QUIZ: Can you identify these UAE emirates?

Hint: None of them are Dubai or Abu Dhabi.

Meryl D'Souza October 20, 2016

For those of you who didn’t know, the UAE is made up of seven emirates. Everyone is familiar with the capital Abu Dhabi and its noisier brother Dubai needs no introduction.

The other emirates - Sharjah, Fujairah, Ajman, Ras al-Khaimah and Umm al-Quwain - tend to get overshadowed by the other two. Of course, many residents of the UAE will be familiar with a few of the other emirates and have their favourite places for weekend getaways.

But outside of the obvious hotel clusters and mountain driving roads, we suspect the majority of us don't know the smaller five emirates that well at all. 

Now you can test your knowledge on the OTHER emirates with this quiz. If you get 100 per cent, we suggest you apply for citizenship immediately - we'll even write you a reference letter.

If you don’t, well, you have room to improve. More importantly though, maybe it's time you jumped in the car and explored all that the other five emirates have to offer. You'll thank us for it.
