorious piracy that forced Britain to force the emirates to a ceasefire in the 19th century. Today, tourism is the largest source of income and great efforts are being made to attract the most affluent travelers. The city of Dubai is therefore home to what is said to be the world’s best hotel in the sail-shaped building Burj Al Arab. Here, the smallest room is a suite of 170 m2. Other ways to withdraw foreign currency are to sell entire islands in the construction projects “The World” and “Palm Islands”.
In addition to the many tourists who visit the seven sheikhs’s each year, more and more of whom also invest in apartments, houses or artificial islands, the United Arab Emirates is mostly populated by permanent residents of other nationalities. As many as three quarters of the population consist of guest workers from India and Pakistan in particular. This has led to a very unequal distribution of gender and age as most guest workers are men between 20 and 60 years. Women can treat themselves to being picky as they begin to approach adulthood – there are twice as many men as women.
Attractions in Dubai
Dubai is one of the United Arab Emirates’ most popular travel destinations and can be described as a crossroads between Manhattan and One Thousand and One Nights: Exotic markets are crowded next to lavish shopping malls teeming with international branded products. Dubai also offers spectacular golf courses, fantastic beaches and sailing trips in the traditional dhow boats that were previously used during trade trips to China. The Dubai traveler can also take advantage of an excursion to the desert’s sand oceans and lush oases – for example with a camel’s back as a means of transport. Other cities that can add an adventurous touch to a holiday in the United Arab Emirates are beautiful Fujairah and Abu Dhabi, the latter of which is a modern city with remnants of times gone by in the form of mosques and the old Al-Hosn Palace.
