Our Dubai and Cairo venture was an ideal juxtaposition of ultramodern with the antiquated.

Dubai tries to end up the world’s head vacationer goal. With great expense rates, it is presently home to overall uber enterprises. Credit is because of the decision sheik with his innovative vision and super resilience. He’s the inverse of xenophobic.
The 7 emirates are sandwiched between Iran, Qatar, Oman and Saudi. Each small kingdom is led by an emir or sheik. Quite a long time ago, Dubai was a sluggish town for pearl plunging and camel exchanging. Today it grows at a surprising rate with 800 miles of new shoreline included from the man made islands. The several new islands in The Palm and The World are noticeable from space and desert safari price. This place that is known for sun, sand, ocean, snow and sex is a pocket of opportunity in Arabia with so much titles as; “Las Vegas of the Middle East”, “St. Tropez of the Gulf” and “Monaco of the Desert.”

It holds 40,000 admirers. There the ladies in our gathering needed to cover make a beeline for toe in acquired dark abayahs (kind of a burka.)
One night was our Desert Safari. Our band of 8 jeeps headed profound into the desert for some “hill slamming”. Our driver Ahend pitched like a plastered mariner adrift over the steepest hills. As I shouted, he talked on his mobile phone.
We landed to a rose camp desert spring for eating and moving under the stars, similar to the Arabian story of 1001 Nights. My most loved time was spent on our recreation day with its unlimited alternatives.
