United Arabic Emirates
For most people, the United Arab Emirates means just one place: Dubai, the sci-fi-esquecity of iconic skyscrapers, palm-shaped islands, city-sized malls, indoor ski slopes and palatial beach resorts. But beyond the glitter awaits a diverse mosaic of 6 more emirates, each with its own character and affordable luxury allure.
Surrounded by the fierce Hajar Mountains, RasAl Khaimah (or simply ‘RAK’) is the UAE’s northern most emirate. Outdoor enthusiasts love it here, thanks to diverse scenery ranging from sandy beaches to sprawling oases, hot springs to sun-baked desert, all backed by the rugged mountains.
Growth has been exponential in RAK in recent years, resulting in a free-trade zone, an artificial island with luxury resorts, new leisure facilities and a mountain road offering glorious views.
Sharjah doesn’t dazzle with glitz but with sensitivity towards its history and culture, which explains why Unesco declared it Cultural Capital of the Arab World in 1998, recognition reaffirmed in 2014, when it became Capital of Islamic Culture.
If you choose Dubai, RAK or another emirate as your next MICE destination you’ll be more than surprised about the services and quality you’ll receive versus the little cost this implies . The times where the UAE were only for the rich happy few are definitely over. Affordable UAE is the new slogan .
