Emirates On The Road


The Emirates have an authentic and incredible soul. Just waiting to be discovered.

Most visitors visit Dubai and little else. Someone does not miss the main attractions of Abu Dhabi, its White Mosque, its fantastic amusement parks.

But in the Emirates there is much more. Dozens of remote villages, where life flows slowly and calmly as in the past, oases where you can find thermal springs, date plantations and farms.

Traveling to discover the other emirates that make up the UAE you will discover ancient fortresses, ghost villages buried by sand, oases full of sea birds and bays of crystal clear water.

See what the Emirates looked like before the oil was discovered, explore the mountains and experience the thrill of the longest zipline in the world on the Jebel Jais, the highest peak in the UAE.

Spend a night in the desert and learn about the life of the Bedouins and the original populations of the Arabian Peninsula. And to make your trip truly unforgettable, take a trip to nearby Oman: the area of the Musandam Peninsula is one of the most scenic in the Gulf, famous for diving and for dolphin watching. The best way to experience it is to participate in a dhow cruise, the typical wooden boat.

The Emirate of Sharjah borders Dubai, making it an easily accessible destination with a day trip.

Sharjah is the cultural capital of the UAE and is home to excellent museums and universities, as well as preserving traces of the emirates’ past, such as ancient fortresses, souks and desert villages.

Today Sharjah, despite being the most conservative city in the UAE, is a lively and sparkling city, which definitely deserves to be visited!

The Emirate of Fujairah is full of hidden gems to explore. 

Go there by car (or with a guided tour from Dubai) because all the things to see are scattered among rugged mountains and desert oases. Here you can admire old fortresses, hot springs and the oldest mosque in the Emirates.

Go to Dibba Al-Fujairah to enjoy the best beaches in the emirate: these crystal clear waters where dolphins and turtles swim, attract diving and snorkeling enthusiasts from all over the world.

Dubai Desert Safari


The Emirate of Ajman is appreciated for its beautiful white sand beaches and crystal clear water, and for its excellent resorts that are chosen by travelers who prefer to enjoy a relaxing holiday away from the hustle and bustle of Dubai.

The city of Ajman is quite lively, offers good restaurants and some interesting museums to see.

The Emirate of Ras Al Khaimah is the gateway for excursions to the Hajar Mountains and the summit of Jebel Jais, the highest peak in the UAE.

Climb to the top of the Jebel Jais and experience the thrill of the longest zipline in the world, then enjoy an excursion to the most remote corners of the mountains.

The Emirate of Umm Al Quwain is one of the most remote and authentic. Life here still flows as in the past, between dusty roads and old piers where traditional dhows are still built today.

Stop by Umm Al Quwain to get an idea of what the UAE looked like before the oil was discovered.

A good way to explore the UAE is by renting a car.
