Travel from Abu Dhabi to Ras Khaimah is now much easy with new bus service.
We might sound bias, but there’s absolutely no place like Abu Dhabi.
Think about world-class museum like the Louvre Abu Dhabi or the theme parks on Yas Island or the various food outlets and the diverse cultural attractions dotted across the city, and you’ll agree that we’re living in one of the best cities in the world.
But it’s also nice to venture outside our beloved city from time to time to explore the neighboring emirates.
What’s amazing about the UAE is that each emirate has its own distinct personality and you’ll surely find something unique in each of the places.
And if you’re a nature lover with an adventurous streak then the emirate of Ras Al Khaimah will suit you just fine.
RAK – as it’s also affectionately called – is home to a wide array of attractions including Jebel Jais (the highest peak in the UAE and setting of the world’s longest zipline), the abandoned fishing village of Jazirat al-Hamra, Shimal and its pre-Islamic tombs, the stunning Hajar Mountains, the ancient Dhayah Fort and the Pearl Museum, among many others.
Now, travelling to the emirate will become easier with the launch of a bus service from and to Abu Dhabi and Ras Al Khaimah.
The Integrated Transport Centre has announced that bus journeys will take place every Thursday, Friday and Saturday.
Buses will depart from Abu Dhabi to Ras Al Khaimah at 2.30 pm and 7 pm.
The fare is AED 35 per person. Meanwhile, those who want to travel from Ras Al Khaimah to Abu Dhabi can catch the 10am and 3pm bus schedule for AED 45 per person.
This latest initiative is part of the UAE’s plan to introduce more transportation means to make all emirates accessible to the public.
