The Epic Journey : 7 Emirates in 1 Day
by Rohit Jayakaran on December 2nd, 2014

​Every epic journey starts with hitting snooze on your alarm at 4:30 in the morning. After finally dragging ourselves out of bed, Meghana and her husband Fareed met me outside the City 1016 Studio in Dubai Media City at 5:30am. Our mission was simple, ‘To Celebrate the 43rd UAE National Day by visiting every single Emirate in the UAE in one day.’ Check out the video and read on to find out more.
​Our first stop from after Dubai Media City was the Sharjah Monument. We got there just in time for sunrise and after that we headed straight to Umm Al Quwain for breakfast. After a quick stop at the gas station we headed to Ras Al Khaimah and the highest peak in the UAE – Jabel Al Jais. The winding road was breath taking and the fresh mountain air a great motivator. After over an hour of mountain roads we reached the end of the road after which only my bike could make it further.
​From Ras Al Khaimah we headed to the Friday Market in Fujairah where we grabbed some lunch before we headed to Ajman to view the beautiful sunset. The is something poetic about sunset and after the brief stop we [rohit-on-his-Harley-Davidson]  headed to the Abra Station next to the Dubai Museum. We rented a Abra and after the brief journey we headed for some more Masala Chai and samosas. There is something magical about the Old Souq Area in Bur Dubai. If you have not been on the Abra it is a must do. You can rent a private Abra for about AED 60 for 30 minutes. Totally worth it.
​After Dubai the next stop was to be the Grand Mosque in Abu Dhabi. The mosque was beautifully lit up and with the UAE Flag the Spirit of the Union came alive. Abu Dhabi singled the end of the Epic Quest and we headed home for a good nights sleep in Dubai. All in all the journey took us close to 17 hours and was completely worth it.
