A day & night in the Desert
What an amazing experience. This day was unreal and went so perfectly.
Booked through - platinum-heritage
Tour guide (he was great – his name was Wesam) picked us up at our hotel in the afternoon in a Mercedes G-Wagon.
Drove for hours through the desert, close to the Oman border – surrounded by wildlife. We were able to get out wherever we wanted to take photos and feel the sand. The sand felt like flour, it was incredibly smooth. I have never felt anything like it. I could have lied in the sand forever.
-Falcon demonstration during sunset. Able to hold the falcons.
-Camel ride to dinner
-6 course private dinner – Arabic food on a table made of antique Arabic wooden door. Next to table is a majlis (place to lay / sit) with silk carpets and fluffy cushions, by a bon fire
After dinner – bonfire, henna tattoos, bellydance performance, smoked shisha
We were in the desert from the afternoon until about 10pm. It was incredible and definitely my favorite day in Dubai!
Who was on this trip with me - My cousin Kaelynn
