Ras Al Khaimah (RAK for short) is the most northerly emirate in the UAE. It is an ‘up and coming’ emirate which is now a popular tourist destination. It is known for its beautiful beaches, its diverse landscape and its unique heritage. RAK is also the most mountainous emiate and is in the shadows of the Jabal Al Jais mountain, the largest in the UAE. This is also home to the world’s longest zipline where you can reach speeds of upto 120 – 150kph. If you are feeling like more adventure, why not go dune bashing, mountain climbing, horse riding or mountain biking in the surrounding areas. After this, head to Marjan Island to relax whilst watching a stunning sunset. RAK is around a 1 hour drive to Dubai which is perfect for a day trip or weekend away.
