Looking for plans near Dubai? This tour along the east coast of the United Arab Emirates will take you to towns such as Al Dhaid and Al Bidya and much more - you'll even get to see the country's oldest mosque!
Al Bidya Mosque & Fujairah Castle Trip
After picking you up from your hotels in Dubai at 9 am, we'll set off on an hour's journey to the Friday Market, near Masafi.
On the journey, we'll leave the skyscrapers of Dubai behind and as we pass incredible views of mountains and agricultural areas of Al Dhaid. Once we arrive at the market, you'll be able to explore its many stalls full of fruits, vegetables, carpets, toys... You can find almost anything!
After the visit to the Friday Market, we'll hop back on the bus and head to Dibba Al Hisn to go on a panoramic tour of the town, which will offer us incredible views of the sea and the Persian Gulf.
The next stop will be Al Bidya, a 30-minute drive away. Here we'll get the chance to see an important historical monument: the Al Bidya Mosque, the oldest mosque in the United Arab Emirates!
Our trip will then continue along the east coast to Fujairah Castle and the Al Bithna Fort. We'll marvel at this incredible 18th-century defensive structure and admire the traditional houses and stunning palm groves.
Before returning to Dubai, you'll have an hour and a half of free time to get something to eat. At the end of the trip we'll make our way back to the hotels, arriving by 5 pm.
