It is certainly hard to believe that the United Arab Emirates (UAE) was a mostly dry, barren desert nation for much of its history. Ideally positioned between the East and West. the UAE borders three countries - Qatar, Saudi Arabia and Oman - in the heart of the Middle East. Additionally, thanks to the cooler breezes of the Gulf of Oman and Persian Gulf, the UAE is a proverbial desert paradise worth more than a quick shopping stopover between flights.
Of course, the UAE is well-known for its infrastructure. The main hubs of Dubai and Abu Dhabi are home to soaring skyscrapers, world-class shopping malls and stunning restaurants - all mixed with traditional Emirati culture. A great example of this is the Burj Khalifa, the tallest structure in the world, standing at an amazing 829.8 metres tall. With views far into every direction and a collection of shops, restaurants and hotel rooms - this building sums up the progress of the UAE in the most spectacular way possible.
Occupying an area of around 83,600 square kilometres (about the size of Scotland) , the best way to explore the vast landscape of the UAE is by road. Fortunately, this is where DriveNow can help.
