Jun. 02, 18 | 10:22 am

With the increasing purchasing power of Filipinos in the UAE, most of them already plan big and aim for the usual tourist destinations such as Paris, Maldives, and Seychelles. However, did you know that there are a lot of “Instagram-worthy” trips that you can visit here in the UAE for a fraction of the costs? TFT Lifestyle TV’s 3rd episode shares these 6 spots which have yet to be discovered fully by tourists and residents here in the UAE.

1- Flamingos at the Ras Al Khor Wildlife Sanctuary (Dubai)

First on the list is the Ras Al Khor Wildlife Sanctuary in Dubai known for its Flamingos. Visitors can relax, hang out, and take pictures at the viewing deck as they observe the flamingos living within the premises of the sanctuary.

2- Wadi Bih (Ras Al Khaimah)

If you’re a fan of picture-perfect sceneries with massive rock formations, Ras Al Khaimah’s Wadi Bih is the place for you. Wadi Bih is the “go-to” site for marathons and sporting activities in the emirate.

3- Jabel Jais (Ras Al Khaimah)

After visiting Wadi Bih, you’ll have the option to go straight to the UAE’s highest mountain peak, the Jabel Jais located still at Ras Al Khaimah. It has been reported that this site has seen snowfall activity during the winter – but regardless if it really does snow here or not, the majestic views will take your breath as it provides an overlooking view of the lands below.

4- Al Zorah Wetland (Ajman)

With migratory birds and lush greeneries, you wouldn’t expect that this refreshing sight can be found in Ajman! The Al Zorah Wetland will remind you a bit of the Philippines as it has mostly views with lots of greeneries that provide the freshest breath of air that you might experience in the UAE.

5- Central Souq (Sharjah)

Aside from Dubai and Abu Dhabi’s famous Souqs, Sharjah also has its Central Souq where Filipinos can find lots of items at low prices, making it a great place to shop for Filipinos especially those who live near the area.

6- Al Khasba (Sharjah)

Fancy a boat ride akin to Venice and Italy, Sharjah’s Al Khasba will be a great place for you to enjoy the busy city views of Sharjah as you’re riding a boat of your own.
