Ras Al Khaimah,
Let’s continue talking about my trip to Ras Al Khaimah (RAK), guys. In my previous post, I told you all about my journey there and the first hotel I stayed at. And this time, I’d like to run you through all the fun activities that we managed to fit into our two-day visit.
Did you know that you can lay on the beach in the morning, explore Jebel Jais mountains in the afternoon and have dinner in the desert all in one day while is Ras Al Khaimah? This place offers such a great variety of activities and experiences that everyone can find something that they love doing there. From relaxing on the beach to hiking, climbing or even zip lining, RAK has it all.
THE WORLD’S LONGEST ZIP LINE
How would you like to soar ‘Superman style’ over the breathtaking Jebel Jais mountains and see the scenery from the bird’s point of view? You can now do it in RAK, thanks to their new Jebel Jais Flight – the world’s longest zip line (2.83km). I have to admit that I wasn’t brave enough to experience it myself (I know, I know), but, once standing at the start point and seeing other people do it I actually almost changed my mind. It didn’t seem that scary at all and the experience one would have while doing it would stay in their memory forever. Mental note, be braver next time!
BEDOUIN OASIS CAMP
Superman by day and Bedouin by night, not bad, huh? We spend a whole evening exploring the desert, dune bashing, camel riding and having dinner in the Bedouin oasis camp. Being in the desert takes my creative vision to the next level, as the colours and views are just so different from anything I am used to seeing in my everyday life. It was also my second dune bashing experience and you’d think I’d chicken out of it (thanks to my ‘adventurous’ nature), yet somehow, I just love it! Maybe there is a small part of me that loves adrenaline after all.
AL FANAR RESTAURANT
Trying authentic Emirati cuisine in AL FANAR restaurant & cafe is another must to put on your to-do list while exploring Ras Al Khaimah. With a great variety of dishes to choose from it will satisfy everyone’s taste and give you an understanding of a traditional local cuisine.
