Located just a few miles north of Dubai, the city of Ras Al-Khaimah has a population of around 250,000. The town is split into two major districts, Nakheel and Old Ras al Khaimah. A number of events take place here throughout the year that are worth checking out, like the sand-dune race, Awafi Festival and the half marathon. The city dates back to 3 Century BCE and used to be called Julfar. Explore the Al Jazirah Al Hamra- a ghost city and the Dhayah Fort which is the only hill-top fort in country.
