Ras Al Khaimah or RAK for short, is surrounded by the Hajar Mountains and is located in the northernmost part of the UAE. RAK is a wonderland for outdoor enthusiasts, because of the diverse scenery it has from sandy beaches to sprawling oases, hot springs and sun drenched deserts all of which are framed with the rugged mountains in the background. RAK has been growing rapidly in the recent years with the opening of a free trade zone, an artificial island with luxury resorts, leisure facilities and a mountain road that provides amazing views all which have contributed to the rise in tourist arrivals here.
The RAK city has a paved promenade complete with restaurants, kiosks and benches situated right in front of the creek. RAK has multiple tourist attractions which include the National Museum of Ras Al Khaimah situated in a fort that was built in the 19th century, the Dhayah Fort, the twin towered fortress with a zigzagging staircase and the Jazirat Al Hamrah fishing village that has a history stretching as far back as the 16th century. There are many activities that can be enjoyed here as well including mountain buggy expeditions, desert safaris and desert camps.
