This trip is like looking at Dubai before the skyscrapers arrived. You’ll hop aboard a jeep for a 45-minute drive out of the city, where the driver will deflate the tyres a little before you hit the sand. Hold onto your hat for the next bit, as you career through the peaks and troughs of the golden dunes. Your jeep will be a four-wheel drive number, so the steep climbs and nailbiting descents are all a breeze for the driver. It’s a far cry from the metallic glow of the city, and barring the odd shrub, you’ll see nothing but desert in every direction. There’s a break in the dune bashing, on the crest of one of the sandy ridges, where you can grab a cool drink and snap a couple of landscape photos. After the tyres have been readied for the road, you’ll head back to the city to board the ship.
