Umm al-quwain Trip Video – The sleepy fishing port of Umm al-Quwain offers little in the way of attractions for the visitor compared to other emirates, apart from the chance to experience the closest thing to a pre-oil town that youll find in the UAE. Its name, Mother of Two Powers, refers to the emirates power over both land and sea, and the town itself lies on a narrow peninsula of sand jutting north from the main road linking Sharjah with Ras al-Khaimah.
The old town and the emirates tiny business district are at the northern tip of the peninsula, along King Faisal Rd (aka Muroor Rd). Banks are found in King Faisal Rd and internet access is available at the Palma Beach Hotel for Dh10 per hour.
