The country on the Arabian Peninsula is amazingly diverse: 2.000 kilometers of coastline, coral reefs full of colourful fish, dolphins, turtles or huge swarms of sardines to name just a few out of the plenty. Mountains up to 3.000 meters high, with Wadis meandering in between. Green oases with natural swimming pools suddenly appear in the partly dried river courses.
The former incense and seafaring nation has to offer century-old forts, beehive tombs and other World Heritage sites. Islam is a more moderate here and comparatively tolerant. And all of that is around the corner of the superfast-growing Emirates.
