Traveling Ted is a blog that takes readers along on my adventures hiking, canoeing, skiing, and international backpacking. Many blogs focus on one aspect of backpacking, but I tackle both the outdoor adventure side and international exploration as well.

The United Arab Emirates (UAE) is one of the most attractive tourist destinations in the world. The land which holds the promise of desert roses and Arabian nights, there is a strange mystic charm associated to UAE. If you are planning a romantic trip for two to this beautiful part of the world, make sure that you visit all the beautiful places that the majestic UAE has to offer.

United Arab Emirates

Exploring the United Arab Emirates starts here – The Grand Mosque

To make your trip a little more expedient, opt for a car rental service & see UAE in style. Renting your own mode of transport is far more comfortable and convenient because it gives you the option to explore any given place without having to adhere to a strict schedule. Now that your travel is sorted, here are the top four places you absolutely must visit while touring the UAE:

Exploring the United Arab Emirates

Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque, Abu Dhabi: Sitting primly in the Capital of the UAE, the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque is one of the city’s major attractions. Built by fusing intricate elements from the Mameluke, Ottoman, and the Fatamid designs, this place of worship offers a serene and tranquil vibe to those who seek it.

Burj Khalifa

The Burj Khalifa in the United Arab Emirates

The Burj Khalifa, Dubai: As the vast expanse of Dubai city stretches below your feet, you won’t have felt such a tug at your heart as it bursts with a joy fueled by this panoramic view. Known as the world’s tallest building, the Burj Khalifa fulfils every bit of your expectations. The Observation deck, also the highest in the world, lets you in on the rich history of Dubai. A must visit for an experience that reeks of luxury and adventure!

Dubai Fountain

The Dubai Fountain in the United Arab Emirates

The Dubai Fountain: The Dubai Fountain fuses the magic of water, music, and light play resulting in a spectacular show, attracting tourists from far and wide. Jumping to about 9—ft in length, this fountain stems from the Burj Lake and dances to different melodious tunes, the Dubai Fountain makes use of the most advanced lights and water sprays. This entire setup is what pushes it amongst the most frequented tourist spot all year round!

Beaches in Fujairah: The only part of the UAE to not have a coastline stretching along the Arabian Gulf, Fujairah beaches are spread across the Gulf of Oman. You can indulge in a myriad of activities like snorkelling and scuba diving here, or simply work a tan while you are here!

Make sure to book a centrally located hotel so that you don’t have to travel too far. As far as renting a car is concerned, it is easy as a breeze and a great travel option!
