BEST known for its endless miles ofterracotta-coloured coastline, desert and year-round warm weather, Ras Al-Khaimah is a great – and cheaper – alternative to Dubai.

We found deals to the UAE's northernmost emirate next year from £519pp next year – working out at £103pp a night.

Ras Al-Khaimah, usually referred to as "RAK,"is a wonderful 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 store to explore, selling anything from well-known fashion brands to local hidden gems.

The best offers come from Travel Republic, a travel agency part of The Emirates Group.
