Ras Al Khaimah is an understated emirate of the UAE that is perhaps not as well-known as its neighbouring cities of Abu Dhabi and Dubai, but just as beautiful and even more charming. There is something for everyone here; enjoy sunshine all year round, great value resorts with world-class facilities, captivating museums and architectural marvels including mosques, forts and palaces. Ras al Khaimah is naturally breath-taking with diverse landscapes of mangroves, beaches, mountains and deserts, and is also very authentic as there are traditional Arabian cultures to immerse in, local traditions to enjoy such as pearl fishing and camel racing and a rich cultural heritage to learn about, which you can do so by visiting the city’s museums and historic sites. Some of the most iconic ancient attractions of RAK include Dhayah Fort, which is the only remaining hilltop fort in the UAE built in the 19th century and Al Jazirah al Hamra, an abandoned town with preserved heritage houses and traditional elements.
