Ras Al Khaimah, which translates to ‘top of the tent’ in Arabic is based on the northernmost side of UAE. Ras is covered with beauty from east to west! The destination bestows us with miles of silver, sandy coastline in the west, the desert plains capped by the Hajar mountains, in the east covering the largest emirate of the United Arab Emirates in the south combined with the flourishing date palms and vegetable gardens.
The bright customs and traditions of Ras Al Khaimah are hugely talked about. The welcoming and liberal emirate of UAE is culturally aware. Even though the country is culturally rich, it also provides leisure activities that vary from golf to authentic desert camp experiences including the world’s longest zipline!

The pearl fishing history dates back to seven millennia. Also making it one of the busiest trading ports in the world. How did it all start? Abdulla Al Suwaidi inaugurated Suwaidi Pearl farm in honour of his late grandfather, Mohammed Abdulla. He was amazed that his grandfather would disappear under the depth of the blue world and return clutching the spherical treasures that the royal families would later flaunt and be proud about. Abdullah was convinced that his grandfather was personified as half man and half fish. The good part about the place is that it still talks about the chronicles that date back to millennia.
The large castle-like structure, is also termed as one of the UNESCO’s world heritage tentative lists and stands tall and proud amidst the arid mountains and the fertile date wadis of northern emirate; Ras Al Khaimah.
