The United Arab Emirates (UAE) or simply the Emirates, is a country in Western Asia (The Middle East). It is located at the eastern end of the Arabian Peninsula and shares borders with Oman and Saudi Arabia, while having maritime borders in the Persian Gulf with Qatar and Iran. Abu Dhabi is the nation’s capital, while Dubai, the most populous city, is an international hub.
As you might know our mission is to share something relevant, something authentic, something real, something cool, something interesting, something personal & something different, via our travel stories & images. We are focusing on ideas from local sources. Giving tips that are usually unknown to travellers and foreigners. Guides to secret places which only the guy from the given neighbourhood could know about. To the hidden picturesque view. And recommending everything besides the obvious. The local real feel, the adventure of discovering the unknown, the authenticity, culinary guide to the meals that locals are really cooking and eating at home, and much more. Hope you will explore our Travel Stories from UAE. Feel inspired and enjoy the journey, as much as we do!
Jebel Hafeet is a mountain range forged out of craggy and the highest peak in Abu Dhabi and probably the best view point over Al Ain.
A tourist visit to Al Ain is always a good plan, for expats, locals and regular foreign tourists. This is still an Oasis in the desert.
Here comes our ultimate Abu Dhabi Bucket List! Discover Abu Dhabi with us, we share the best places that you cannot miss!
The first place we decided to visit in the UAE was the Presidential Palace in Abu Dhabi, Qasr Al Watan. Qasr Al Watan is more than a palace. As they say: “It is a unique testament to the spirit of the United Arab Emirates’ people and its leaders. The Palace invites the world to share our culture, knowledge and inspiring journey. Qasr Al Watan is more than just a palace, it is an enriching interactive journey in a contemporary setting that reveals and reflects on governance, knowledge and craftsmanship.”
