Dubai Road Trip #1: Al Ain Palace Museum, Al Jahili Fort, Jebel Hafeet #mydubai

Hello, everyone! Before the Year ends, I would like to share my first ever road trip in Dubai, UAE! Living in Dubai for a year now, and to be honest, I still so many places to see and so many things to do! It is like a never ending surprise for me. So if you are coming and visit Dubai in the future, be sure to SUBSCRIBE to my Youtube Channel for more updates!

So for this trip, It was a very hot and sweaty day for me and my family. It was in the middle of Summer in Dubai when we decided to Drive and discover Al Ain. Summer is definitely not the best time for sightseeing or to even visit Dubai.

Obviously, We survived and I am proud that I documented the whole thing using my GOPRO. It is the best travel camera for me! As I am sure that I get all the shots without walking a long distance. GOPRO is so lightweight too! So satisfied with it.

Dubai Road Trip

First Stop was the Al Ain Palace Museum. It was the palace of HH the late Sheikh Zayed Bin Sultan Al Nahyan and was built in 1937. The Palace very beautiful. I was amazed while checking all the Separate Rooms for workers, guests, and children. The courtyard and the whole open space while walking around the Palace is just majestic.

Second Stop was the Al Jahili Fort. It was erected in 1891 to defend the city and protect precious palm groves. Inside the Fort, you can see the different exhibition of the work of British adventurer Sir Wilfred Thesiger (whom the locals affectionately refer to as ‘Mubarak Bin London’) and his 1940s crossings of the Rub Al Khali (The Empty Quarter) desert. I love how it is a big open space in middle part of the Fort, The staffs there were very nice and attentive. They’ll give some coffee/tea and Dates too!

Third Stop was the Jebel Hafeet. A rocky looking mountain, Located south of the Al Ain city border shared with Oman, a highway has been constructed in 1986 to reach this place.  Driving all the way up to the mountain was an incredible view. It was summer and so hot during out trip there so You can’t see much greens and everything is just plain rock mountains. The cafe or restaurant at the top was full, So I suggest for you to bring food or eat somewhere else before or after your drive up there. The middle part of your drive at the mountain you can stop over Mercure Grand Jebel Hafeet Hotel or stay there for a night.

It was a very nice sightseeing Road Trip for my family that day. We Learned a lot of history and happy to be exploring more Dubai. As I said, It was summer when we went there, so the walking and just going out of the car is just so hard for us, Kinda like going inside a Sauna with Steam, That hot! But now, Winter is here, It is perfect to visit and to do lots of activities.

Hope you guys like this! Will posting my Other experiences very soon! Fujairah Road Trip coming up next! Stay Tuned!
