If the likes of Dubai and Abu Dhabi seem too commercialised and overrated for your liking then you should plan your next escape to another neighbouring emirate that has a completely different feel to it; without forgoing any of the luxury the UAE is famous for. The quiet and apparently unassuming emirate of Ras al-Khaimah has plenty to offer in the form of history and seaside beauty. You can discover it all from the ultra-luxurious Rixos bab Al Bhar all-inclusive resort, an opulent property with some original touches that reflect the heritage and culture of this Arabic nation.

Some countries also have strict custom laws on what items you can import and export. Always check with the local tourist board before travelling.
Be aware that prior to visiting some countries you may need to get specific immunisation against some diseases. Consult your local GP and check with the FCO website to find out if you will need any vaccinations before travelling. Also, to ensure your health is covered while you’re away it might be worth investing in some health insurance. In some countries this is a strict requirement.
Some countries require specific permits or visas to allow entry. Please ensure your passport is up to date in advance and check the FCO website for more detailed information.
