With 1.5 million residents, it is the second-largest urban area in the Emirates, after Dubai, which lies 87 miles to the northeast. Geographically, Abu Dhabi is the largest of the seven emirates, taking up roughly 80 percent of the country’s landmass. Nearly two-thirds of the UAE’s economic activity takes place here, with the majority of tourist attractions dotted along a handful of islands just a stone’s throw from the mainland.

The UK has a dark history of oppressing its gay population, but that’s never stopped queer people from building vibrant underground communities.

Whether you’re already planning an Alaska trip or heading to the Last Frontier specifically to chase the lights, make sure you spend a few days in Fairbanks — one of the best places in the world to see the nor

Comprising New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island, and Newfoundland and Labrador, Atlantic Canada covers an area of 195,000 miles, but is home to only 2.3 million inhabitants. The area is therefore an incomparable coastal outdoor escape, leaving plenty of space for travelers who want to fish, hike, and kayak without bumping into anyone. Check out the best of what this part of Canada has to offer active travelers who want to get away from it all.

Contrary to the images that the mere mention of Palestine conjures, traveling in the region is easy, safe, and the people are incredibly welcoming. Palestine is composed of two territories: the West Bank (located between Israel and Jordan) and the Gaza Strip (land bordering Israel and Egypt). Travelers can go to the West Bank, but the Gaza Strip is closed to tourism. Here is everything you need to know about visiting the West Bank and the Israeli side of the Gaza Strip border.

This town of about 15,000 has a rich and complicated history that’s reflected in its handsome architecture and dining options shaped by the city’s diverse cultures. St. Augustine also offers options for water sports, historic tours, ghost and pirate lore, and exotic animal encounters — all of which make this picturesque city just an hour south of Jacksonville the ideal place for a weekend visit.

The Osa Peninsula, a sliver of land located in the southwestern corner of the country, is among the country’s most remote and biodiverse regions — a Pacific enclave that allows for slow travel and cultural immersion without the crowds.

Lake Charles is a fun city with a chill vibe — in that you can still enjoy a night out with others but also remember what your evening was all about, unlike what usually happens on Bourbon Street.

Micropubs have a welcoming communal atmosphere but shun the extras like sports games, whiskey, and legroom, to name a few. Instead, the focus is on what really matters: beer and conversation.

With a population of about 2,000 — 500 of whom are seasonal medical school students — Saba is very much a small town. By your second day, everyone on the island will know who you are and where you’re from. Your cab driver may also be your airport porter, who may also be your bartender at the end of the night.
