Almost every person I know who lived and still live or visited Dubai has done the Desert Safari Trip. It’s a good trip and is also cheap. The package includes pick-up from any point in Dubai, Dune Bashing (drive through the desert with a 4-wheel drive),  20-30 mins Dune Driving, Sunset Photography, Camel Rides, Belly Dancing show, Henna Painting, Hubbllee Bubblee (Shisha), Buffet and BBQ Dinner, Bar and Drinks and Photo op wearing the traditional costumes. The pick up time is between 3-4pm and drive back to Dubai City Centre is 9:30pm. Sand Skiing is an optional add and you have to pay extra if you want try this. There are a lot of tour businesses at City Centre who can arrange this.

Dune Bashing

I did this together with my Dubai Metro office mates as one of our ‘Office Shenanigans’ a.k.a. bonding moments. Hahahaha Most of those who joined were of course, the HAPPY HAPPY Filipino Crew! 🙂 Such fun times and one of the really good memories of my life in Dubai.

Desert along Al Awir Road

It was my first time to ride a camel. I don’t seem to look too happy on this photo. LOL.. It always seem like I’m gonna fall over.

Camel Ride with Ate Dorie

This trip, I reckon, is reasonably priced between 120-140 AED, around $32-40 USD.  For all the stuff included in the package. Dinner and Belly dancing on a camp somewhere in the desert was quite a treat too! 🙂

Belly Dancing Show


This is one of the funny things, the photo op wearing abaya! LOL Most of my friends told me it suits me quite well. I can be mistaken to be a local. Hahahaha

Tin as an Emarati 🙂

So all of you who’s planning to visit Dubai, this can be one of the things you can add on your list! 😉 Happy Travels!
