Ras Al Khaimah

This relatively undiscovered emirate of Ras Al Khaimah is full of surprises. From flamingo-filled mangroves, to warm and sheltered lagoons, endless deserts and some of the most luxurious hotels in the world, it has been tailor made for the most discerning travellers. Experience famous Arabian hospitality at one of the many all-inclusive resorts along the Ras Al Khaimah coastline, and soak up the rich local culture in one of the many restaurants, cafes and museums which line the picturesque Corniche. History buffs will love the ancient artefacts on show at the celebrated National Museum, and the real-life archaeology sites at Dyeh Fort and the Al Hamra fortress, which was the seat of civilization for millennia. But above all, Ras Al Khaimah (RAK, to the locals) is a place to relax and enjoy the surroundings. With world-class spas, high end malls and duty free shopping, it’s easy to spoil yourself and experience the finer things in life, without breaking the bank.
