The journey from Dubai was so scenic and calm, in between the desserts of the emirates i got some real amazing shots of it. Ras Al Khaimah may not be as well known as its UAE neighbour, Dubai, but that’s precisely what makes it a uniquely compelling destination for travelers looking for something a little different. The most northern of the country’s seven emirates, this hidden gem offers a truly authentic Arabian experience, from its golden beaches, lush mangroves and terracotta deserts, to the towering Hajar mountains bordering Oman.
