UAE is a country which has to be seen. Record-breaking architecture stands beside traditional quarters while artificial islands jut out of the striking coastline. These are the best UAE pictures when you’re in UAE to tick off your sightseeing list.
The Burj Khalifa stands 828 meters tall and is hard to miss. The Dubai skyline is obviously overshadowed by the world’s tallest tower, but the building’s true beauty is best viewed from the inside up close, or even better. The view from the observation deck on level 124 on a clear day is breathtaking, surmounted only by the view from the 148th floor of the luxurious At The Top Sky Lounge. And for those who want to stay for a while, enjoy a meal at atmosphere level 122 or go to The Lounge, Burj Khalifa which covers levels 152, 153 and 154 making it the world’s highest lounge.
Sheikh Zayed Mosque
The Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque is a stunning giant, modern mosque. The mosque incorporates contemporary design and ancient craftsmanship to create a new understanding of Islamic architecture, combining modern and ancient styles and techniques in harmony.
The Hajar Mountains scythe through the desert, leaving the center of the United Arab Emirates jagged and wild. Twisting roller-coaster roads along the way, with breathtaking scenery, connect the tiny villages of the region, rendering this area a road trip to heaven. Nature lovers can find plenty of opportunities for hiking, trekking and bird-watching while the overwhelming quantity of picturesque wadis (dry riverbeds; valleys) in the area is also fun to explore.
Louvre Abu Dhabi
The Louvre Abu Dhabi, the newest and most impressive museum in the United Arab Emirates, takes visitors on a trip through human history with artifacts from across the globe and across the ages to show the intercultural links. If you’re interested in early history, the great scientific ages, or contemporary art, the museum’s exhibitions are interesting, while the building’s powerful and ultra-modern architecture attracts tourists.
Jebel Jais is the highest point in the United Arab Emirates in the Ras al-Khaimah emirate. It has become much easier to reach thanks to the switchback road. That twists and turns all the way up the mountainside.
At the top of the hill. A series of landscaped terraces and also viewing platforms. They give mountain views that roll right down to the sea. While those hoping to combine their mountain scenery with an adrenaline rush the choice to throw themselves off the peak on the world’s longest zipline. Which runs over two kilometers down Jebel Jais’s slope. Reaching up to 120 kilometers per hour.
