General & Useful Information 

ATM's, Banks & Currency Exchange 

Whichever your banking needs are, you can find ATMs, national and ineternational bank branches and currency exchange services around the emirate and inside the hotels, resorts and shopping malls. 


The climate is another great reason to visit Ras Al Khaimah. With a cool sea breeze and slightly less dry in the winter than its neighbors, temperatures in the Emirate vary from 18-25°C in January to 29-43°C in July, with eight to ten daily hours of sunshine all year round. 

Population & Local Customs 

Ras Al Khaimah has grown enormously over the last four decades. In 1975, the population was just 43,845 but todays stands at 345,000. A large number of expatriates live in Ras Al Khaimah and the Emirate is more tolerant of other cultures than many of its neighbors. Arabic and English are both widely spoken and used in the media. However, it is important to remember that this is a Muslim society, so local culture and religion should be respected at all times. 


All Emirates within United Arab Emirates use the associated plug type G, which is the plug that has three rectangular pins in a triangular pattern. Ras Al Khaimah operates on a 230V supply voltage and 50Hz. 

Health & Safety 

Ras Al Khaimah is a safe Emirate, but you should always act with precaution. In case of emergency, call immediately: police on 999; ambulance on 998; fire department on 997.
