If you are in Dubai and you have 45 minutes you can reach Ras Al Khaimah. It is like the real paradise on Earth. The capital and largest city of the United Arab Emirates’ Emirate of Ras Al Khaimah is Ras Al Khaimah. It is the sixth-largest city in the United Arab Emirates. A river divides the city into two sections: Al Nakheel in the east and ancient town in the west. The significant Islamic-era settlement and port of Julfar were formerly located in the northern section of the city. It is now famous as Ras Al Khaimah (RAK). One of the rare sites in the nation and the world where this is true is Ras Al Khaimah, where people have lived there continuously for 7,000 years.
As harbor channels accumulated silt over time, archeological evidence has shown that the Julfar town moved. Early Julfar is thought to have been situated close to other places of historical and archaeological interest such as the Pre-Islamic fort, “Sheba’s Palace,” which was discovered during excavations of a huge tell that uncovered vestiges of a Sassanid era stronghold (Shimal Fort). Whether you enjoy sports, shopping, or history and tourism, Ras Al-Khaimah has a lot to offer.
