Ras Al Khaimah is one of the seven emirates which UAE consists of. I really feel fortunate for being able to visit RAK (as they call it) within my first month of stay in UAE, courtesy of my dear friends of course. Shukran!
Things we did in Ras Al Khaima ’bout to roll now.
Mina Al Arab
Our first destination was Gold’s Gym located at Mina Al Arab, Lagoon Walk. Gym rats you say? Nah. Our friend needed to workout that day so we just accompanied him. At least we had a chance to stroll and see an amazing view of the lagoon. Awesome, right?
While waiting for our fitness buddy to finish his workout, me and the rest of the gang tried to see some places around.
Ice Land Water Park
Passed by this huge resort and had a bit of a peek inside. The entrance fee was ranging somewhere between 100-150 dirhams per person. Umm, hopefully we can afford next time we visit lol.
Al Jazeera Al Hamra
Next stop, a town known for its abandoned houses and ruins.
Al Hamra Mall
Because the temperature outside was freaking scalding and it was nearly lunch, we went to the mall to refresh ourselves and fill our hungry tummies.
National Museum of Ras Al Khaimah
This might be the most interesting part of our day by far. That’s because I have this penchant for museums, and this one looked like a fortress which added up a pinch of thrill in our experience — like a portal to a different era. Pretty good place to impress your date, and won’t hurt your pocket too!
Al Marjan Island
The real agenda for this out of town trip is to visit our friend’s relatives. Their place was near the beach which again is in favor for us. Yippee!
And after seizing the day, it’s always the karak tea that ends the day better. Hmm. Masa elkhayr!
