The top reasons to visit The United Arab Emirates are many. Unlike other Arab countries, the United Arab Emirates has a very friendly relationship with foreigners and even share a long history with them. Ever since 5,500 BC, Arab people in these regions have traded with merchants from Mesopotamia as soon as they were able to domesticate camels for long distance travels. During the first century AD, the coastal land of the United Arab Emirates encountered its first maritime trade with China and India. But all its ancient wealth can never surpass its 20th century prosperity with the beginning of its oil industry in the 1950’s. The United Arab Emirates remain one of the richest, if not the richest, country in the entire Middle East and this makes it a unique place to enjoy a luxury vacation.
