September has arrived, we’re back at work and the summer already feels like a distant memory. Fret not! In a mere five weeks’ time, you could be heading to the sunny shores of Ras Al Khaimah, as Luxair are opening up direct flights from Luxembourg from24th October until 28th February 2019.
The United Arab Emirates is perhaps more renowned for global cities like the skyscraping Dubai with its super-malls, or the capital Abu Dhabi, home to the magnificent new Louvre museum with its Eiffel-tower inspired dome roof. However, Ras Al Khaimah boasts authenticity, 7,000 years of culture and a sun-soaked coastline.
Stretching as far as the eye can see, Ras Al Khaimah has 40 miles of natural coastline. Think white sandy beaches, crystal clear waters and top-class resorts offering a myriad of water-based activities. Why not try paddle boarding or kayaking amongst the mangroves by the man-made Marjan island, or for a more adrenaline-pumping experience, go jet skiing or wakeboarding. With year-round sunshine, the beach is just calling out, begging to be lazed about on.
Don’t miss out on the emirate’s natural beauty and the terracotta-toned deserts inland. With activities such as dune-bashing, they’re a playground for adventure! The aforementioned activity sees you being zipped around in a 4x4 by a driver, the sand dunes making for a rollercoaster ride. For something a little less bumpy, head out on an excursion to the Bedouin Oasis Camp. Camel riding and sand boarding await, followed by a traditional barbeque dinner and a belly dance performance. Finish the evening with a shisha pipe around the camp fire, before spending a night under the stars in an exquisite traditional Bedouin hut.
