I have been in this country for the last 10 years. I have not visited all the emirates of U.A.E. yet. The farthest I have been to was Abu Dhabi but not on a leisure trip. I had to take a flight out of Abu Dhabi. The other emirates I have visited briefly are Sharjah and Umm Al Quwain. Then comes Ras Al Khaimah in the list of another emirates state I have visited. Although it was a brief trip but we got to see the beach and the main town in RAK.
I will post pictures as soon as I load them in the computer. RAK is small and quaint. It is like living in the province. Life is very simple and not fast-paced like Dubai and the slightly laid-back Abu Dhabi. I didn't see much of the town. There were few high-rise building but mostly villas and smaller buildings. I can't imagine living there. I just like the city-living.
