2. Dubai is extremely safe. You'll never have to worry about your bag or phone being stolen.
3. The official language is Arabic but everyone communicates in English. This makes it a great place to practice your English in a social context outside of the classroom.
4. An endless possibility when it comers to dinning and socialising.
5. Incredible architecture/buildings for you to visit.
Ra Al Khaimah is the most northern emirate, and over the last few years has distinguished itself from other emirates by opening world-class adventure activities such as the longest zip-line in the world. In contrast to Dubai, Ras Al Khaimah is a lot more traditional and quieter. If you're looking for a small town experience and love outdoor adventure then studying in Ras Al Khaimah is your best option.
