With over 7,000 years of fascinating history and culture, Ras Al Khaimah is the perfect getaway from everyday life.

Ras Al Khaimah welcomes you with a blend of world class hospitality and authentic Emirati history. While it is a liberal destination, you are advised to be culturally aware, especially when visiting our beautiful historical sites and mosques. You should also research your visa requirements in plenty of time before you travel.

The emirate is easily accessible for regional and international visitors. It is also well served by excellent bus and taxi services, enabling you to reach our diverse areas of natural beauty, our historical treasures and our modern resorts. A wide range of maps and brochures are also available to help you make the most of your visit to Ras Al Khaimah.

Where to Stay

Ras Al Khaimah welcomes you with a wide range of hotels and resorts, catering for all tastes and budgets. From the authentic Bedouin experience of sleeping under canvas in the heart of the desert to contemporary five star luxury, accommodation in the Emirate is second to none.

Getting around

With international flights into Dubai airport, which is just a hop away, it is easy to get to Ras al Khaimah. Once you’ve arrived in Ras al Khaimah there is so much to see and do, from exploring the sites, taking the views in from the mountains, to watching the sunset over the desert, relaxing on the beach or taking part in the many activities on offer.

Essential Information

The Emirate is easily accessible to visitors but it is worthwhile confirming the latest visa and passport requirements and checking customs and borders information before travelling. Whilst we hope that you won’t have any medical requirements during your visit there are a number of hospitals and pharmacies available across Ras Al Khaimah.

Cultural Awareness

Whilst 80% of the population of the United Arab Emirates is made up of non-UAE nationals, you must remember that this is a Muslim country and local traditions and customs should be respected. People in Ras Al Khaimah are modern and liberal.
