Completed All the Seven Emirates of United Arab Emirates (2012-2022)

Filipino Expat adventure on quest to visit all Seven Emirates of the UAE 2012-2022


United Arab Emirates, often referred to as the U.A.E, is a federation of seven emirates on the eastern side of the Arabian peninsula, at the entrance to the Persian Gulf. It has coastlines on the Gulf of Oman and the Persian Gulf, with Saudi Arabia to the west and southwest, and Oman to the southeast and also on the eastern tip of the Musandam Peninsula as well as an Omani enclave within its borders. It is a country rich in history and culture and an easy starting point for travels in the Middle East.

The Seven Emirates that make up the U.A.E. are the following:

(1) Abu Dhabi - The capital of the UAE. Al Ain is part of Abu Dhabi and close to the Omani border town of Buraimi, Al Ain comprises a triangle between the proper cities of Abu Dhabi and Dubai.

(3) Sharjah - A cheaper destination, dusty and overcrowded in places but with its own unique charm.  Blends traditional Emirati culture with heavily South Asian culture. Khor Fakkan is part of Sharjah and is known for its archaeological and historical significance.

(7) Ras Al Khaimah - nestled between the Hajjar Mountains on the East and the Persian Gulf on the West and shares mountainous borders with the Sultanate of Oman. With the completion of the new Emirates Highway, RAK is only about one hour from the emirate of Dubai.
