This year(2021), in December, UAE will celebrate its 50th birthday. A country so young has achieved many great things from a growing population (over 10 million in 2020) with more than 200 different nationalities to gaining Guinness records.
The United Arab Emirates consists of seven independent city-states: Abu Dhabi, Dubai, Sharjah, Umm al-Qaiwain, Fujairah, Ajman and Ra’s al-Khaimah.
The country looks modern and futuristic with tall buildings, such as the tallest hotels in the world and the capital gate building in Abu Dhabi, which leans more than the Leaning Tower of Pisa but also is the first country in the world that appointed a minister of artificial intelligence.
One of the “bad” things is that the country doesn’t have permanent rivers, which is due to the dry weather, but the wadis that are formed due to the rainy seasons are creating an idyllic oasis, each different every time, each breathtaking every season.
One of the good things is that is home to the safest city in the world. Abu Dhabi, of course.
