Road to Fujairah

Last weekend, we packed our bags for a short trip to explore Fujairah, one of the seven Emirate of the UAE. The UAE is composed of seven Emirates namely (as dictated by Kuya): Abu Dhabi, Dubai, Sharjah, Ajman, Umm Al Quawain, Ras Al Khaimah, and Fujairah.

We first visited the Emirate last 2009 along with our friends, Dad recalled that it took us almost 3 hours of drive. He decided to take the day off and wanted to leave as soon as Kuya get’s back from school.

I told him of the new road and when we searched for our destination – Novotel Fujairah , google maps estimated our time travel to be 1 hr and 40 mins from Al Qusais.

The Sheikh Khalifa Highway which was opened last 2011, took almost 4 years to complete. A relief to those who travel daily from Dubai to Fujairah.

Here’s a few photos I took on our way. I was seated on the front and Daddy C was driving.

Mountains, we can see them in the horizon along Sharjah-Kalba road.

We just can’t stop admiring how beautiful the mountains around the highway. The UAE government funded the 40 kilometere highway to a whopping Dhs 1.7 billion. How many mountains did you they had to blow up to provide travelers this new route?

I so wanted to stop and have our photo’s taken but the kids were sleeping.

Hi, my name is Abigail a stay at home Mama of two LittleOnes and currently residing in Dubai, UAE since 2009. This is my little space online where I share activities, places we've been, food we enjoy and snippets of our daily expat life. ‘Cuddles and Crumbs’ is a combination of the two main things I share on this blog: cuddles (family) and crumbs (food).


  1. It looks like you had a fun trip travelling to Fujairah, the mountains make the road look mystical. Popping in from Magic Moments

  2. My friend lives in AD and did this trip not long ago and loved it. I’d not heard much about the area before that but it does look like a very good adventure.
