Rising Emirate

Nicknamed "the Rising Emirate," Ras Al Khaimah may be an unfamiliar name to many tourists, but has been tipped as the next Dubai thanks to its steady development (along with the rest of the U.A.E.) of luxury resorts, retail districts, and shopping malls.
Kick off your visit on the 19th (Sun): browse the different shops at Al Hamra Mall. Keep things going the next day: get outside with Corniche Ras al Khaimah and then take your sightseeing to a higher altitude at Jabal Bil Ays.
