UI (user interaction) is how it looks, how it makes the user feel, the small animations and quality of life stuff.

UX (user experience) is a (good) government site. It is what it says on the tin, there is nothing distracting, its full accessible. It is efficient and gets the job done.

EDIT: I always look to the GOV.uk sites for almost pure UX, all interactions and styling are only there to make the site more usable. Their patterns here.
