Teaching in Ras Al Khaimah allows you to live with a slower pace, a strong community feel and an adventurous, outdoorsy lifestyle. Far from being a dusty hinterland, RAK boasts a variety of landscapes which offer unique combination of the four different landscapes found in the UAE: fertile plains, striking mountains, coastal beaches and mangroves, and the desert. RAK is a leisurely city, with a multitude of activities on offer such as diving, hiking in the surrounding mountains, bird watching, wadi bashing, desert safaris, playing golf or quad biking. You get the picture – there’s a lot to do!
To get a great overview of the beautiful city when you arrive, you can visit the oldest residential area in the city of RAK (Ras Al Khaimah Old City), and experience the souq, mosque, fishing harbour and Al Hisn Fort, now home to the RAK National Museum. Here you can explore the impressive archaeological heritage and rich cultural history of Ras Al Khaimah which has existed since 5,000 BC.
