The official language of the United Arab Emirates is Arabic. In our map we have given the names of the localities in the Arabic script. Due to the lack of space we have not quoted the Latin transcription of the country's name Al-Imaratu al-Arabiyah al-Muttahidah.
Tourism is of increasing importance in the United Arab Emirates. We would appreciate more detailed information, also about tourism, flights, or individual tours to the United Arab Emirates.
