48 Hours in Fujairah

48 Hours in Fujairah, Fujairah, United Arab Emirates (B)

Located just over an hours drive from Dubai, or two and a half hours from the capital, lies the Emirate of Fujairah. Perhaps one of the UAE’s lesser known tourist destinations, but one that should most definitely not be missed.

Fujairah is a mountainous place and is perfect for lovers of the outdoors with rock climbing and numerous wadi’s just waiting to be explored. Fujairah is the only Emirate on the Indian ocean and is perfect waterspouts, diving or just relaxing on a secluded beach along a 90km stretch of pristine coastline.

During the recent spring break, we decided to take our second trip to this mountainous Emirates for a spot of sightseeing and relaxation.

Travelling on route E88 to Fujairah you will pass through the Friday Market (also know as Souq al Juma) which is a great place to pull over for a snack, a coconut drink or a spot of shopping. The market has everything from colourful plants, right through to fruits and vegetables, Omani sweets, terracotta pottery and household item. It is also said to be one of the best places to purchase a carpet in the UAE, as reasonably prices can be had, so long as you are prepared to haggle. ......
