Ras Al Khaimah

Rising Emirate

Your trip includes some of its best attractions: tour the pleasant surroundings at Wadi Bih, indulge your taste buds at Fish Market, discover the deep blue sea with a scuba or snorkeling tour, and relax in the rural setting at Suwaidi Pearls.

Though most people associate United Arab Emirates only with Dubai, nicknamed the "City of Gold," the federation of seven emirates boats a surprisingly rich historical and cultural heritage and provides a good starting point for visitors interested in discovering the Middle East. A trip to United Arab Emirates reveals a modern nation with a dynamic atmosphere and a landscape that quickly changes from futuristic cities to remote deserts, mysteriously silent places where only the shifting sand dunes mark the passage of time. Add the eastern coastline to your United Arab Emirates itinerary to find a string of outstanding beaches and some of the finest diving and snorkeling opportunities in the region.
