Ras Al Khaimah

Ras Al Khaimah ©
Nicknamed "the Rising Emirate," Ras Al Khaimah may be an unfamiliar name to many tourists, but has been tipped as the next Dubai thanks to its steady development (along with the rest of the U.A.E.) of luxury resorts, retail districts, and shopping malls.
Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Ras Al Khaimah: Umm Al Quwain (Dreamland Aqua Park, Abandoned Ilyushin IL 76, & more). On the 7th (Sun), enjoy an adventurous day among the treetops at some of the top local zipline courses and adventure parks. There's lots more to do: identify plant and animal life at Wadi Bih, zoom along the surf with a waterskiing or jet-skiing adventure, tee off at Al Hamra Golf Club, and pick up some local products at Fish Market.

Take the guesswork out of planning a Ras Al Khaimah vacation by using our trip itinerary maker.

You can drive from Dubai to Ras Al Khaimah in 1.5 hours. Alternatively, you can take a bus. Expect little chillier evenings in Ras Al Khaimah when traveling from Dubai in June, with lows around 32°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 8th (Mon) to allow enough time to drive to Fujairah.
