Whenever we think about the UAE, the landscape that comes to mind is of a desert expanding till the horizon’s end and a bright sun radiating scorching heat. But the UAE also has its own share of beautiful oases and imposing mountains.

A fair portion of such areas is in Fujairah, a place located about 185 kilometers from Dubai. Fujairah is not only known for its natural beauty but also has its share of historical landmarks.

The journey from Dubai to Fujairah is filled with scenic beauties. To make the most of your trip in Fujairah, you should opt for a car rental in Dubai. A rented car, especially an SUV, helps you cruise through tough terrains with ease.

Here’s a list of things you could do and places you could visit while in Fujairah:

Explore the Wadis of Fujairah

The UAE has some of the most beautiful wadis worth exploring. Wadi is Arabic for a dry riverbed or a valley oasis that looks like a water pool (often filled by waterfalls). Wadi Beih, Wadi Hayl, Wadi Al Wurayah, Wadi Siji, and Wadi Sidr are the most frequented wadis in the UAE and each one of them promise a wonderful experience.

While Wadi Bieh is paradise for trekkers, while Wadi Hayl is famous for its enchanting night camps. Wadi Al Wurayah is known for its unique wildlife and has a national park that is home to more than 860 species of wildlife. Wadi Siji and Wadi Sijr are known for their beautiful trekking trails that can stretch up to several kilometers. Whenever in the Wadis, ensure that you are equipped with first aid kits, food, and other basic survival equipment.

Fujairah Museum

The Fujairah Museum houses archaeological exhibits that were discovered during numerous excavations all over the emirate. Most of these were discovered within the last 15 years. The museum exhibits artifacts that cover the history period between sixth millennium B.C. to the end of the Islamic rule and beyond.

Fujairah Fort

Built in 1670, the Fujairah Fort is the oldest fort in the UAE and has served as a defense for the ruling family. Unfortunately, it got damaged in the early 20th century and was later renovated. The Fujairah Fort is made of a mud brick structure and has three major sections, halls, a square tower, and round towers.

The Heritage Village

The Heritage Village in Fujairah showcases the traditional way of life that includes traditional houses, cooking utensils, farming tools, and the Al Yazrah irrigation system that used bulls to irrigate fields. The Heritage Villages aims at instilling traditional values in modern residents and familiarizes tourists with the history of the UAE.

You might have to spend at least a night in Fujairah, so it’s a good idea to opt for car hire in Dubai itself. Fujairah is a must visit place not only because of it natural beauty but also for the rich history the city reflects.
