The U.A.E. has managed to accomplish another ‘first in the world’ feat- chocolates made out of camel milk! A bevy of chocolatiers headed by manufacturer Al Nassma gathered at the Madinat Al Saalam in Dubai this week to launch the confections.
Camels have always enjoyed a special status amongst the fauna of the Middle East. While horses remain an Arab favorite, camels are almost a symbol of the Gulf countries. They perform a variety of functions- as beasts of burden to being Arabian delicacies.
You can even embark on a romantic overnight Arabian adventure on camel back and set up camp in the desert. The experience is a definite thrill, especially for those who are of the adventure-seeking variety!
Let us know what are your preferences and we will endeavor to arrange for a One World experience you will never forget.
Wadi bashing definitely counts as one of the more adrenaline-racing activities you could experience in Dubai. A modern-dayArabian adventure to the core, it is 4-wheel vehicles instead of camels that will help you tame the endless wadis in the Dubai deserts.
Wadis in the Middle East are essentially rocky riverbeds which have dried up. What a wadi bashing adventure is not is for the faint-hearted, as it involves expert maneuvering of the vehicle on part of the driver.
Of course, you could also hire the services of a professional wadi driver but you will still be rattled about in
your seat as he conquers the harsh grounds. Nonetheless, for an Arabian adventure that veers to the extreme, wadi bashing offers a lasting thrill.
One World suggests visiting the Emirate for this Dubai City activity between the months of October and April. Also, unless you have an experience of driving through miles of unalterable rough terrain, we strongly recommend you ask for the services of a trained driver.
It is quite possible to lose yourself in the vast desert regions but with a trained driver or guide you can get the most out of your wadi bashing adventure.
One of the best wadis to traverse in a 4WD is Fossil Rock along the Sharjah-Al Dhaid route. Breath-taking vistas and scenic views are part and parcel of every wadi bashing safari tour in Dubai. If you are in the mood to rough it out, you could carry your sleeping bags and spend the night in the wilderness under the clear night sky.
Most photographs of Dubai present a panoramic view of the man-made islands of Palm Jumeirah and Burj al Arab. The shorelines that have been added by various developers over the years simply go on to extend the coastline of this remarkable Emirate- which incidentally is only 40 kms.
Sightseeing in Dubaialong the beaches is one thing we at One World won’t let you miss out on. The waters are clean and the underwater habitats, beautifully preserved. Take the Jumeirah Beach which is an all-time favorite with tourists and residents alike.
Housing a spectacular 7-star hotel like the Burj al Arab is enough of an excuse to visit this beachfront. It is easily accessible and we can arrange for a Dubai car rental to take you right up to the beach side.
The Jumeirah beach along with the other public beaches have an active lifesaver cell and are safe for children as well. Barbecues, deep-sea fishing, public parks, amusement and recreation areas and even surfing activities are allowed on any beach in Dubai.
The winter months are the best periods of the year to start out on your Dubai Tour Packages if you are of a mind to enjoy the Dubai beach life as well as the choppy waters required for surfing.
Another great beach front to visit while on your Dubai City Toursis the Al Mamzar Park which has a lovely beach side area. The Palm beach too makes for some stunning holiday memories you can treasure.
One World can help out with any Dubai hotel bookings for your family vacation or solo trip. If you are part of a MICE in Dubai, then one of the attractions we can add to your package is a sightseeing trip along the Dubai beach fronts.
