Umm Al Quwain stamps
Excuse my putting here another tip which isn’t really a Fujairah local custom tip but was created when I watched my stamp albums in search of a set of Fujairah stamps (see the previous tip). But how I was surprised when I found another set of stamps which I had never seen before! That set wasn’t mine! I don’t collect stamps last 40 years (since the end of 60th!). But my elder son Pavel collected stamps when he was a boy in far 80th. And he bought a set of stamps from mysterious country Umm al Qiwain! Yes, accepted alternative spellings of Umm Al Quwain include Umm al Qiwain (used on its former postage stamps).
That’s why you can see these stamps here:
Umm al Qiwain January 1969 Horses:
Postage - 25 dh., 50 dh., 75 dh., 1 rl, 2 rl
Air Mail - 1 rl 50 dh., 2 rl 50 dh., 4 rl, 5 rl
According to Kay Horowicz, Umm al Qiwain opened its first post office on 27 November 1963. The shaikhdom issued its first stamps on June 29, 1964. Umm al Qiwain agreed to join the United Arab Emirates on 2 December 1971. On 1 August 1972 the UAE took responsibility for postal operations.
Fujairah is one of the seven emirates that make up the United Arab Emirates, and the only one on the Gulf of Oman in the country's east.

Down in Fuj...
Without a 4WD and "The Off-Road UAE" Explorer guide book Fujairah doesnt seem to have a lot to offer. I wouldnt have gone back a second time if it wasnt for The Meridien Hotel.
Otherwise, youll have to spend the extra money on booking a tour.
I have a feeling that the northeast and southern Oman has a whole lot more to offer.
Fujairah city itself is just waste of time, if you ask me :-) The Friday Market may catch your interest (open all days selling pottey, plants, carpets, fruit and veggies....).
