Hatta has previously been described to us as ‘the ultimate outdoor adventure haven, home to calm waters and picturesque hiking trails’, and it would seem like HH Sheikh Mohammed thinks so too, as the Vice President of the UAE and ruler of Dubai has been spotted paying the up and coming tourist destination a visit.

During his visit to Hatta, Sheikh Mohammed stressed the importance of giving priority to service, environmental and heritage-related projects, given its importance in preserving the national identity and heritage.

He also ordered those in charge of the developments to ‘speedup of the exectution of projects related to Hatta’s comprehensive development plan, which will see it become a key tourist and investment hub.

The Dubai Ruler took to Instagram to post a video of his visit, which saw him tour a number of the brand new attractions in Hatta.
