From time to time I am doing a round up of blog postings (in the last month or so) about Fujairah, mainly to write about why people visit this eastern city and emirate of the United Arab Emirates.
The change in scenery from the desert land west of Dhaid to the Hajar Mountains towards the east takes many first time visitors to Fujairah by surprise:
Listen to this impression from a person spending a two month stay in the UAE:
“Someone at work told us that the most beautiful of the Emirates is Fujairah and that if we had time the beaches there were great. Last weekend we drove the two hours east to the coast. The drive was beautiful. There are mountains all the way up to the beach. So when you are in the water facing land you see large mountains in the background.”
