Going off the beaten track in UAE is a unique experience! With beguiling destinations like Sharjah and much more, Emirates justly welcomes the travellers who spend on tickets for flights and look for different yet wonderful vacations.


A federation of seven emirates, United Arab Emirates (UAE) caters to one and all! Boasting not only the opulent Abu Dhabi and glamorous Dubai, it also flaunts a fine melting pot of peaceful destinations to go off the beaten track. There are various undiscovered gems that are untamed and less populous than tourist hubs like Dubai. They have unique appeal and wonderful attractions to overwhelm the souls and senses of its guests. Take a look at two cities offering such unique experiences.


Drenched from head to toe with a cultural flair, the third largest city in UAE knows exactly how to put its best foot forward to please shrewd travellers. The Arabian glory pervading the street is omnipresent and greets graciously. With intriguing repositories, fascinating art areas and striking souqs scattered all over, every corner of the city unfolds hoarded wealth. Honoured as Arab Capital of Culture, it unfeignedly pays for your bucks invested on those tickets aboard flights and packages to tour UAE. Heritage Area, located near the Corniche between Burj Avenue & Al-Maraija Road, is a mixture of enthralling attractions like Al Hisn Fort, Sharjah Museum of Islamic Civilization and Heritage Museum. There is no entry tickets required to visit Heritage Area but visitors may need to buy tickets for entering the fort and other attractions.

Nearby is a spectacular Art Area, including an awe-inspiring art gallery that flaunts regional and international art exhibits. Alternatively, Sharjah Archaeology Museum and Blue Souq (Souq Al Markazi or Central Souq) are some other must-see places for those spending on flights to arrive in Sharjah.

Al Ain

Revered as the Garden city of Abu Dhabi, it sits next to Buraimi, the Omani town and gives a new lease of life to Emirati vacations. Teeming with pulsating markets and umpteen forts, it offers plenty to see and plethora to do. The remarkable experience of witnessing the legendary Al Ain Museum and Fort is worth more than the cost of those flights tickets and overall UAE holidays, all thanks to the old world charm seeping out of the fort and refined artistic collection that transports one to bygone era and offers golden opportunities to experience the eternal splendour. Soaring high is Jebel Hafeet, the second tallest mountain in UAE that makes for an apt vantage point for feasting eyes on scarlet sunset and basking in multihued grandeur of dusk.

Missing on a visit to Al Ain Oasis is a faux pas when touring the metropolis. The oasis is the jewel of the crown and deserves a visit by every holidaymaker who buys tickets on flights and takes vacations in the city. The place is famous for ancient underground irrigation system that transfers water from bores to water farms and palm trees. Next to the oasis is the National Museum with two different sections highlighting ethnographic and archaeological facets of the nation. It is at places like Al Ain where you truly realise how less you paid for your flights and vacation packages for UAE and how much more you got in return.
