A wild and untamed landscape of sandy desert that is anything but barren lies in the cultural hub of the United Arab Emirates. The thriving nation of Abu Dubai is where rich culture meets the modern urbanisation that has become synonymous with the UAE. Deeply connected to the land, Abu Dhabi residents have learned the skills needed to survive their harsh environment. For thousands of years they have travelled the desert, living a semi-nomadic lifestyle and adapting to the difficult climate under a burning sun. Generous, warm and kind, Abu Dhabi locals are more tolerant than many other Arabic nations and therefore welcome travellers to their beautiful nation under the sun.
