travel, United Arab Emirates

Fujairah: a different UAE experience.

When people mention UAE, the immediate thought is Dubai.

Let’s mix that up a little bit. Here’s some fresh air!

Fujairah is one of the seven emirates that make up the UAE, and the only one of the seven that has a coastline solely on the Gulf of Oman and none on the Persian Gulf. It is also the only Emirate  that is almost totally mountainous.

It’s a more modest region, less shiny, not the very typical UAE experience. p.s. it’s great for scuba diving!

Here are some photos, enjoy.
