Not many people are aware that one thing that you can do just outside of Dubai is to take a safari or camel ride out into the desert. This is a pretty amazing experience, to say the least. As few people get see experience this type of hot and barren landscape.
If you are an adrenaline junky, you can try your hand at sand boarding, while out in the desert. Or, if you are looking for all the fun of a thrill, with a little less personal danger, why not take part in the spot of Dune Bashing? This is offroading, conducted in a 4×4 in the desert.
Dubai Luxury Hotels
Dubai is the glamorous and popular location for honeymooners, and with the wealth of hotels on offer, it is easy to see why. You really can push the boat out here, and stay in some of the most spectacular custom built residences in the world.
