    Wow that’s nice! an overnight camp at Fujairah would also be cool, dont you think?

    Ok, Crawler here has broken the ice, so lets all share our thoughts guys.

    A trip to Fujairah perhaps, or Alain. Alain has this fantastic hotel on top the highest point (mountain) in UAE. I forget the name. I’ve been there so I recommend it highly.

    If you want to go out for dinner, go to Qanat Al Qasba. They really have good restraunts and cafes there.. I visit very often. If you go during the week nights…less people and very serene and beautiful.

    I’ve heard that there are some chalets at Fujairah that you can rent out for an overnight stay. Is that true? How do you rate Fujairah?

    A friend of mine went there for honeymoon.

    I didnt stay in Chalets in Al Ain but in a tent in the wadi, it was amazing and in moring I bath in hot springs’ water. Man, that was some experiance.

    Omar, I havent been to Qanat Al Qasba, though I stay near by, I have seen Nandos’ sign board, as you have mentioned that they have good eateries there, please name some, so that I can go there soon. Me and my wife are very fond of good eating.

    A lot of people like the abra ride – many book the whole boat for a long ride up and down the creek.

    Then, there are dinner cruises.

    A lot of things have already been recommended, but I would add the following,
    1. Rock Climbing in Wadi Bih (one of many locations Available)
    2. Hire a boat and go deep sea fishing.
    3. Para Sailing or other water sports.
    4. Take a two day cruise of the persian Gulf (The main reason this cruise is there is gambling)
    5. Take a trekking adventure or overnight adventrue trip with mountain extreme.
    6. Drive to Hatta and swim in a 14 Foot deep clear water natural pool route is complicated although the place is beautiful with a lot of farms springs and pools.
    7. Take a helicopter Tour of the City.
    8. go skydiving at um-al-quain aero club.
    9. play Golf
    10. Shoot clay pigeons at jebel ali shooting club, or um-al-qwain shooting club.
    11. Paintball at pursuit games wonderland
    12. go cart racing at the autodrome.
    13. sailing at the dubai marina and yatch club

    What this city is lacking.
    There are a lot of things that could add to the already fun place that is Dubai. The reason these things are not already here is that these are newer ideas for the region and it is getting extremely hard for people to start new tourism operations in the country. The older companies maily concentrate on the visa trade which is illegal but highly lucrative other then the general desert safari that every tour operator is offering. Tour operators need to think outside the box and create new and innovative products for this market.

    The abra across the creek at night is wonderful.
