From Ras Al-Khaima to Dubai and back

To go to Dubai at least for one day, many tourists want, resting in the hotels of Ras Al-Heima. Of course, I want to watch Burge Califa, Dubai Fountains and Dubai Mall. How comfortable and quickly you can get? How much will the bus or taxi cost cost? Read the answers in this article.

Prices, schedule and other information in this article are relevant on February 5, 2021. Do not forget about strict Macid-security measures in transport in the UAE, read the article on the link above. As of February 2021, Ras Al-Khaima Dubai buses go, their movement was restored on August 6.

Distance between Emirates

And although Ras Al-Khaima is the most northern emirate in the UAE and the most remote from Dubai, the distance on Russian standards is small – a little more than 100 kilometers between cities centers. Between the borders of the Emirates even less – about 55 kilometers.

UAE card with cities and resorts, see our article "Map of the UAE".

Taxi – fast and comfortable

The first convenience of taxis – you can take it right from the hotel. We recommend ordering a taxi, not catching on the street. If you catch a taxi on the street, not every taxi driver agrees to go so far, you can lose time in search of a consonant taxi driver. You can order directly at the hotel’s reception, you will still go to the meter.

Important moment! When ordering, ask whether it will be the official taxi RAKTA and what will the tariff. Tourists write to us about cases when they caused a premium taxi with a double tariff.

Order a taxi to Etisalat Metro Station, this is the closest station Dubai Metro. Already dubia easier to move on the subway – cheaper and without traffic jams. Metro map in Russian and travel prices, see our article "Dubai Metro".

Taking time on a taxi – 1-1.5 hours. Price – 220-250 Dirhams on the Counter. Actual course of the Emirate Currency, see the article "Dirham UAE". Tariffs See our article "Taxi in the UAE".

Al Hamra bus – cheap and available

Local Al Hamra is engaged in bus transportation between races al-Khaima and Dubai (and other Emirates).

Great news! Finally earned the service online-selling tickets for Al Hamra buses (earned in October 2020). You can immediately see the schedule, choose places in the cabin and buy a ticket. Site – Rakbus.AE (in English). Registration is required on the site.

In Ras Al-Khaima, buses depart from Rak Bus Station (Ras Al-Heim’s bus station). It is located opposite the Beach Hotel Cove Rotana. Buses are marked with a red sail "Al Hamra Bus" logo, see the Picture below.

Arrival point in Dubai – Union Bus Station, which is near the Union Station Metro Station.

Accordingly, in the opposite direction (from Dubai to Ras Al-Khaima), Al Hamra buses depart from Union Bus Station, arrive at Rak Bus Station.

Time on the bus on the bus – maybe up to 2 hours, strongly depends on traffic jams in Dubai. Price – 25 Dirhams.

Flights from Ras Al Khaima to Dubai: 5:30, 7:30 And then every hour, last flight at 21:00.

Flights from Dubai to Ras Al-Khaima: 8:00, 9:30 and then every hour, last flight at 21:30.

For lovers, scrupulously consider finances want to pay attention to that before Rak Bus Station from the hotel will have to go by taxi. For example, from the farthest (from the bus station) ONE TO ONE Mughal or Hilton Ras Al Khaimah Taxi will cost 35-40 dirhams!

Bus Rak Shuttle – something comfortable, something is not

The authorities of the Emirate of Ras Al-Khaima declare their goal in the field of tourism – 1 million visitors per year. In order to achieve this goal, in February 2018, special buses RAK SHUTTLE were launched. They run between hotels in Ras Al High and Dubai Airport.

Attention! As of February 2021, RAK SHUTTLE buses do not yet go. We are waiting for their fast restart.

The main convenience of these buses – they take tourists right from hotels.

The main inconvenience is a terrible schedule and buses go only twice a day.

Book tickets need to be available on the official website http: // Rakshuttle.COM /. Booking is possible only for tomorrow!

An important nuance! The bus picks up tourists not directly from each hotel, but from several. Need to understand in advance whether it stops near your hotel, and if necessary, go to stop in the next hotel.

Fare price – 30 dirhams. Time in the way of 45 minutes (stated by the organizers), in fact more than 1 hour.

From races al-khaim in dubai. There are three routes.

Route 1: Selects Passengers at Hilton Rak, Hilton Garden Inn (Nearby hotels in Tulip Inn Rak, Doubletree, Citymax), Bin Majid Beach (Nearby hotels in Mangrove, Ras Al Khaimah Hotel), The Cove Rotana.

Route 2: Selects passengers from hotels: Jannah Resort and Al Hamra Convention Center (near Al Hamra Residence hotels, Waldorf Astoria, Al Hamra Village, Hilton Al-Hamra, Ritz-Carlton Rak).

Route 3: Selects Passengers at Bin Majid Beach, Rixos Bab Al Bahr, Doubletree Marjan Island, The Cove Rotana. This route takes passengers throughout Al Marjan Island.

All these routes arrive in Dubai to the airport, stop at Terminals 1 and 3, where you can sit on Dubai metro.

Rouute flights 1: 4-00 in the morning and 21-00, routes 2 and 3: 4-00 in the morning and 22-00. Once again, we pay attention that only two flights per day.

From Dubai to Ras Al-Heima.

Buses take passengers from Terminals 1 and 3 Dubai Airport. Take all hotels.

Flights: 6-00, 8-00, 10-00, 23-00, 00-00, 01-00.

Minuses more than pluses.

First, get up will have to get very early, skip breakfast at the hotel. Secondly, you will come to Dubai about 5-30 am, everything is closed, there is nothing to do, except for how to look for a miracle open eatery, where you can have a snack.

Consider that on Friday the subway works only from 10-00. On Friday, it is better not to plan a trip at all, since the sacred day of the week of Muslims. Read our review "Friday in the UAE". Third, back come back the earliest at 00-30 night.

From the advantages you can note buses of high comfort – with free Wi-Fi and free drinks. Another plus – time in Dubai will be a lot, even more necessary.

Hydroplan – very interesting

What else do you need to know

From Ras Al-Khaima to Dubai and back

– There are two airports in Ras Al-Khaim, but none of them get to Dubai will help. There are no flights on this route;

– There is a method to get expata from India, Pakistan, Iran. They are going to the bus station and combine together for a taxi trip. If you own English, you can agree with them and take advantage of this method. But while temporarily, this method does not work, since in the UAE now it is impossible to go to a taxi to more than two passengers, these are covid security measures;

– on Al Hamra buses Pay only by Dirhammi. Read our article "How and where to change currency in the UAE";

– If you get to Rak Shuttle to Dubai Airport, then you will need to get from the airport to the city. Read our article "How to get from Dubai Airport to the city".

Alexander – Glavred site

I do not answer from Rakda. Rakta too. Better Al Hamra, so reliable.

Al Hamra, these are buses from the station M.Union who are going? There is no ticket online? Only book you need, they like every hour go?

Alexander – Glavred site

Yes, from Union. Tickets Now (January 2021) You can have to buy in place everywhere. All these restrictions on the sale of tickets lived live. Everywhere cashiers work as usual.
Moreover, now through rakbus.AE Booking does not work. Gluchet.

Rak Shuttle – They can be used to move from Dubai airport to Ras El Hayim? Ural airlines suddenly moved away from another emirate ((. How best to come?

Alexander – Glavred site

To answer your question, I need to imagine – what and where you have been transferred? Where and where you fly away? Where are you at?
