UAE

The United Arab Emirates (UAE) are a federation made up of seven different emirates that are located along the eastern coast of the Arabian Peninsula.
One of the most important commercial and financial centres in the region, the port city of Dubai is the capital of the emirate of Dubai (Dubayy) and is located at the base of the mountainous Musandam Peninsula. It is also home to hundreds of multinational corporations that are housed in the city’s dense forest of skyscrapers. The smaller emirates of Sharjah (Al-Shriqah), Ajman (Ajmn), Umm al-Quwain (Umm al-Qaywayn), and Ras al-Khaimah (Ras al-Khaymah) all occupy the peninsula. The protrusion of the peninsula that faces north towards Iran forms the Strait of Hormuz, which connects the Persian Gulf with the Gulf of Oman.

Climate of UAE

Climate in UAE

Along the shore, the climate is warm and humid, whereas in the interior, the temperature is even higher but the air is drier. The yearly amount of precipitation is just around 4 to 6 inches (100 to 150 mm) on average, although it varies quite a little from one year to the next. The average temperature in January is 64 degrees Fahrenheit (18 degrees Celsius), while the average temperature in July is 91 degrees Fahrenheit (33 degrees Celsius). Temperatures in the desert may soar to above 120 °F (49 °C) in the summertime, while near the coast they can reach 115 °F (46 °C) during the summer months. During the middle of winter and the beginning of summer, winds known as the shaml (which literally translates to “norther” in Arabic) blow from the north and north-west, carrying sand and dust with them.

Religion in UAE

Arabic is the de jure language of business, law, and government in the United Arab Emirates. The majority of native Emiratis speak a dialect of Gulf Arabic that is typically comparable to that spoken in the nations that surround the United Arab Emirates. Modern Standard Arabic is taught in the schools. Among the members of the expatriate population, you may hear a variety of languages being spoken, such as different varieties of Pashto, Hindi, Balochi, and Persian. Additionally, the English language is quite common.

About three-fifths of the population adheres to the religion of Islam, with around four-fifths following the Sunni school of Islam. There are also Shi’a communities in the cities of Dubai and Sharjah. There are also smaller communities of Christians and Hindus in the nation, although their populations are expanding.

Economy of UAE

The petroleum that is produced, particularly in the emirate of Abu Dhabi, is the primary contributor to the economy of the federation. Abu Dhabi, the richest of the emirates, has one of the greatest concentrations of known oil reserves in the world and provides a major percentage to the national budget. In addition, Abu Dhabi is the richest of the emirates. The emirate of Dubai, which has an economy that is focused more on trade than on oil, acts as a commercial and financial centre for the surrounding area and is the leader of the nation in its efforts to diversify its economy.

Since the late 1990s, the service sector of the economy, which includes public administration, military, tourism, and construction, has played an increasingly important role in the economy. This is particularly true given the country’s efforts to attract visitors and enterprises from other countries. The government has been encouraging major infrastructure projects in order to develop its tourism and business sectors. In particular, the government has been encouraging the construction of accommodation and transportation systems, such as hotels, resorts, restaurants, and the expansion of airports.

Tourism in UAE

Tourism is an important part of the economy of the United Arab Emirates because both domestic and international tourists spend a lot of money there. In 2018, the tourism industry added more than 164.7 billion dirham to the gross domestic product of the country.

The United Arab Emirates has the most successful tourism industry of all the Gulf states, and the country has been the most popular tourist destination in the Gulf Cooperation Council for a long time (GCC). On top of that, the country is the most popular place for tourists in the Arab world. As of 2018, more than 604,300 people in the United Arab Emirates had jobs in the tourism industry. It is expected to keep growing, bringing in an extra 12.4% of the country’s GDP in 2027 and employing more than 410,000 people in the sector. There are ongoing efforts to “Emiratize” the sector, which is seen by many as an important part of the UAE’s tourism growth.

Dubai’s Burj Khalifa, which is the tallest building in the world, is one of the most visited places in the country.Dubai is also home to the World Archipelago and the Palm Jumeirah.

Abu Dhabi is home to both the Sheikh Zayed Mosque and the Yas Marina Circuit. Fujairah is home to the Al Hajar Mountains. The unique qualities of the country’s natural desert life, especially those of the Bedouin people, help the country’s tourism business to grow.
