The only way to tackle the terrain that rolls out of Dubai is by four-wheel drive. Forget ships of the desert – jitterbugging your way across the sandy hills is a million times more fun. In fact, it’s such a popular gig here the locals have nicknamed it dune-bashing. You’ll roll over mounds of sand the size of buildings at high-speed. Usually you’ll then be taken back to a Bedouin camp for camel rides, shisha smoking, belly-dancing and some Arabic meze.
