Your cultural itinerary includes sights like Abu Dhabi Falcon Hospital and Heritage Village. Discover out-of-the-way places like Corniche Beach and Saadiyat Public Beach. There's still lots to do: explore the striking landscape of Mangrove National Park, buy something for everyone on your list at Yas Mall, get a new perspective on things with Boat Tours & Water Sports, and head outdoors with Outdoor Activities.

A trip to Al Ain, a refreshing oasis of green amid the harsh desert, offers a scenic break from the hum of Abu Dhabi.

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.
Visit Al Badiyah Mosque and Dibba Society for Culture Arts and Theatre for their historical value. Relax by the water at Khor Fakkan Beach and Dadna Beach. Explore Ras Al Khaimah's surroundings by going to Scuba & Snorkeling (in Dibba Al Fujairah), Fujairah (Al Hayl Castle & Sandy Beach) and Masafi Fort (in Masafi). There's still lots to do: take your sightseeing to a higher altitude at Jabal Bil Ays, tee off at Al Hamra Golf Club, stroll through Wadi Bih, and head outdoors with Corniche Ras al Khaimah.

To find other places to visit, more things to do, reviews, and other tourist information, you can read our Ras Al Khaimah day trip website .

Drive from Al Ain to Ras Al Khaimah in 2.5 hours. Alternatively, you can do a combination of taxi and bus; or take a bus.
