Wander the Old City
As the oldest part of Ras al-Khaimah, the Old City is a must if you wish to explore the local culture. There's a souk, where you can hone your haggling skills, as well as an old mosque to snap. The fishing harbour is great for a wander, while the nearby Al Hisn Fort has the Ras al-Khaimah National Museum within its walls.
Learn the Art of Falconry
Ras al-Khaimah is well versed in the art of falconry, with many residents taking up the skill as a pastime. Experience it for yourself with a handler, and see these gracious predators first hand. These interactive sessions will allow you to practise this desert art, without worrying about turning into the prey!
Cool Down in the Ice Land Waterpark
Located near Al Hamra Village, Ice Land Waterpark, within the new WOW Ras al-Khaimah area, has a snow and ice theme. It has a range of attractions, from mild to wild. From the thrills, including Mount Cyclone, to the Olympic-sized pool to practice your strokes, there's something for everyone. Don't worry – the water's not icy!
Step Back in Time in Jazirat al-Hamra
Situated south of the main Ras al-Khaimah city, Jazirat al-Hamra is a fishing village that has stood still over the years. Villagers moved out in the 1960s and the desert has helped preserve the coral block buildings. Wander the ruins and imagine how local life once was, before Jazirat al-Hamra became the ghost town that it is today.
