Why leave the UAE when everything you need for an incredible summer vacation is right here on your doorstep? Ras Al Khaimah (RAK), just 45 minutes from Dubai, is home to stunning white beaches, awe-inspiring terracotta dunes, the highest mountain in the UAE and an incredible range of kids-go-free offers.
With that in mind, we invited adventurer and devoted family man Ali Al Jassmii to try out some of the brilliant offers lined up at five-star hotels across RAK. On his first trip, he stayed at the renowned Waldorf Astoria Ras Al Khaimah, home to incredible restaurants and fantastic free activities for kids.
Watch the video below to find out how the Al Jassmii family got on.
Also part of the incredible summer campaign are Bedouin Oasis Desert Camp, Al Hamra Golf Club, Sea Wings aqua plane tours, the RAK Track go-kart centre and the family fun-filled Iceland Water Park, as well as a magnificent 64km of pristine beaches. With these and so many more attractions in one place, a trip to RAK is one of the best-value holidays you’ll have all year.
RAK may often be thought of as a great place for a quick weekend escape or break from the fast pace of Abu Dhabi and Dubai, but there’s so much to do here you’ll need at least a week or two to really get the best of the emirate. Enjoy hiking, trekking, kayaking or mountain biking at unique landscapes or go horse riding among Arabian oryx and rolling red dunes. Stargaze and learn the old legends of the night sky.
Everything you need for a perfect vacation is right here, just 45 minutes from Dubai. No lengthy flights, no airport hassle. Only adventure and total relaxation await. www.rasalkhaimah.ae/kidsgofree
