The United Arab Emirates (or UAE) is, as the name suggests, not one emirate, but seven. The most famous emirate is Dubai, but here you will also find Abu Dhabi (the capital), Ajman, Fujairah, Ras Al Khaimah, Sharjah and Umm Al Quwain. I have visited both Dubai and Ras Al Khaimah and have found quite a few real gems - both among hotels and attractions!
