Six of the seven emirates are in the northeast of the country, only Abu Dhabi has a larger hinterland with desert and isolated oases. There are lush green spaces in the cities. In the past, the wealth of the emirates was based on the pearl trade, today on the export of gas and oil. The UAE has the seventh largest oil reserve in the world and is one of the most developed economies in the Middle East. Since the end of the oil and gas reserves is in sight, the service sector is being expanded.

United Arab Emirates: Abu Dhabi
In the middle of a land of desert in the UAE suddenly rise up from the ground, some of the most modern in the world.
The capital of the country is Abu Dhabi. It has developed into such a city over the past 30 years. Skyscrapers, hotel complexes and modern shopping centers shape the image of this city. Between all this modernity, however, traditional places can still be found here and there, such as residential palaces or mosques. Abu Dhabi is also known for its many small shops that are located on the ground floor of some buildings.
Until a few years ago, these shops made even more sales than the gigantic shopping malls. The City Planning Council of Abu Dhabi – the people who take care of the buildings in the city – has already announced that the city will be much bigger by 2030. From residential buildings and schools to metro networks and airports to an even larger shopping center: all of this is to be implemented in Abu Dhabi.
