Jebel Hafeet: Park at the highest point of the Emirates



                Ever since i arrived in this desert land a couple of weeks ago, I've been curious, excited and motivated to explore what this country have for me to expand my knowledge and experience in my travel blogging. Of course im also afraid, this is not like the Philippines which is a free country and i can do what ever i want.

               Speaking of curiosity, one tourist destination here in Al Ain reminds me of the view of Tagaytay at night which i always saw everytime I'm ridding a bus at SLEX, and this is the Jebel Haffet park at the Jebel Hafeet Mountain.

              Luckily, my mother was invited by her pinoy friends to visit the park last Friday night for some bonding time. Of course I joined them because it is impossible for me to reach the park alone(which i preferred) because it is around 60 km from the town center and i dont have money for the taxi fare, they have cars, so even though i dont feel comfortable to bond with those early 30's to mid 50's people, I have to just to be there. Kapit sa Patalim. Hopefully they doesnt find out my blog site.

Yah of course the groupshot. kevin franciz's suplado level = 70%
                Mt. Jebel Hafeet is located in the southern part of Al Ain, said to be the highest peek in the emirates, it stands 3000 feet above sea level and a popular site to escape from the hell like temperature down there which averaging 45 degrees celsius, can you imagine that people of the Philippines?


     Thumbs Up for whoever the government sector who made this mountain a tourist spot, for maintaining the place clean, for the free entrance fee and the free use of it's facilities such as picnic tables, barbecue grills, playgrounds for kids, etc.





           It sounds cheesy but i love stars and at the summit Jebel Hafeet, finally, I saw a lot of it which i rarely saw when i am in the city. 

          Most Emerati families visit here at night, they cooks their dinner, play cards, play with their kids and of course, to unwind.



                   Tip: Bring your tripod for long exposure shot of the city.

  11. Excellent blog! Do you have any suggestions for aspiring writers?
    I'm hoping to start my own site soon but I'm a little lost on everything.

    Would you propose starting with a free platform like Wordpress or go for
    a paid option? There are so many options out there
    that I'm completely confused .. Any ideas? Many thanks!
