An exotic desert stay in a vacation home in the United Arab Emirates
A federation of seven emirates, with Abu Dhabi as its capital, the United Arab Emirates (UAE) is a popular starting point for travels in the Middle East. The discovery of oil in the 1950s changed its status from a sleepy backwater conclave to one of the world's more glittering nations. Choose from an array of condominiums, self service apartments, and guest houses.
The love of food
Pakistani, Indian, Lebanese, Syrian, and Jordanian cuisine is ubiquitous in the UAE's large cities and towns. Pork can be consumed in certain restaurants while alcohol is often served in hotels. While in the UAE, don't miss the ever popular Levantine meat preparation shawarma, served with Arabic roti, pickles, fries, and garlic sauce. Chicken, lamb, and fish biriyani preparations are excellent too.
Fish, rice, lamb, and mutton are core to Emirati cooking. Local wedding ceremonies often serve a dish called 'stuffed camel' where a whole camel is filled with fish, rice, boiled eggs, and chicken. During Ramadan and Eid, the meat and wheat-based Al Harees preparation is eaten. Al Machboos pleases with its onion, meat, rice, and dried lime flavors. Mendi-style dishes from neighboring Yemen are a must for international foodies. The Dubai Food Festival held in February/March features cuisines from over 200 nations.
Weather and precautions to be taken
The best time to visit is from October to March when temperatures range between 59-80°F. There are chances of rain showers from November and February. Summers are very dry and dusty, and temperatures easy reach 122°F.
Leave your body time to acclimatize, and wear full-sleeved light cotton clothes. Outdoor activities are best scheduled for the early morning or evening. Hydrate regularly, eat small and frequent portions of food, and cool off in the air-conditioned malls and water parks. Although the region is dry, water is in plenty owing to desalinization.
The wild Emirati outdoors
Beyond the glamour of its cities, is a nation steeped in tradition and natural beauty. South of Abu Dhabi lies the country's highest dunes in Liwa Oasis, populated by the Bedouins. Dune-bashing and safaris are mandatory here. Next come the archaeological wonders and natural rock formations in the Hajar Mountains of Al Dakhiliya. Check out the city of Ras Al Khaimah while here.
Close to the Jebel Hafeet mountains is the oasis town of Al Ain, lined with thousands of date palm trees. At the foot of the mountain lie the stunning natural cave systems and hot springs of the Green Mubazzarah. Here you'll also find WADI ADVENTURE, an artificially-created destination for whitewater rafting, kayaking, and surfing. The Gulf of Oman is a great spot for cooling off and for diving.
The United Arab Emirates has its share of cascading waterfalls, dramatic cliffs, white sand beaches, and even freshwater lakes. Come visit!
