DUBAI-LAND OF DREAMS

I call Dubai land of dreams because someone in right mind wouldn't have imagined what the Rulers of Dubai did with a Desert City.


The Pic still doesn't do justice to the vibrant city of U.A.E. The best part you have a perfect mix of old and new. In one corner you will have Sooks with traders selling Arabian artifacts and rugs, and in another part, you have sky high buildings which tower over other buildings of the WEST.

I go to Dubai 3-4 times a year and every time there is something new to explore. A new disc, a new restaurant or a new tourist attraction. Just need a good time, go to Dubai.

As an Indian, you don't feel so out of place. Cab drivers(mostly from Pak) tells you more about the city than the online sites. You want Hyderabadi Biryani they know the place, you want Punjabi chicken, they will call a relative who runs a small restaurant and you want nice Marwadi thali they will give you all the details.

You can go there as a tourist or as a businessman, it's quite an adventure.

In the coming posts I'll discuss other things about the city which as a tourist you should be aware of and things you should definitely explore.

Would love to learn how you see Dubai from your eyes, mostly know it by Shopping Festival or through the incentive travel comprising of a Dhow Cruise Dinner and Desert Safari.

THE SAFARI.....

DESERT SAFARI is the biggest attraction of Dubai.



You have SUVs bouncing over sand dunes as you hold onto the interiors of the car for balance. But lets see from start.

1. It takes 1.5-2 hrs to go the Safari location from the main city. So plan your timings according to that. Never do it on the same day you arrive, because it's tiring and you don't wanna feel over traveled. Safari is done near SAHARA border.

2. Book it before hand because on the spot bookings are more expensive and they give you a backup car, which I once found are not that good and that also if available.

3. You can carry your own food and snacks. Because once you go there, there are no shops for refreshments. Drive is also easy as they allow you to hook up your own songs and they have many Hindi radio stations. even better than in India.

4. The first spot is the QUAD BIKING location. It's NOT included in the safari. You have to pay from your own pocket on the spot. For one person it was 150 AED/30mins and 250 AED/30mins for 2 on the same bike. You can switch anytime you want. The 30 min slot and prices keep varying on the basis of the time of the season. They have an enclosed parameter where you can ride, over dunes or in circles around the boundary. The bike is very safe to drive but check it for any problems because they won't change it in between.



5. You also have camels for rides there, which I never did, but looked fun.

6. Then your driver will remove all the air from you car tires and take you to a specified place in the desert for the safari. They will stop the car in between when you can get put and enjoy the desert. They open up the car hoods to cool off the car.

7. Now it all depends on your driver. How good he can drive and how much risk you wanna take. In my experience once I found a bad driver who just wanted to drive around with no fun and go back soon. So it all depends on your agent booking the trip. But it's mostly safe and with no complications.

8. No, you can't take you own car unless you wanna pay a hefty fine. Unless you have a property there to do it.

9. Then the drivers will take to a tent city in the desert for your Dinner and after Safari Entertainment. In most of the tents. they have a boundary made of tents, a large empty flat area in between. A big stage in the middle, surrounded by carpets and tables for sitting. Your tour guide area is fixed where they make people sit according to the tour company they fixed.

10. NO WAITER SERVICE is there. You have to go and get the starters in line from various counters. They have separate lines for men and women. The food is pathetic for my taste. Some find it good, but never me. I have been to 4 different tent cities and all were mostly same.

11. Don't dream of sitting like a NAWAB while girls in Arabic dresses serve you BBQ. It's mostly like a Langar, Just your standing with people from other cities for food. If budget is not a problem you can book other high ends one which provides better service which we really dream of. there you have personnel area with your own BBQ. But need a loose wallet for that.

12. Th food quality again is not good for my taste. They serve both veg and nonveg. But as a vegetarian, it was pathetic unless you book a high-end tour, which I must say serve excellent food. most of the Safari is now commercialized and they just treat you like they would do in INDIA.

13. Hookah is not served on the table unless you ready to pay extra cash for it. It's free but to serve it on the table they charge. For free they have a common area where you can go and sit and sip it.

14. They have small counters for shopping, sand arts, and stuff. It varies from tent to tent.

15. People will be moving with eagles in their hand which you can put on your arm and have a pic clicked. Again chargeable.

16. 3 Shows are there in most of the tents- BELLY DANCE, TANOURA DANCE & FIRE SHOW.



17. All are performed well and quite entertaining. Much better than anticipated. But you really wanna enjoy a belly dance, book a personal dance. You get much better experience and fun. Again that needs a little cash and pre-booking.


18. Then again dinner requires standing in line and not up to the mark.

19. The driver will then takes you back to your hotel.

MY TIPS:

1. Book a high-end tour if you really wanna enjoy the Safari.
2. Go for private tent and personnel entertainment.
3. Don't expect much from the food, carry your own for snacks and go to a good restaurant on the return. But it gets very late by the time your back so its up to you.

Good one you summed it up properly. it's really for high end payers to get the proper feel of a desert safari, but the belly dancers there are of not that quality as we find in Egypt or Jordan. Had been over 30 times to Dubai but never saw a good belly dancer in any of desert camps there.

Did you not visit Abu Dhabi, Desert safari there is far better than any of Emirates, you really feel like sliding down a sand mountain.

I had been to Dubai for a short visit. Attaching a photo also.



You should add more information such as the shopping malls, the Airport Duty free shops and the Atlantis Hotel in Palm Deira.
