Fujairah-UAE

With only a population of 50,000, it has quite a skyline. Highest building is Fujairah Trade Centre at 145 metres.

I lived in Fujairah most of my life. It's a great place although it can get a bit boring sometimes.

That's actually a really nice looking city. I see mountains in the distance and the gulf at the other end of the city. Although it's native population may be only 60,000 people, the number of foreign workers is probably 4 times that number, much like Dubai, Abu Dhabi, Saudi Arabia, and the rest of the Persian Gulf. I'll give it a 7/10 for now. I imagine they are already planning an enourmous airport for Fujairah with its own airline!!

i am alway's amazed by the progress of the uae! this is a really nice city, and you can see that it is always really nicely planned out! the buildings are really nice, and i can see once more density comes into the city, it will have a really nice skyline, and a really well planned city...i give it 5 years untill it looks absolutely wonderfull, and finised, with the pace that uae is going!

btw, the skyline isn't absolutely complete, yet it's off to a great start.

final vote - 9.5/10

Most of these UAE cities are progressing on an increadible scale, cities like Sharjah and Ajman, they are developing on an insane level.

Fujairah is famous for its industry and history, the old Fujairah fort is very interesting.

One tall building doesn't make a skyline. I give it a 6/10.
