What about foods, sights, sounds and smells. What should I make sure I get done as a matter of priority?
The big bus tour is quite good for intial arrival for your bearings and some info about the place.

Buy Time Out or What's On (out every week) for recommendations on where to go, where to eat, etc.

hey im new here too,

My missus has just moved to Fujairah this week, and it seems i might be following on soon enough, although were not married, and i believe living together might not be the done thing???

anyways, we're young-ish from Scotland, she's a teacher, Im a marine engineer in the North Sea 7weeks on, 7 weeks off, and i hope to spend most if not all of my 7 weeks in UAE

ive had a nosey through a bit of the forum, but my internet onboard is quite slow, so it takes a time to load, so please excuse if i ask questions that are easily searched-if you've got decent internet.

i was wondering, what would be a rough estimate on accomodation, all included, in fujairah PCM? from what i can find so far, it will be around £1000 - does this sound about right?

thanks in advance

Jamie

Oh I don't know....... there are at least three of us Bedfordshire boys who hang around this neck of the woods...............

........... plus a few more no doubt who simply haven't 'come out' yet due to the social embarrassment and stigma implications...............

So where are you from?
Got any kids?
Hobbies?
Whatever else

Oh and don't forget, different time zones and the weekend isn't Sat/Sun, so don't get shirty if you don't get a reply straight away
Hi there everyone

I am a currently single, 41 years old.

Greg

Hi Greg and welcome

Does the wife know you are currently single or are you genuinely single? Wife being in a different country does not count - have I been in Dubai too long lol

Anyway welcome to the bored.
