The United Arab Emirates (UAE) is a federation of highly prosperous emirates on the Persian Gulf, due to its wealth of oil and natural gas. The seven states include the popular tourist destinations of Dubai and Abu Dhabi, which have experienced monumental growth over the past few years. The emirate's main revenues are from tourism, trade, real estate and financial services. Dubai is situated within the Arabian Desert, yet is also situated on the Persian Gulf coast and shares borders with Abu Dhabi in the south. The region offers a cosmopolitan lifestyle, as well as tax-free shopping, exotic sporting events and quality entertainment.
