The Emirate of Fujairah is often referred to as the ‘Bride of the Emirates’ or the ‘Jewel of Arabia’. Fujairah is the best place to get away from it all, and is home to a number of interesting sights, that offer a relaxing and educational experience to visitors. Fujairah Heritage Village presents life sized replicas of fishing boats, and houses displaying tools, pots and household items, that would have been used in the UAE.
Fujairah Fort rests on a hill looking over the Indian Ocean and is surrounded by the remains of homes that make up the Fujairah Heritage Village. The oldest fort in the United Arab Emirates, this building has served as home to the ruling family of this emirate as well as a defensive fortress. Fujairah Museum offers a look into traditional ways of life as well as ancient cultures. There are exhibits throughout this museum that give tourists an accurate account of how life evolved in this town. Al Badiyah Mosque built of stone and mud bricks in 1446 AD, this is the oldest and possibly smallest mosque in the UAE, and offers spectacular views from the tower overlooking it
The journey to Fujairah is also spectacular, as you pass first through desert, and then travel along the mountain road, where you will pass a number of water filled streams, known as Wadis.
