What to do in Ras Al Khaimah

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.

Top 10 Free Things to do in Abu Dhabi

        Traveling to the Middle East for sight-seeing is not in most people’s plans. While politics may cause concern for most, the reality is the United Arab Emirates is a bastion of peace and stability. Though the UAE just celebrated its 42nd birthday, visitors will be delighted to see a paradox of old and new culture in and around the capital city of Abu Dhabi. While one could spend easily enjoying its luxury, there is plenty to see and do in the United Arab Emirates on a limited budget or for free.

Festivals, food and friends on Jeju Island

If you’re worried about what to do during all your free time here- stop. There’s so much to see and do especially if you’re on the mainland! I didn’t have Facebook before coming here, but it has proven to be immensely helpful in seeing what sorts of events are happening where and when.  You can easily get yourself to another province by bus or train if you’re on the mainland and many people leave Jeju for the weekend and spend it shopping/eating in Seoul or Busan.
