Places to go and things to do in Ras Al Khaimah

Wander the Old City

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 and a museum to visit. 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 popular pastime. Experience it for yourself with a professional handler and see these gracious predators up close. These interactive sessions will allow you to practise this desert art, without worrying about turning into the prey!

Experience Jais Flight

For those seeking an unforgettable adventure in Ras Al Khaimah, look no further than the awe-inspiring Jais Flight, the world's longest zipline experience. Perched atop the towering Jebel Jais peak this heart-pounding journey promises an adrenaline rush like no other. Brace yourself for an exhilarating ride, soaring at speeds ranging from 120 kmph to a thrilling 160 kmph, all while traversing deep ravines, canyons, and jagged peaks that loom 1680 meters above sea level.

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.
