Looking for plans near Dubai? This tour along the east coast of the United Arab Emirates will take you to towns such as Khor Fakan and Al Bidya - you'll even get to see the country's oldest mosque!
Al Bidya Mosque & Fujairah Fort Trip
After picking you up from your hotels in Dubai between 8:30 and 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 the famous Sheikh Zayed Mosque in Fujairah, the second largest mosque in the United Arab Emirates. Due to its colossal dimensions, it can accommodate up to 28,000 worshippers!
After visiting the temple, we'll make our way to the Fujairah Fort. Built in 1670, it is the oldest fort in the country and was the most important defensive building on the coast for centuries. We'll tell you many curiosities of this construction that has also come to serve as a residence for high officials of the emirate. You're sure to love the restored houses showing the traditional Emirati way of life near the Fujairah Fort.
Next, we'll cross the city of Khor Fakan admiring its incredible waterfall along the way until we reach the Al Bidya Mosque, built in 1446 between the mountains of Hajar. Although other Islamic temples had been built before this time, this is the oldest mosque still standing today - it's practically the same as it was in the 15th century!
We'll also visit an ancient Roman theater and then return back to Fujairah, where we'll leave you two and a half hours for lunch. With our stomachs satisfied, we'll start on our way back to the hotels, arriving between 4:30 and 5 pm.
If you book this excursion with lunch, you'll enjoy a delicious buffet lunch at a hotel with a private beach. Water and soft drinks are also included. If you opt for the option without lunch, you'll have time for lunch on your own at a Fujairah restaurant of your choice.
