Ras Al Khaimah

Ras Al Khaimah is one of the seven emirates that make up the UAE, and is located in the northern part area.  Its name could be taken to mean “Top of the tent” or alternatively, “headland of small hut.”  The hotels in this region are superb;   including the iconic Waldorf Astoria at Ras Al Khaimah. The development of Marjan Island, a multi-billion dollar residential and hospitality complex, projecting into the Arabian Sea is a sight to behold!  (That area is reminiscent of the Hawaiian or Californian coastline.)   It is breathtaking;  a truly  stunning  place to relax and vacation with  world class amenities and championship golf courses – included parasailing, and skiing in the azure waters of the Arabian Sea.  Many international four and five star brand name hotels are along the coastline. It is approximately 50 minutes from Dubai International Airport. It is also known in the local language as the “up and coming Emirate.”

Appiah Tours will transport you around this entire region.
