Plan an amazing trip to the United Arab Emirates

Becoming an essential travel destination, the United Arab Emirates will captivate you with their excess, luxury, extravagance and futuristic architecture.
Located on the shores of the Persian Gulf and the Gulf of Oman and bordered by Saudi Arabia, the UAE is a federal state composed of seven emirates, which include the capital (Abu Dhabi) and Dubai, known throughout the world for its skyscraper filled skyline.
A land of contrasts, the UAE is formed of deserts and mountains punctuated with oases and ultra-modern cities. Here, you will have the opportunity to discover the desert, by day or night, in a 4x4 or on camel back. You will have the pleasure of lounging on white sand beaches bordering turquoise waters. And you will be impressed by towns such as Sharjah, the ancient city still intact with its souk and mosque.
For a complete change of scenery, Dubai is really worth seeing. It is the city of retail therapy, with its luxury boutiques and immense shopping centres. The city rises audaciously from the desert and surprises you with its architectural excess. At 829 metres, the Burj Khalifa, the world’s tallest building, offers a breathtaking panorama across the city. Dubai is also home to one of the world’s largest aquariums, an Olympic ice-skating rink and an artificial snow skiing resort. You won’t tire of this dynamic city which offers visitors young and old a wide range of sporting and sightseeing activities.
Where modernity and tradition meet, the UAE will satisfy your thirst for discovery and delight you with their extraordinary diversity.
