One of the most metropolitan and exciting countries on the planet, check out our cheap flights to the United Arab Emirates from the USA.
From the ultra-modern cities like Abu Dhabi and Dubai to the vast desert dunes of the Rub’ al Khali and the wadis (valleys) of the east, there’s so much to see and do in the UAE.
An incredibly diverse country, the UAE is the perfect balance of wealth and development as well as ancient tradition and beauty, with more and more tourists flocking there every year.
The effortless blend of old and new, East and West means that there’s plenty to do in the UAE, whether it’s shopping in some of the world’s biggest shopping malls (all air-conditioned, of course), checking out a local souk or bazaar, or exploring an ancient archaeological site.
The majority of visitors choose to stay in either Abu Dhabi or Dubai. Abu Dhabi is known for its many beach resorts and is ideal for a more relaxing break, whereas Dubai is known as the “Vegas of the Middle East” and has a bit more going on in terms of shops, restaurants and things to do.
Wherever you choose to stay, be sure to check out our low fares on flights to the UAE here at Globehunters, including business class and first class flights.
