Swap Dubai for UAE’s cheaper holiday destination with 30C temperatures & sandy beaches | The Sun

RAS Al-Khaimah is a great – and cheaper – alternative to Dubai.

We found deals to the UAE's northernmost emirate from £621pp next year – working out at £88pp a night.

UAE's second biggest city is known for its endless miles of terracotta-coloured coastline, desert and year-round warm weather.

Ras Al-Khaimah, usually referred to as "RAK,"is a smaller substitute for its neighbour Dubai.

The city is great for any kind of holiday, whether you want to relax by the beach, take in the local culture, unwind with the family or experience the longest zip-line in the world.

Shopping lovers won't be short on options either, as you'll find plenty of stores to explore, selling anything from well-known fashion brands to local hidden gems.

If you'd rather have your meals at the hotel, you could book seven nights at Intercontinental Ras Al Khaimah Mina Al Arab Resort & Spa from £1,283pp.

The price includes a free half-board upgrade, complimentary airport transfers and unlimited access to Planet Trekkers Kids Club and Teen Club.

Plus, kids get to stay and eat for free too.

And the European city dubbed ‘little Vienna’, which is much easier on the wallet and won’t be overrun with tourists this winter.
