Abu Dhabi is the capital of the country and while it might not boast the same level of fame as its sister Emirate it is no less flamboyant. The city and its surrounds are growing into a cultural hub that offers plenty in the way of luxury and leisure. Experience the Ferrari World indoor theme park as well as the enormous Grand Mosque, captivating museums and slick metropolitan bustle. While Abu Dhabi is breath-taking in its own right, the UAE's ultimate offering remains Dubai - which is never short of an excuse to overindulge.

Whether it's lavish escapes to the surrounding desert or indoor skiing at Ski Dubai, opposing extremes meet in this place of cosmopolitan wonders. Dubai offers a host of experiences, whatever your taste: take-in the tallest building in the world, the Burj Khalifa; relax at one of the luxurious resorts on the manmade Palm Jumeirah or along Jumeirah Beach; dine at extravagant Michelin star restaurants; enjoy thrilling water parks; experience the largest indoor theme park in the world, IMG Worlds of Adventure; or the huge new Dubai Parks & Resorts theme park that includes LEGOLAND; or catch a glimpse of old Dubai around the Creek and enjoy the atmosphere of the souks.

The emirate of Ras Al Khaimah is still relatively undiscovered by the crowds and offers a glimpse of real Arabian life. It couldn't be more of a contrast to Dubai. Here, as well as luxury hotels and great beaches you'll find rugged mountains, endless deserts, ancient cultural sights and an oasis of nature. Inland, the unspoilt landscape awaits discovery with a great selection of unique activities and excursions for the ultimate Arabian experience.

Unparalleled service, contrasting desert, beach and cityscapes along with incredible exclusivity are staples of the UAE experience, one that never fails to disappoint.
