    United Arab Emirates overview

    The history of the UAE is deeply rooted in its nomadic past, where Bedouin tribes crossed the desert landscape. In the 18th century, the region’s coastal towns prospered through fishing, pearling, and maritime trade. During the 19th century, the British signed treaties with individual emirates to protect their interests in the Gulf.  

    In 1971, six of these emirates united to form the UAE, with Ras Al-Khaimah joining shortly after. The discovery of oil in the mid-20th century transformed the UAE into a wealthy nation, fuelling rapid development, infrastructure projects and modernisation. Today, the UAE is known for its impressive skyline, world-class tourism, economic diversification efforts, and its position as a regional and global hub for trade and commerce. 

    The UAE boasts a rich and diverse culture deeply influenced by its Arab and Islamic heritage. Emiratis take pride in their warm hospitality, traditional dress and adherence to Islamic customs and values. 

    What to eat

    The food and drink is a blend of flavours influenced by Arabian, Persian, Indian and African cuisines. Traditional Emirati dishes include rich and aromatic stews, such as Harees (slow-cooked wheat and meat) and Machbous (spiced rice with meat or seafood). Lamb, chicken and fish are commonly used in Emirati cuisine, complemented by fragrant spices. 

    In the cities, international cuisine is readily available, catering to diverse palates. For non-Muslim visitors, there are also several places to enjoy alcoholic beverages in licensed establishments.
