Emirates, officially the United Arab Emirates

The United Arab Emirates, commonly referred to as the UAE, is a federation comprised of seven emirates located along the eastern coast of the Arabian Peninsula. These emirates include Abu Dhabi, Dubai, Sharjah, Ajman, Umm Al-Quwain, Fujairah, and Ras Al Khaimah. Each emirate is ruled by its own monarch and has its own local government, but they all come together to form one united country. The UAE is known for its modern cities, luxury hotels, stunning architecture, and thriving economy. Dubai, one of the most famous emirates, is a global hub for business, tourism, and innovation.
