Dubai - Desert 4X4 Adventure!

Sun, sea, sand and skyscrapers - the things that make Dubai a wonderful city. It has the world's tallest skyscraper (Burj Khalifa), the world's first hotel on a man-made island (Burj Al Arab) and reclaimed land which is shaped like a palm tree (Palm Jumeirah). Dubai is also famous for its desert, where 4x4 dune bashing, quad biking, camel riding and BBQ dinner can be done there.

Being the first time on a desert, I admit that me and my friends were a little jakun during our trip in Dubai. Hopped into a Toyota Land Cruiser and the local fetched us to experience the desert safari near sunset time. We were flabbergasted about how fine the desert sand is. The desert was not as hot as we imagined, probably because the sun was setting and we were constantly pampered in the well air-conditioned Land Cruiser. 


Before exploring the desert further, the SUVs' tyres pressure have to be lowered in order to gain more traction with flatter tyres on the fine sand. Then the adventure began! Dune bashing in a SUV is fun, drifting and descending the dunes are like roller coaster ride, minus the 360 degree upside down turn though. All the SUVs are fitted with roll cage, in case they turn turtle while descending the steep dunes. 


A short video recorded in the midst of all the fun! Believe me, experiencing the ride yourself is much more extreme than what the video suggest!


Oh the sun...... Like an egg yolk. What a surreal scene. The dunes with fine sand are hard to climb up!
A rare picture of me (strong wind messed up my hair) appearing in my blog!

Land Cruiser and Nissan Patrol sighted. They are some really good offroaders!


The night ended with camel riding and a buffet dinner on the desert by the stage filled with Arabian performances! Some dancers managed to turn 360 degrees non-stop for more than 3 minutes. Try doing the same without puking! 

It is highly recommended to go for a desert safari tour if you happen to visit Dubai one day! Make sure to bring your sunblock because the sun was scorching hot!

As far as to my knowledge, at night, the desert is a very cold place to be. Did you experience that?

And driving around in an SUV around a desert is not exactly 'desert experience'. It has to be walking in it for hours. XD

Kelvin: Nope it's not as cold as we thought at night too! We did walked in the desert... for like few minutes! Haha!
