Closer Look at Fujairah Suburb Al Faseel

Anna Zacharias has written an article and posted a photo gallery on Al Faseel, a suburb of Fujairah.

This is a popular suburb that has a beach, hotels (Hilton, Siji Apartments), mosques, schools and shops.

She writes:

“You could be forgiven for thinking that Al Faseel is a sleepy neighbourhood. Under dark skies and a white crescent moon, a handful of boys play football on a sand pitch near one of Al Faseel’s mosques. Otherwise, the streets are empty.”

“But don’t be deceived; the silence of its streets hides the commotion and merriment that takes place behind garden walls. Al Faseel may seem quiet, but it is loved by the families who live there.”

In summary
Anna concludes:
“And this is the essence of Al Faseel: a place for family and friends to relax and enjoy life.”
