Dubai and Sharjah are unique destinations where you can enjoy the contrast between the silence of the dunes and the high energy in some of their most eminent cities. Each of the seven emirates of this country (Abu Dhabi, Dubai, Sharjah, Ajman, Ras al-Khaimah, Umm al-Quwain and Fujairah) surprises its visitors with its blend of rich cultural tradition and constant change.
The magical union of desert, oasis, cities and mountain areas will enamour all those who decide travel to this area of the Arabian Peninsula, renowned for its year-round warm climate.
Abu Dhabi, the country’s capital, is one of the most modern cities in the world and offers an endless array of activities for all its visitors.. Next to Abu Dhabi is Dubai, another of the United Arab Emirates’ benchmark cities, as well as one of the world’s most important holiday destinations. Both cities are the perfect reflection of the convergence of the traditional with the modern, characterised by immense skyscrapers.
Given its importance, Sharjah is the third largest of the emirates. Renowned for being a beach resort, Sharjah was named Cultural Capital of the Arab World by UNESCO with almost 20 museums dedicated to art heritage. Ras al-Khaimah is the most authentic representation of the Arab world and Fujairah is one of the least visited of the seven emirates, despite its spectacular mountains, valleys and beautiful beaches.
The Occidental IMPZ Dubai Conference & Event Center offers guests the chance to enjoy these corners, without losing of sight of the souks, the typical Arab markets; Al Ain, offering desert safaris, or the oasis towns of Dhaid and Khatt.
