The winners of the awards were defined by a fair and unbiased selection process done through online voting and judged by a panel of jury consisting of the travel industry’s luminaries.

As per Mr. Haitham Mattar, CEO, Ras Al Khaimah TDA “It is a very prestigious award, and we are proud to have won the award in ‘Best Upcoming Tourism Destination’ category. We are focused on promoting Ras Al Khaimah as a preferred choice of tourist destination, and an award such as this, further reinforces our motivation to work harder to increase India arrivals to the emirate,”


The northern UAE emirate recorded a 22 per cent rise in Indian hotel guests between January and September of this year when compared to the same nine-month period in 2015.

Now, this sounds quite interesting! For all my readers, this is a place one “must” visit during travelling to Emirates.  As per the records, the way it is flooded with travellers, it is expected to even go higher than this &  it is indeed a matter of pride!
