Highlights from your trip

United Arab Emirates travel guide

Observation Decks · Fountains · Shopping Malls
Though most people associate United Arab Emirates only with Dubai, nicknamed the "City of Gold," the federation of seven emirates boats a surprisingly rich historical and cultural heritage and provides a good starting point for visitors interested in discovering the Middle East. A trip to United Arab Emirates reveals a modern nation with a dynamic atmosphere and a landscape that quickly changes from futuristic cities to remote deserts, mysteriously silent places where only the shifting sand dunes mark the passage of time. Add the eastern coastline to your United Arab Emirates itinerary to find a string of outstanding beaches and some of the finest diving and snorkeling opportunities in the region.

The emirate of Fujairah occupies almost the entire east coast of U.A.E., apart from three small enclaves belonging to neighboring emirate Sharjah. Most tourism in Fujairah concentrates along the white sand beaches and luxury resorts north of Khor Fakkan. To the south, busy industrial ports supplying the oil industry dominate the coastline. Inland, the Hajjar mountain range blankets Fujairah almost entirely. Historical forts and mosques dot the landscape, providing some cultural attractions.
