Moving to Fujairah

by Wexymay

Hi, my husband has accepted a job in Fujairah and we are trying to find websites of rental accommodation to look at before we go in October. I've tried Gulf news but cant see any for this area. Also, does anyone know if full uk Sky tv packages are available there? We are 50+ so details of expat groups would be very helpful too. Thanks.

Hi. welcome to VT.

Your husband's employer should be helping out with accommodation. If they're not supplying it then at least they should be helping you locate something. You may need to contact larger Dubai or Abu Dhabi based real estate agents to ask about Fujairah property - people such as Better Homes, Landmark, Go Wealthy for example.

You could check out www.expatwoman.com for contacts/help. You'll also get some good background from the blog Fujairah in Focus at http://fujairahinfocus.blogspot.com/

TV packages differ from the UK, we have the Middle East packages. The biggest one is Orbit-Showtime.

What Not to Take

by dave.richards

Always carry a cooler bag with lots of chilled mineral drinks. NO alcohol though! Firstly you can dehydrate and secondly it is against the law to drink alcohol in a public place anywhere in the UAE. Unless you visit in the winter months (December through to March) you wont need warm clothing as the temperature rarely dips below 20oC even at night. In the summer the minimum is around 35oC and a maximum of 45oC (it hit 52oC on one of my visits). Humidity can climb to nearly 95% at night, so be warned. I have yet to see a mosquito here, even in the mountains. In fact, its rare to see any insects! High factor suntan lotion is a must, as is some form of coolent spray for the elderly and the young.
Check on allowed medicines before you enter the UAE (contact the UAE embassy) as several opium based drugs such as Tramadol and Codeine are illegal. Carry a doctor's letter of authorisation and keep all medicines in their original packets, not loose.
Medicines, toileties and such like are cheap in Fujairah so buy them when you arrive. Watch out for cam-corders. Ours went haywire when the temperature hit 40oC. Keep all such instruments, including mobile phones, out of the sun.
Cameras to buy are fairly cheap and are much less than in the UK. Mobile phones cost about half as much as at home and are ALL SIM FREE so will work on all networks. Computer parts are a good buy too in the small corner shops behind the main street. Ladies, on the public beaches it is advised to cover up. Being a muslim state the emiratis don't take kindly to women showing too much body.
When visiting our friends (family) at Masafi, my wife even wears long sleeved blouses, so wearing a bikini (or less) on the beach is a big no no.
Men are advised to wear shorts, not thongs! Some beaches are for women and children only, so look for signs as it may only apply on certain days. Clothing is ultra cheap to buy in Fujairah. There are a few supermarkets in Fujairah that are almost department stores and a pair of shorts or a t-shirt can be picked up for a couple of £'s.
We always head for the Safeer supermarket or Lulus which both carry a huge range of clothes and accessories.
If you must smoke, then cigarettes are about 80p a pack of 20. Buy alcohol at the duty free in Dubai airport as to buy it in a hotel requires a bank loan!

East Coast Getaway

by DSwede

Not knowing any locals and traveling by myself, Fujairah was not high on my list for socializing nor entertainment. It is a rather quiet town, as would be expected on the more remote coasts of a Muslim desert state.

Simply put, I came to the east coast to escape the clamor of Dubai, enjoy the more scenic eastern mountains and oceans, and get a couple dives in.

For more general thoughts on my time here, feel free to visit my UAE page.

Abu Dhabi visit

"Fujairah visit"

A few weeks ago we spent 10 days in the UAE, based in Abu Dhabi but having the time to do a bit of travel on the side. March 16 we travelled to Fujairah, which is on the far east side of the Emirates and is just "around the corner" from the Straits of Hormuz, basically.

Each time I've tried to upload a picture, I've lost the page, so I won't try to do that again right now, but my pictures look great to me! I hope in time I can share them with all of you.
