There's no need to travel to another country to see and experience something new. The UAE has a lot of interesting locations. Here are some of them. (KT Photo/Shihab) LOVE LAKES, DUBAI - Located in Al Qudra, The two giant lakes take the shape of intertwining hearts. What's also interesting is that the trees are planted in such a way that it spells out the word 'love' from above.

SNOOPY ISLAND, FUJAIRAH - Just off the coast of Fujairah is Snoopy Island, look closely and at a certain angle and it looks like the iconic comic character lying down.(Photo/Wam)

ABANDONED PLANE, UMM AL QUWAIN - Located near a bunch of waterparks, the Abandoned Plane is a conversation starter with many theories as to how a Russian aircraft settled down in the UAE desert (KT Photo/Neeraj Murali)

BONUS: SALALAH, OMAN - One glimpse and you'd think this is somewhere in Asia. But no, it's just right across the border in Oman. Want greenlands, fog and cool weather? Salalah is the place.
