This tour takes you through some of the fascinating attractions to be found in Fujairah, the only emirate in the UAE to be found along its eastern coast, facing the Gulf of Oman. Fujairah Fort:
Believed to be the oldest fort in the country, it is a site of great historical importance as it served as the home of ruling family as well as being a vital defensive building. Built in 1670 and badly damaged in the early part of the 20th century, the fort has since been restored to its former glory.
Al Bithnah Fort:
Built in 1735, the fortress is located outside the city and was once considered one of the most important defensive positions in the UAE as it stood guard over the trade routes that crossed the Hajar Mountains.
This museum is known for its excellent collection of artifacts dating back to the early Bronze Age that were excavated during digs at Bithnah and Qidfa. One of its standout exhibits is a 2,200-year old bowl made from an ostrich egg.
Participants also have the opportunity to do some shopping at the fruit and vegetable market and carpet market, where they can pick up fresh food and souvenirs to take home.
