Visit Abu Dhabi
Abu Dhabi is the capital of the United Arab Emirates and has a modern city with a rich culture and heritage. The city is home to many museums, parks, attractions that you can visit during your trip. Abu Dhabi also has good nightlife options for tourists who want to enjoy their time here in the city. There are many shopping places where one can buy souvenirs from this place or from their trip if they want to take something with them home with them.
Private Desert Safari
A private desert safarione of the best ways to experience the beauty of Dubai. The tour will take you through Dubai’s most popular desert sites, such as the famous camel race track and sand dunes, before stopping at a luxury camp where you can spend some time relaxing and enjoying traditional Arabic cuisine.
What to expect from private desert safari in Dubai: The private tour will take you through various parts of Dubai’s vast deserts in a 4×4 safari vehicle. You will be able to see some of the most beautiful natural sites in Dubai as well as get up close with many different animals native to this region, such as camels, lizards and ostriches!
What should I wear? It’s recommended that tourists wear comfortable shoes during their trip because they’ll be doing quite a bit of walking once they reach their destination (around 8 miles total). Additionally, sunscreen is imperative for those who want to protect themselves from harmful rays; even though it might seem like overkill at first glance due to its distance from Earth’s sun compared with other countries closer out there on these continents like Australia or South Africa which don’t receive nearly enough sunlight annually…
Red Dune Desert Safari
The Red Dunes are located in the Western Region of Dubai. It’s a great place to visit if you want to see some of the most beautiful sand dunes in the world and enjoy an off-road driving experience. The red dune desert safari in Dubai will cost anything from AED 300 to 400 per person. You can also visit this location if you’re interested in trying out other activities such as sand boarding or camel rides.
The best way to get there is by renting a car or taking public transport, which includes buses and taxis. However, keep in mind that both options will cost more than just driving yourself since they aren’t included within your tour price. Once you get there, try walking around before heading into the desert! It’s worth seeing this area before heading out into the open desert where there isn’t anything else around except sand dunes (and perhaps some wildlife).
Keep these things on hand while at The Red Dunes: sunscreen, water/drinks (especially if it’s hot outside), sunglasses/hat/sunglasses mask combo because those sands hurt when they hit your eyes unprotected! Also bring along some snacks so no one gets hungry during their adventure – but remember not all foods are allowed so make sure yours isn’t either before arriving for safety reasons 🙂
Visit Fujairah Fort
As it is one of the oldest and most interesting places to visit in Fujairah, the Fujairah Fort should definitely be on your list. This old fort was built in the late 18th century, but is still used as a military base today. Located right on top of a cliff overlooking the sea, this fort has stunning views and plenty of history to explore.
The Fujairah Fort was originally built with stone and brick and has since been expanded upon by adding additional buildings over time. The current shape of the structure resembles an octagon shaped star with each point being surrounded by walls filled with cannon openings for defense purposes. There are also multiple watchtowers throughout this historical site that provide an excellent view of both land and water surrounding it.
Al Ain Zoo
Al Ain Zoo is one of the oldest zoos in the world. The zoo is home to more than 200 species of animals, including giraffes and camels. It’s also a great place to visit with family and friends. If you’re looking for something more than just an ordinary day out at a zoo, then Al Ain Zoo is sure to be on your list!
