Abu Dhabi, UAE
Dhows are traditional Arab trading vessels of the Persian Gulf and Indian Ocean. Each of the sheikdoms had a creek where they moored. On the west side of the Arabian Peninsula, trade went by land; on the east side, trade went by water. Today, dhows are a symbol of national identity, especially in the United Arab Emirates.
