Zawya reports the findings of a global study commissioned by Nokia and concluded with a word about Fujairah:
“Fujairah is the most organized city in the UAE, with over a half (55%) of residents meticulously planning their route before heading out. Fujairah residents are the most likely in the UAE to rely on paper maps to get from A to B (25%).”
Before Fujairah residents get too swelled-headed, the organization of Fujairah people must be seen in relation to the rest of the country about whom the study concludes that “UAE residents are the most disoriented in the world.”
