Ras Al Khaimah (RAK) is one of the seven emirates forming the

United Arab Emirates. Located in the northern part of the country, it's

named after its capital city. "Ras Al Khaimah" translates

to "headland of the tent". The city is divided by a creek into two

primary areas: the Old Town and Nakheel. Beyond the city limits,

RAK houses several villages, new residential areas, and is framed

by the stunning North-Western Hajar Mountains.

Archaeological Significance

RAK's historical significance is deep-rooted, boasting continuous

human habitation for 7,000 years, a rarity both in the country

and globally. The emirate is dotted with numerous historical and

archaeological sites. Particularly in the area of Shimal, one can

find relics from the Umm Al Nar and Wadi Suq civilizations.

These sites paint a vivid picture of the region's ancient lifestyle,

trade, and customs.


Julfar & Emergence of RAK

Julfar (means pearl), the medieval port city, serves as a testament

to RAK's vibrant trading history. Over time, as Julfar's harbor silted

up, the region now known as RAK expanded and eventually enveloped

the areas that were once part of Julfar. Julfar was significant not only

for trade but also because of its inhabitants, like Ibn Majid, an influential

navigator and cartographer.


The Maritime Legacy & British Involvement

The 18th century was turbulent for RAK, marked by maritime

confrontations. British accounts labeled the region as

'The Pirate Coast', pointing fingers at the Al Qasimi clan's supposed

maritime piracy. However, historical interpretations vary. Some

view the Al Qasimi as a significant maritime force, with territories on

both the Persian and Arabian coasts, which naturally led to conflicts

with British trade routes. As tensions escalated, the British launched

two notable campaigns: the Persian Gulf campaigns of 1809 and

1819, aimed at diminishing the Al Qasimi influence.


Geopolitical Shifts in the 19th Century

The 19th century saw a pivot in RAK's geopolitical tatus. The General Maritime Treaty of 1820 with the British marked the end of piracy and the beginning of the British protectorate era over the Trucial States. Despite RAK asserting its independence in 1869, the subsequent years witnessed it being merged with Sharjah until 1921.


Integration into the UAE

RAK's modern era dawned with its pivotal decision to join the United Arab Emirates in 1972, after initial hesitations and geopolitical challenges, including issues related to the territories of Abu Musa and the Greater and Lesser Tunbs. Today, RAK stands as a testament to its rich past while forging ahead with a vision for the future.

A Brief Guide to Clothing in the UAE

If this is your first time to the UAE, you may be asking yourself exactly what clothing is appropriate, or not,

when it comes to packing your suitcase. Arrival at the airport will not put your mind at ease as you will

find every type of exotic clothing under the sun from every corner of the globe, some of which may look

like your own, but most will probably not! Come to the passport control and there you are faced with a

long row of security staff wearing the flowing white and black robes of the local traditional dress.


This can be pretty intimidating at first, but you soon find out the truth…. the UAE is a thriving international

city and all you are seeing is the traditional dress of its local and diverse international population. A cultural

zoo is the UAE, in every good way possible.


So, first thing’s first, what are the names of the traditional UAE garments:


                Kundura / Dishdasha: The long, glowing white garment worn by men on the Arabian peninsula,

                                                                      including the UAE. It’s light-weight cotton or wool designed to keep the wearer                                                                                                                          cool in hot weather.

                                                                     A similar version called the ‘Thobe’ is common in Saudi, Kuwait, and Qatar.


                                                                                       Ghutra: The traditional headscarf worn by the men.

                                                                                                                                  It’s generally white or chequered.



Abaya: This is a long, loose-fitting black robe worn by women in the Gulf region. It covers the entire body, except for the face, hands, and feet.


                                                                                                                                                Hijab: This is a headscarf worn by women to cover their hair and

                                                                                                                                                              neck. It is widely varying across Arabian countries 

                                                                                                                                                              depending on the region and culture.




Niqab: This is a veil that covers a woman’s face and was worn by women for modesty and privacy. 

                                                 It’s important not to confuse religion and culture. The official guidance of Islam requires modesty by women, yet

                                                 how this is achieved comes down to the cultural habits and preferences of the individuals involved. 

                                                 In the UAE today, the niqab is still seen however it is less common. There is also a growing trend for local men and                                                        women, particularly in the younger generations, to wear non-traditional western style clothing in some settings. 

Main Attractions

-Dhayah Fort

-Al Jazeera Al Hamra

-Mystery Palace

-Mohammed bin Salim Mosque

Dhayah Fort

Dhayah Fort in Ras Al Khaimah is on the UNESCO World Heritage Tentative List. Positioned amid mountains and date valleys, it offers panoramic views from the oasis to Oman's shores and the sea.

Dhayah Fort, the UAE's sole surviving hill fort, has roots in the Late Bronze Age (1600 – 1300 BC). Built in the 19th century, this golden mud-brick fortress witnessed the pivotal 1819 battle between the British and local Qawasim tribes. Climbing its 239 steps reveals breathtaking views of the date palm gardens, Jebel Jais mountains, and the heart of the Dhayah oasis.

Below, a larger fort housed those from nearby palm gardens during threats. Watchtowers throughout the oasis ensured seamless communication. The fort's 70-metre elevation, surrounded by historic watering systems fed by mountain run-offs, is a testament to ancient engineering. Additionally, 12 significant Wadi Suq tombs, four already excavated, showcase Southeast Arabia's funerary architecture. Plans by Ras Al Khaimah's Department of Antiquities envision an archaeology park encompassing this region.

Al Jazeera Al Hamra

Pearls, cherished since prehistoric times, have deep roots in the UAE, as evidenced by Neolithic discoveries. Al Jazeera Al Hamra, translating to "Red Island," stands as the Gulf's lone historical pearling village, with others lost to oil's rise.

Boasting traditional elements like forts, watchtowers, mosques, souqs, and a myriad of residences, this village paints a rich tapestry of architectural styles. From modest abodes to opulent merchant mansions, structures utilized indigenous materials, such as coral blocks, mangrove beams, and seashell layers for drainage. Circa 1900, the village sheltered around 500 houses, occupied mainly by the Zaab tribe. Its leader, Sheikh Rajib bin Ahmed Al Zaabi, was a key signatory to the pivotal 1820 treaty with the British.

Historically an island, Al Jazeera Al Hamra hosted the vibrant Zaab tribe with a prolific pearling fleet and livestock. However, the pearl industry's decline in the 1920s marked a shift. Valuable archaeological finds include an ancient 20-domed mosque, captured in 1820s British cartography. With intricate plaster screens, ornate archways, and the signature wind tower or barjeel for passive cooling, the village exemplifies millennia of Middle Eastern architectural evolution. Now on UNESCO's Tentative List, it's a testament to regional town planning.

Yet, the oil boom of the late 1960s and early 1970s saw its inhabitants depart. Today's open-air museum, though rich in history, stands fragile. Visitors are urged to tread carefully, refraining from venturing into unstable buildings. Respect the site's heritage by not removing any items and visiting only during daylight for safety.


Mystery Palace

Al Qasimi Palace in Ras Al Khaimah is more than just an architectural marvel; it's a place shrouded in legends and mysteries. Constructed by Sheikh Abdulaziz bin Humaid Al Qasimi in 1985, the palace is believed to have cost over AED 500 million. Despite its grandeur, with intricate designs reflecting a melange of Islamic, Moroccan, and Persian influences, it remained uninhabited for years, giving rise to tales of eerie occurrences. Local legends whisper that the Sheikh and his wife only spent a single night there, driven out by unexplained paranormal events.

These tales, combined with sightings of spectral children behind stained glass windows, have kept the palace's mysterious aura alive. However, for the curious visitor, the palace now stands open. Inside, they'll find 35 meticulously refurbished rooms, each telling its own story through European chandeliers, immersive murals of distant lands, and cooling marble floors. The palace's crown jewel is its top floor, where a grand glass pyramid lets sunlight cascade through, illuminating the astrological signs gracing the walls below. Amidst its corridors, an eclectic mix of marble statues, animal-themed murals, and antique artefacts can be found, each piece adding to the palace's enigmatic narrative.


Mohammed bin Salim Mosque

Archaeological excavations at the site of the Mohammed Bin Salem Mosque unearthed evidence of a previous mosque from the late 18th century. This aligns with historical records that suggest the presence of a mosque here as far back as the 16th century. The 18th-century structure was unfortunately destroyed during the British occupation in 1819/20, but a new mosque was soon erected atop its foundations. Over the years, the mosque has seen several renovations. In recent restoration efforts, contemporary additions were stripped away to reveal and restore its original coral stone and beach rock architecture, which was then coated with layers of traditional plaster.

Desert Safari

Ras Al Khaimah, an integral component of the United Arab Emirates, is a timeless window into the heart of the

Arabian Desert. Hidden within its vast expanse, lie the cherished secrets of Bedouin Camps and Desert Villages.

These settlements offer a serene journey back in time, set against the timeless canvas of the rolling dunes, which

come alive in vivid shades of flame and terracotta.


Embracing Simplicity

The Bedouin way of life, entrenched in history spanning 2500 to 3000 BC, is a testament to human adaptability and

endurance. Living in harmony with the harsh desert environment, they've perfected a nomadic lifestyle, migrating

seasonally in search of temperate climes, water, and pastures for their livestock. Yet, their transient existence didn't

imply a life of discomfort. Instead, they managed to establish makeshift homes, ensuring the warmth of hospitality,

nourishment, and leisure.

Their dwellings, a testament to their resourcefulness, were primarily tents woven from goat hair, camel hair, or

sheep's wool. The tight shiqaq fabric provided shelter against the scorching sun, whipping sandstorms, and cold

desert nights.

Echoes of the Past

As the sun set, casting its golden hue over the desert, the Bedouins sought solace in the rhythms and rhymes of

their ancestral poetry. Taghrouda, a traditional poetic form, was chanted as they journeyed on camelback.

Believed to synchronize the camels' strides, these verses resonated through the desert. Nabati poetry, another

treasured oral tradition, carried tales of valour, love, and celebration.

Bedouin culture is deeply rooted in values of loyalty and hospitality. Guests, whether anticipated or unexpected,

are treated with warmth and generosity, sharing in the Bedouin's sustenance of dates, dried fruits, coffee, and

more. This culture of openness and sharing remains a cornerstone of Emirati life.

Dances, such as the mesmerizing tanoura, tell tales of cosmic connections and spirituality. The swirling motion

of the dancers, representing the planets, paints a picture of unity between the heavens and the earth.


Culinary Traditions

The Bedouin diet, sustained by the desert's offerings, revolves around staples like goat meat, rice, nuts, and dried

fruits. Their age-old cooking techniques, employing campfires and sand pits, lend the food its unique flavours.

Beverages, like the qahwa sada and qahwa helwe, quench thirst and invigorate the soul.


Embracing the Bedouin Experience

Today, visitors to Ras Al Khaimah can immerse themselves in the rich tapestry of Bedouin life. Whether it's a serene

camel ride, a henna tattoo capturing the essence of the desert, or the adrenaline rush of sandboarding, there's

an experience waiting for everyone. And while 4x4 dune bashing and buggy rides might not be traditional, they

add a contemporary thrill to the timeless desert.

As the day culminates, you can indulge in a feast prepared by local chefs, savouring the flavours of authentic

Bedouin cuisine, ensuring that the desert experience is etched in memory long after the journey ends.

Al Sawan Camel Racetrack

In the UAE, camels are not just animals; they are symbols of pride, rooted

deeply in the Bedouin and Emirati traditions. Historically, camels have

been invaluable, providing not only meat and milk for sustenance but also

wool for warmth, leather for protection, and swift transportation. They were

celebrated in ways more than one—be it through their significant role in camel

racing or the belief in the medicinal properties of their urine.


Camel racing, especially in Ras Al Khaimah, is a homage to this ancient bond.

The camels that grace the tracks aren't just any camels. They hail from the

UAE, Oman, and Sudan, specifically selected breeds like the Mahaliyat,

Omniyat, and Sudaniyat. Astonishingly, these creatures can hit speeds up to

65 km per hour in sprints. Their very name, Camelus dromedarius, has origins

in Greek, symbolizing their prowess on the racetrack.


                                                                                                    Race mornings are magical in the Digdaga and Hamraniya areas of RAK.                                                                                                                                  As dawn breaks, amidst ancient trees and stunning dunes, one can sense                                                                                                                                  the palpable excitement of trainers and owners. Their eyes are set on                                                                                                                                            grand prizes: luxury cars, trophies, and hefty cash rewards. The race                                                                                                           scene is animated—with 50 to 100 camels, draped in vibrant tribal                                                                                                                                      blankets, casting long shadows in the morning sun.

                                                                                                                                 While traditions remain, technology has found its way in. Gone are                                                                                                                                        the days of young jockeys. Now, robot jockeys—fitted with sensors,                                                                                                                                          two-way radios, and even traditional racing attire—steer the camels. These                                                                                                                                  robots not only guide the camels but also provide trainers with essential                                                                                                                                      data.


The race isn't confined to just the camels. Alongside, 4WDs race,

with trainers passionately cheering their camels, making the whole

scene a delightful chaos.

Ras Al Khaimah's camel racing is an exhilarating blend of tradition

and innovation, an experience not to be missed.

Jebel Jais: Hiking

                                                                   Nestled within this picturesque location is the Jebel Jais Mountain

                                                    kilometres above the shimmering waters of the Arabian Gulf.  

                                                                   However, Jebel Jais is not just about its breathtaking views. Delve

                                                                  majestic eagles that soar overhead with quiet gravitas, to the vocal

                                                                  donkeys echoing their presence, Jebel Jais is teeming with life.

                                                                  For those seeking an immersive experience, various mountain trails

                                                                  ecosystem first-hand.

However, embarking on these trails requires more than just

enthusiasm. While you don't need to be a seasoned climber, you'll

require a good head for heights, a decent fitness level, and, most

importantly, the right hiking shoes to ensure steady footing. Keeping

safety paramount, here are some key pointers to bear in mind:

Assess and Decide: Always opt for a trail that caters to the least

experienced member in your group to ensure everyone's comfort

and safety.

Weather Wise: Being aware of the weather conditions is crucial.

Jebel Jais has its own microclimate, especially during winters. It's

always best to be prepared.

Buddy System: It's not just about camaraderie; hiking with a

companion ensures that help is at hand in case of emergencies.

Leave a Trail: Always inform someone about your hiking plans,

including your intended route and expected return time. This

information can be vital in case of any unforeseen events.

Stay on Track: While the trails are well-marked, carrying a map can be invaluable. It helps you track

your progress and orient yourself.

Hydrate and Fuel: Activities at such altitudes can sap your energy quickly. Ensure you're well-hydrated

and have snacks handy to replenish energy.

Dress Right: Uneven mountain terrains call for sturdy footwear with good grip. Avoid open-toed shoes.

Additionally, dressing in layers helps regulate body temperature effectively.

In summary, Jebel Jais promises an exhilarating experience, blending adventure with nature's beauty.

As you prepare to embark on this journey, always prioritize safety to ensure your hiking expedition
