Put simply, Qatar is racing headlong into the future without losing sight of its past and it's one pretty exciting ride. READ NOW!

Sharjah doesn't dazzle with glitz but with sensitivity towards its history and culture, which explains why Unesco declared it Cultural Capital of the Arab World in 1998, recognition reaffirmed in 2014, when it became Capital of Islamic Culture. Once you have penetrated the traffic-clogged outskirts of town, the historic old town is easy to navigate on foot. You'll need several hours to explore the heritage and arts areas, the souqs and excellent museums. Aside from the main city of Sharjah, the enclaves of Dibba Al Hisn, Khor Fakkan and Kalba on the eastern coast also belong to the emirate. Explore much more in our latest magazine, READ NOW!

Dubai is globally recognised for its world firsts, and The Palm Jumeirah is an impressive example. Viewed from above, the manmade island resembles a stylised palm tree, which was built from reclaimed land mass and a series of artificial archipelagos. Sailing around Palm Jumeirah in a yacht or speedboat is also a popular option, with many private touring companies to choose from. Thrill-seekers can even skydive above the island for a truly unique experience. For a laidback evening, check out Club Vista Mare – a series of seven restaurants built on a pier that stretches out over the water. It is also packed with fantastic dining options worth visiting, such as Nobu and 101 Dining Lounge even if you’re not staying at one of the many resorts. Read our latest issue NOW!

About two hours east of Abu Dhabi, Al Ain is fed by natural springs and set among oases and plantations, garnering it the nickname 'Garden City'. The birthplace of the United Arab Emirates' founding father Sheikh Zayed was once a vital stop on the caravan route between Oman and the Gulf. Visitors flock to its forts, museums, zoo and smattering of Unesco World Heritage sites. Unlike Abu Dhabi, Dubai and Sharjah, Al Ain lacks ultramodern skyscrapers and as a result feels more culturally authentic. The fact that it's home to the UAE's highest proportion of Emirati nationals also helps. A highlight is the drive up the mountain road snaking to the top of Jebel Hafeet, treating you to sweeping views of the arid splendour that is the Empty Quarter along the way. Lots more to explore, READ NOW!
