Fujairah is the UAE's most scenically attractive Emirate with its picturesque fortresses, dramatic mountain scenery, unspoilt beaches and a salubrious climate. A beautiful society, a friendly people, a marvelous climate and superb seashore have put Fujairah on the international tourist map. Tourist attractions abound and the Emirate has variety of hotels, catering to all the tastes of both the business and leisure travelers and offer excellent facilities including diving. More hotels are also being planned. The travel trade operating in the region expects tourism into Fujairah and the East Coast to increase substantially with more holiday charters arriving at the airport. Transit passengers from technical stopovers as well as "shoppers" from the Indian subcontinent and C.I.S. countries are dramatically adding to the tourist traffic of the Emirate.
With a strong commitment to trade and industry in the region, and an open policy towards the growth of its economy, Fujairah is fast becoming a renowned, commercial and industrial principality in the Emirates. Fujairah today has a thriving port, an impressive international airport, a variety of light-to-large industries and successful agricultural ventures. In addition, the Emirate has seen the influx of some of the leading names in banking and insurance, and its free trade zone reflects Fujairah's progressive policies.
