Getting Around Ras Al Khaimah

Posted by אביבית אסולין on 16/10/2020

Tourism infrastructure in Ras Al Khaimah isn’t prevalent, yet nor is it difficult to find a way of visiting local sites and other resorts. The means to get around is with a private car, via two avenues:

  • Using the city’s taxi system, which can be easily booked from the hotel and able to take you to local restaurants, other resort spas, the sand dunes, and the ancient ruins. You can set times for a pick-up, or negotiate a price where the driver waits and brings you back. This RAK taxi company and price list is also a useful resource.
  • Booking a hire car rental. This might be a cheaper option for those on a multi-day discovery and allows for your own time and exploration, even if you only hired a car for a day. Renty.ae has a good selection of car rental options in Ras Al Khaimah.

What to See in Ras Al Khaimah

Vast desert, a mountainous plateau, and ancient history complement the coastline, which makes Ras Al Khaimah a destination where you can combine relaxation with active outdoor exploration. If you think it’s all about hotel resort views, think again and seek out these landscapes and cultural activities.

Ras Al Khaimah’s Desert Sands

No trip to the UAE is complete without Dune Bashing – an exciting adrenalin rush and the only way in which you can get right into the heart of the endless rolls of golden desert. Our jeep safari ended at the Oasis Bedouin Camp, complete with food and entertainment under the desert’s starry sky – keeping alive an old nomad tradition.

Ras Al Khaimah’s Mountain Heights

Ras al Khaimah is home to Jebel Jais – the highest mountain in the country at over 1,900 meters and which marks the border to Oman. Accessible via a modern road, you can drive to various viewpoints, although the road is still in construction to reach its highest point.
