In September, friends went with us for a long weekend in Fujairah, UAE - another emirate 2 hours west through the tree-less mountains. We had a nice, relaxing time swimming, snorkling, eating, etc. But, it was very noticable that we "weren't in Kansas anymore!" Dubai has, apparently, spoiled us. In other words, you definitely feel like you are in the Middle East in Fujairah. Perhaps that is the way it should be?
We tried a coconut milk drink. Probably won't need to do that again!
