Moved up to RAK just over a month ago and enjoy living here.

The drive from here to DIFC where I work usually takes about hour ten on a good day on the 611 but one smack up on the Sharjah area and it does blow out.

Return journey usually can take a tad longer due to the lane squeezing on the trucks at the Sharjah/New Mosque area but as long as you are chilled about it then its not a problem.

The pro's so far are outweighing the cons.

Just curious - have you moved up there to save on the rentals or is there more of a reason (the lifestyle)?

Bit from column A......bit from Column B.

The reduction in rental is a big plus and no getting away from that, day to day living is more relaxed and cheaper.

Plus you get to see another side of the UAE you would not ordinarily see or experience with the Dubai sheltered life.

If I could also add the B/S o-meter up here seems to be considerably lower than what we experienced in Dubai it is refreshing.

Not all sweetness and light though...but its all how you look at it in general.
Felixtoo2 and rsinner like this.

If you like a game of darts go to pebbles Bar in Bin Majid beach hotel (opposite side of roundabout to the Carrefour turn), some decent people used to get in there.

Is that the old Marina Bar? Had some very expensive nights in there LOL.

One particularly memorable morning was having a Bacon sandwich and a pint of stella at 9am during Ramadan 2013, not because i wanted the Stella as such, just because i could - it truly is another world up there.

The one behind Royal Breeze, large deck area outside, smallish bar and a stage for some truly useless bands.
