The United Arab Emirates is a country located on the Arabian Peninsula near the Persian Gulf. It is a part of the middle east and is a large exporter of oil. The capital city is Abu Dhabi, which is one of the two centers of commercial and cultural activities. Its largest city Dubai is one of the richest and most expensive cities in the world, and is home to the world's tallest building, the Burj Khalifa. It has a population of 8,264,070 and speaks Arabic as an official language. It is bordered by Oman to the east and Saudi Arabia to the south and west.

While it has only been visited four times by the original American version, it is a huge staple of international versions of the show. Three separate international versions have made Dubai their first destination. Legs taking place in Dubai are often very similar. The capital city of Abu Dhabi has been visited twice.
