They say the best way to experience any country is by exploring the undiscovered, the hidden gems.
It’s no secret that the UAE is home to some of the world’s most iconic landmarks. From Louvre Abu Dhabi to the towering Burj Khalifa, the country is nothing short of an architectural marvel.
But take a trip away from the bustling cities and you’ll notice that the UAE is also rich in culture, heritage and breathtaking natural scenery.
As part of the World’s Coolest Winter campaign, the UAE Government Media Office has put together a guide of UAE’s hidden gems. Here are 10 to explore:
The House of Artisans at Qasr Al Hosn in Abu Dhabi highlights the diverse history and heritage of the UAE in inspiring ways, focusing on reviving and preserving ancient local crafts in Emirati culture. Visitors can learn about old handicrafts and how they played a role in trade in the past.
Al Ain Oasis is located in the centre of Al Ain City and was inscribed on the Unesco list of World Heritage Sites in 2011.

Al Qudra Lakes in Dubai is home to more than 170 species of birds and animals, making it an attractive destination for visitors, especially nature lovers who like to get away from the city’s bustlign environment.
