Exploring the Emirate of Fujairah, the Arabian Jewel, with her spectacular beauty, her dazzling coastline between Kalba and Dibba, the majestic Western Hajar Mountains and her deep wadis (Ain al-Ghamour springs and Wurayah waterfalls), discovering timeless fortresses (e.g. the historic Fujairah fort and Bithna fort) and old mosques (e.g. the al-Badiyah mosque) and admiring Fujairah's shopping malls, contemporary high-rise buildings and international restaurants.
Touring glitzy, frenetic and trés sheikh Dubai all the way from the cargo wharves of the Dubai creek aka Khor Dubai and the old Dubai souqs, via the various shopping malls (our favourite ones: (i) the pharaonic, kitschy Wafi City Mall, (ii) the ersatz-Tuscan style Mercato Mall and (iii) the modern souq of Madinat Jumeirah) to the skyline of Dubai Marina and other modern skyscrapers, like the Burj al-Arab, the Emirates Towers and the yet unfinished but already tallest building in the world, the Burj Dubai aka Burj Khalifa.
“I want Dubai to be a place where everybody from all over the world meets each other, don't think of fighting or hate, just love it, enjoy their sport, and that's it.”
