3 OF THE MOST INTERESTING FACTS YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT THE UAE

The UAE is a really small country but there is so much history to it. People usually focus on the recent growth of the UAE and how it became a worldwide travel destination but the country has been home to a plethora of fascinating traditions for thousands of years. Here are 3 the most interesting facts you need to know about the UAE.

THERE IS MORE THAN ONE RULING FAMILY IN THE UAE

The UAE has more than one ruling family. I am not talking about one or two royal families, I am talking about seven. Yes there are seven! Each Emirate of the UAE is ruled by a different royal family, with the Al Maktoum family of Dubai and Al Nahyan family of Abu Dhabi being the most powerful and the most famous. The ruling families of the UAE are the Al Maktoum royal family of Dubai, Al Nahyan family of Abu Dhabi, Al Qasimi family of Ras Al Khaimah (RAK), Al Qasimi family of Sharjah, Al Sharqi family of Fujairah, Al Nuaimi family of Ajman and the Al Mualla family of Umm Al Quwain (UAQ).

THE UAE IS MADE UP OF SEVEN EMIRATES

The UAE is made up of seven emirates that were historically known as the Trucial States. Each of the emirates have different cultures, rulers, rules dialects and traditions. Before the UAE was founded on December 2nd 1971 the UAE was known as Al Sahil Al Muhadin (The Trucial States) and was under control of Great Britain. But it was only on the UAE National Day (2nd December 1971) that the seven sheikhdoms came together and became the UAE with Sheikh Zayed as the Union’s first President.

CAMELS ARE AN IMPORTANT PART OF UAE CULTURE

Camels are an essential part of the Emirati tradition and culture of the nation and have been for years upon years. Camel Racing is by far the UAE’s most loved sport! Camels also have a beauty pageant! No visit to the UAE isn’t complete without learning about the UAE’s most beloved animal, the camel.
