27 Incredible Photos of Sheikh Hamdan, Crown Prince of Dubai

How much of an adventurer is the Crown Prince of Dubai? Fazza, meaning “the courageous” is the pen name of His Highness Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum which he uses in his poetry. Evident from his Instagram account with over 4.3 Million followers, you will notice how much of a daredevil and thrill-seeker he is.

He is doing a great job in promoting the city and residents in the emirate are regular sharers of news from his social media feeds. Here we post some of his photos in the gallery below. We might be adding more photos in the future but here’s what we picked are his incredible shots.

Sheikh Hamdan graduated from Sandhurst Royal Military Academy and also attended the London School of Economics and Political Science. In Dubai, he is very active in promoting  the city (one of his projects is the social media initiative #MyDubai). He also loves fitness, sports and adventures.

Check out his Instagram account under @faz3. We’re sharing some of his photos that prove how much the prince loves to be outdoors. Come and take a look at the photo gallery below. We hope that you will find inspiration from his adventures and be amazed at the wonder city that he (and the rest of the Dubai community) has promoted.

Always having the country in mind, every time he conquers another challenge and dedicates it to the people of the UAE as he waves the flag.

He sweats out the cold by trekking on glaciers.

Playing basketball, he is active in creating community initiatives.

لعبنا اليوم مباراة ودية مع إخوتنا من منتخب الإمارات لذوي الإعاقة لكرة السلة تفعيلاً لمبادرة مجتمعي مكان للجميع .. ذوو الإعاقة متى أتيحت لهم الفرص فإنهم قادرون على تحدي الإعاقة وعلى الإنجاز تماماً كأي فرد في المجتمع .. ما واجهه فريقنا اليوم لا يعدو كونه لمحة بسيطة عما يضطر لمواجهته كل يوم إخوةٌ لنا، لا يختلفون عنا في شيء .. إن ما يحققونه كل يوم هو مصدر إلهام لي؛ إنهم بحق قدوتنا في الإصرار وتحقيق الإنجازات،هم فرسان الإرادة. Today we played a friendly basketball match with the UAE Special Needs Team as part of the #mycommunity initiative. When people with special needs are given the chance, they rise above their disability & achieve & excel like everyone else. What our team faced today is but a fraction of what our brothers, who are no different to us, experience every day. Their daily achievements are an inspiration to me, as they show us what sheer willpower and persistence can achieve

In land, on air or under water, he has a passion for the extreme stuff and is definitely a thrill-seeker. We hope these images help in inspiring you to head outdoors or do something worthwhile. It’s also great to know that despite being part of royalty, he is not posting too many photos showing luxury or extravagance. Although some of these sports and hobbies are expensive, it’s the message of having an active lifestyle and doing something great that resonates in these pictures.
