Introducing Fujairah

The biggest town on the East Coast, Fujairah City is the eponymous emirate's business and commercial hub. Office buildings line its main strip, Hamad bin Abdullah Rd, while its northern waterfront is hemmed in by vast fields of circular oil storage containers. Still, the town is worth a stop if only to get a sense of Fujairah’s past at the restored fort and the adjacent museum. Locals are also proud of several new developments: the massive, gleaming white Sheikh Zayed Mosque, the emirate's first big shopping mall, and the new (and much faster) Sheikh Khalifa Hwy to Dubai.
