Experience the Thrill of a Hot Air Balloon Ride Over Dubai’s Desert

Dubai is not just about the magnificent skyscrapers, huge shopping malls, and almost countless amusement parks. It also has an array of sites that display exquisite natural scenic beauty. Sparkling beaches by the azure sea and the golden sands of the desert just outside Dubai are among the top draws for international tourists.

Yes, the desert. The golden-hued sands are spread across many miles, creating a visual marvel. More so, during sunrise & sunset. You can explore the desert in an SUV, indulge in some dune bashing, or take a more sedate & graceful camel safari.
