Three Reasons for Seniors to Visit the UAE

The United Arab Emirates was named the best country for seniors to live and travel in, and Dubai rose to the top of the global ranking for financial security for seniors. This is stated in the findings of a joint study conducted by several reputable companies. This list includes the nations with the highest levels of happiness.

Factors such as cost of living, medical service quality, financial security, housing affordability, average annual temperature, and number of sunny days per year were all considered when compiling the rating. Israel and Australia were also on the list of the most appealing countries for seniors.

In this article, we will briefly mention a few additional important reasons why we believe older people should visit the UAE. So let's get started:

Wellness treatments

The UAE is well-known for its variety of health institutions, where you can receive a wide range of wellness treatments. Relax massage is one of the most important criteria for maintaining health, as muscles relax, flexibility, mobility, and elasticity of tissues return, fatigue is relieved, and skin quality improves. The level of massage and SPA centers is particularly high here, so contact Armonia SPA.

Massage is an ancient procedure that has since become an essential part of maintaining health and improving body functions. Massage is recommended for people to maintain body tone and prevent diseases such as:

  • Headache;
  • Back, lower back, and neck pain;
  • Bruises, sprains of muscles, tendons, and ligaments, and their consequences;
  • Rheumatoid arthritis is one type of arthritis;
  • Stomach and duodenum peptic ulcer;
  • Paralysis;
  • Chronic heart failure;
  • Angina pectoris (chest pain);
  • Hypertension of the arteries;
  • After-myocardial-infarction rehabilitation;
  • Gastritis chronica;
  • Asthma of the bronchioles.

Massage therapy can either stimulate and increase the tone of the central nervous system or relax it, which has a positive effect on the activity of all physiological systems in the body.

Unique attractions

Almost every region in the UAE has found a niche in the tourism market. Some people visit Sharjah, the state's cultural capital, where there is no party scene but there are many museums and budget hotels. Others visit Fujairah to surf and dive on the Indian Ocean coast. 

However, the majority of visitors prefer emirates with centuries-old traditions and cutting-edge technology, where narrow eastern streets coexist with dizzying skyscrapers - Abu Dhabi and Dubai. A week is insufficient to see all of Dubai's attractions. However, we strongly advise you to include the following in your visit itinerary:

  • The Burj Khalifa is a skyscraper in Dubai. The tallest building in the world, with 828 meters and 163 floors! An observation deck on the upper floors of the Dubai Tower provides breathtaking views of the city. The Burj Khalifa is very popular with tourists; it is best to purchase tickets in advance;
  • The Fountain of Dubai. It is situated on a 12-hectare artificial lake. Every evening, enchanting musical, water, and light compositions are performed there. At the same time, you can watch a laser show on the nearby Burj Khalifa tower's walls;
  • Aquarium and underwater zoo in Dubai Mall. This is one of the world's largest aquariums, with over 30,000 fish and 220 marine animal species. A location in which both children and adults are equally interested.

Profitable shopping

Shopping is another popular form of entertainment in the UAE. Giant ultra-modern shopping malls coexist with authentic oriental bazaars, attracting visitors from all over the world. Many people visit the Emirates not for the beaches or excursions, but for the shopping. After all, you can get an original branded item for almost nothing there.


The UAE is an opportunity to not only have a good time but also to spend it in a way that is beneficial to your health. The best attractions, one-of-a-kind activities, shopping, SPAs, and unrivaled nature - everything you need for older people who want to get the most out of life.
