e-Map, Ras Al Khaimah

Ras Al Khaimah, located at the north end of the coast of the Arabian Gulf, is one of the seven Emirates that form the United Arab Emirates. Ras Al Khaimah is nestled between the Hajjar Mountains on the East and the Arabian Gulf on the West and shares mountainous borders with the Sultanate of Oman.

Ras Al Khaimah is rapidly reinventing itself as the Middle East’s best tourism hub. The majestic Hajjar mountains scraping the clouds at 1900 meters, the lovely Musandam peninsula, calm blue seas with clean white beaches stretching over 40 kms, dramatic desert dunes, timeless cultural legacies and the special warmth of Arab hospitality. All these fuse seamlessly at RAK. The city of Ras Al Khaimah, the capital of the Emirate, is divided into two parts by a creek. The western part, known as "old Ras Al Khaimah", comprises government departments, educational institutions, shopping malls, hotels as well as residential areas and new construction projects. The eastern part, known as Al Nakheel, houses the Emiri Court, some government departments, markets, Ras Al Khaimah Exhibition Center, hospitals and residential areas housing the majority of the city’s population. The two parts of the city are linked by a bridge and a network of modern roads.
