Take a holiday in Dubai to experience a mix of excitement, entertainment, and relaxation.
Get in touch with nature at Dubai Desert Conservation Reserve and Umm Suqeim Beach. Do your shopping at The Dubai Mall and Gold Souk. There's still lots to do: admire the landmark architecture of Burj Khalifa, head off the coast to Palm Islands, ponder the design of Dubai Fountains, and contemplate the waterfront views at Dubai Creek.

Ras Al Khaimah

Ras Al Khaimah ©
Nicknamed "the Rising Emirate," Ras Al Khaimah may be an unfamiliar name to many tourists, but has been tipped as the next Dubai thanks to its steady development (along with the rest of the U.A.E.) of luxury resorts, retail districts, and shopping malls.
Step out of the city life by going to Al Jazeera Diving & Swimming Center and Waterskiing & Jetskiing. Step out of Ras Al Khaimah with an excursion to Abandoned Ilyushin IL 76 in Umm Al Quwain--about 46 minutes away. And it doesn't end there: look for all kinds of wild species at Wadi Bih, get your game on at Rak Track Karting, admire nature's wide array of creatures at Rak Zoo, and take in the awesome beauty at Jabal Bil Ays.

To see other places to visit, where to stay, reviews, and tourist information, you can read our Ras Al Khaimah trip itinerary planner .

You can drive from Dubai to Ras Al Khaimah in 1.5 hours. Alternatively, you can take a bus. Traveling from Dubai in January, plan for a bit cooler nights in Ras Al Khaimah, with lows around 14°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 14th (Mon) to allow time to drive to Fujairah.

The commercial and business center of the U.A.E., and the largest town along the east coast, Fujairah features busy office buildings, shopping malls, and giant fields of oil containers.
Get in touch with nature at Hatta Mountain Bike Trail Centre and Al Hefaiyah Mountain Conservation Centre. Deepen your sense of the past at sights like Al Badiyah Mosque and Dibba Society for Culture Arts and Theatre. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Fujairah: Khor Fakkan Beach (in Khor Fakkan) and Scuba & Snorkeling (in Dibba Al Fujairah). There's still lots to do: see what you can catch with a fishing tour, step off the mainland to explore Snoopy Island, pause for some serene contemplation at Our Lady Of Perpetual Help Church, and tee off at Tennis & Country Club.

If you need a break from the U.A.E's two mega-cities, take a trip to Al Ain, a refreshing oasis of green amid the harsh desert.

Next up on the itinerary: take in the awesome beauty at Jebel Hafeet, identify plant and animal life at Al Ain Zoo, buy something for everyone on your list at Al Ain Mall, and don't miss a visit to Al Ain Oasis.
