Although inhabited for thousands of years, the area now known as the United Arab Emirates has grown from small simple settlements to cities home to some of the most modern buildings and attractions in the world, in a space of fewer than 30 years. The union of 7 emirates together make up the federation, and with no borders between them, they can all be explored by car hire. The United Arab Emirates is truly unique part of the world and highly popular with travellers. Auto Europe offers several pick up locations and a large rental car fleet, so finding a car rental in the United Arab Emirates is both easy and economical.
The most famous of the Emirates is Dubai, viewed by many as one of the most exciting destinations on the planet. Bustling with activity day and night, Dubai is an incredibly popular destination and is constantly expanding and growing its attractions. To get an idea of the scale and majesty of the area, simply jump in your hire car and drive through the areas of hotels and resorts, most of which have only been built in the past 10 years.
A must for any visitor to the region is a trip to Palm Islands, the largest man-made islands in the world. The islands are connected to the mainland by a bridge, so you can drive your rental car across and explore the area. Back on the mainland, there are plenty of sites that must be seen if visiting the area. Jump in your hire car and head over to the Mall of the Emirates, one of the largest shopping complexes in the world. Within the mall you will find hundreds of stores, an indoor amusement park, and even an indoor ski field, the largest of its kind in the world, a must see! Also worth checking out in Dubai is the Burj al-Arab, the only 7-star hotel in the world, as well as the Burj Dubai, which is already the tallest building in the world and is yet to be completed.
To learn a little about the natural world of the Emirates, drive your rental car to Sharjah, a short distance to the north of Dubai. Here you can visit the Arabian Wildlife Centre, which is home to a vast array of wildlife, mainly local to the area.
Drive your rental car across to the east coast of the Emirates, where you will find amazing beaches and resorts around the emirate of Fujairah. Not as glitzy and busy as Dubai but still world class, the area is similar to what Dubai would have looked like 20 years ago. If you are lucky enough to be travelling here with a rental car, be sure to drive along the coast and visit Snoopy Rock, an island just 100m from the shore where you can swim with schools of colourful fish, turtles and reef sharks.
Back on the west coast, you can visit Abu Dhabi the second largest city and capital of the Emirates. Built on a network of islands, Along with Dubai, Abu Dhabi is seen as one of the most luxurious, wealthy and safe places to travel in the world, and is very popular with visitors from around the world. Teeming with amazing resorts, hotels and attractions spending some time in Abu Dhabi is highly recommended. Be sure to visit the Heritage Village, a replication of a Bedouin village as would have been found in the area prior to modernization, a great insight into the historic cultures of the Emirates.
