A few kilometers away from the fancy skyscrapers of Downton Dubai there’s also sand. A lot of sand in fact. I definitely recommend doing a desert tour. It was my first time in any desert and seeing sand and nothing but sand was impressive. Driving over sand dunes in a SUV is also a lot of fun. Sandboarding was kinda meh, you’re better off if you go snowboarding in the mountains. The camp we went to at the end was touristy but the food was very good. Middle Eastern food is now definitely on the list of my favorites.
