Overnighting in Dubai’s desert isn’t recommended without a guide, leaving a tour your only option. This trip serves up the full “Arabian Nights”-style experience: laying on numerous desert activities before a night in a Bedouin-style tent under the stars. Enjoy a dune bash, sandboarding, camel ride, dinner, and live shows during the afternoon and evening; and wake for an Arabian breakfast and sunrise camel ride the next day.
