Ras Al Khaimah Travel Guide: 27 reviews and 198 photos

This is the last city before the Oman Border cause the horn of the peninsula is a Oman territory.
It's a quiet place, with a big shopping area, and a little old center. A big dune protect the city from the sea and behind start the mountain ( at the end of december 2004 snowed there for the first time)
Emirates s a new country because the arab peopel befor the petroleum discovery, lived in the beduin way, in the desert with the big tent, wifes, childrens, animals...the tea, the hawks for the Hunting.....There so big m onument or mosquee, the life was simply......
When u go outside Dubai u can see the beautifull women with the black all over dress, but they are so beautifull, the visage are makeupped, the hands with gold jewels, and the eyes......the young girl have thigt black dress, with long sleves and long skirt but they are very sexy and under the big dress they parobably wear miniskirt, jeans and more.....the man too continue to wear the traditional white cafetano, with the red and white foulard with the black cord on the head ( Kefia) but they ride big 4 wheels or mercedes and the camel (dromedario is better) work only on the touristic beaches or in the country.
