The United Arab Emirates is located in the oil-rich and strategic Arabian or Persian Gulf region.
After the Emirates gained independence in 1971, oil wealth continued to flow to the area, and traditional mud-brick huts were rapidly replaced with banks, boutiques and modern highrises.A small part of the land area is covered by mountains, containing several caves.The coastal area contains pockets of wetland and mangrove colonies.(26,000 sq mi)), accounting for approximately 87 percent of the total land area of the federation.Abu Dhabi also has the second largest population of the seven emirates.
Abu Dhabi also has dozens of islands, mostly small and uninhabited, some of which have been designated as sanctuaries for wildlife. The Tropic of Cancer runs through the southern part of the Emirate, giving its climate an arid nature characterised by high temperatures throughout the year, and a very hot summer.
