Even though we like Dubai – certainly! – we also like to get aside from the highrises and departmental stores and strongly suggest you add a few day trips – even overnight trips to your Dubai itinerary.

Dubai is very central in the United Arab Emirates with regards to its regional position. Right away to the west of Dubai, you will find the Emirate of Abu Dhabi, the biggest of the 7 Emirates of the UAE with so much happening, we also have another site just about Abu Dhabi!

Ras Al Khaimah

With calming seashores, traditional ruins, and luxurious natural landscapes, Ras Al Khaimah is a tiny emirate that packages in a lot of top-rated sights. The primary sketching point of the region is Jebel Jais, but there are loads of other sites in the city center and on the borders that are truly worth looking at. The emirate’s small nature and its close proximity to Dubai turn it into a great option for day trips, and if you are feeling like investing the night, you will find excellent inexpensive hotels in the city center. Most of the resorts and hotels along the coast come with immediate access to the beach, where you’ll find sufficient chances to participate in watersports or just loosen up and get away from the city for the day. History buffs will definitely want to pay a visit to the Dhayah Fort, a 16th-century military tower offering a rich history and spectacular wide ranging views.

Hatta

Supported by the rough Hajar Mountains, the attractive Dubai exclave of Hatta is perfect for outside adventure. The Hatta Mountain Bike Trail Centre has 31 miles (50km) of rated single-track trails, and you may rent bikes from a Hatta based tour operator. For hikers, a 5.5 mile (9km) trail sets off from close to the camping area, continuing past Hatta Heritage Village to the synthetic Hatta Dam. Here, it is possible to rent kayaks and paddles to cruise the turquoise waters.

How to get to Hatta from Dubai: It is possible to rent a car to drive to Hatta, 84 miles (135km) southeast of Dubai, or take the E16 bus.

Fujairah

Relaxed and peaceful, the Emirates of Fujairah is a charming place hidden from the busyness of contemporary city life. This most youthful emirate is an industrial city settled along the east coast still highlighting an essence of ease in its lifestyle. Divided from the remaining U.A.E through the Hajar Mountains, Fujairah provides a charming landscape and a straightforward lifestyle. Moving forward with its wealthy cultural heritage, the city is an intriguing fusion of 70km long sandy coastline and lofty hill ranges.
