Dubai is a top destination for scuba diving, especially off the Musandam Peninsula. Never mind shopping in the souks- in Dubai you can dive like the pearl fishermen. There are also lots of wrecks and reefs to explore which are ideal for those who enjoy an active vacation. Dubai is also renowned for its desert safaris which are done as a day trip or overnight excursion. If your idea of fun is powering up a sand dune in a 4 x 4 vehicle and driving down the other side then this is for you. There are drives down wadis and narrow river beds too. The expert drivers will show you skills behind the wheel that you never thought possible. The overnight experience is a very special way of seeing Dubai where you’ll drive to an Arab camp after a day in the dunes. This is a great way to experience the famous Arab hospitality and you can see falconry, ride a camel, and even get your hands hennaed. There’s nothing quite like a feast from a camp fire in the desert and the night sky overhead. Seeing a desert sunrise is also very special. In Dubai you’ll find all kinds of entertainment from hot air ballooning to skydiving and windsurfing. The shopping here is renowned in the souks and the hotels are luxurious.
