    What is it like living in RAK compared to the other major UAE cities like Dubai, AD, Sharjah, Al-Ain?>

    Doesn't matter what the package is, its RAK. Not the greatest of places to be.

    If I was with children (the OP mentions costs for children so I'm presuming he has some or why mention it) I wouldn't go to RAK. Not a family type place, much better in the region for families. The little ones will be bored beyong belief - not that there's too much for adults there, but a single guy without family might not mind long drives to get to civilisation...

    Sorry, will rephrase what I said...
    Ok place for a quiet weekend, that's about it.

    Thanks for warning me about this place, it does seem dull and boring even through 'google images'.

    I have a friend who moved there in Sepember and is loving it. I supposed that that just goes to show that different people have different tastes. He and his wife are rather older and his family has grown up and left home so there's not a problem there. He's been sending back pictures of trips out into the desert, courses in falconry, scuba diving, etc, etc. It doesn't seem to the palling for them, but I don't suppose they're planning on staying there for years and years...
