Dune Bashing and Desert Safari in Abu Dhabi, UAE

Who is this? What happen? 

If you go to middle east without trying dune bashing and dessert safari, then your trip is not complete. Experience a day out in the desert, feel the blazing hot sun day time and cool wind in the evening. 

Last month, mac I was in Dubai and Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates (UAE) so I extended 2 more days in between to go sight seeing. This was my second time to the desert safari, the first was in Dubai some time ago. Few of my colleagues have not try so I joined them. This time we go to Abu Dhabi desert yay… 

We were picked up by 4x4 wheel drive from our hotel around 3.30pm. There were seven of us including the driver in the car. The weather is hot despite is just march (spring), not yet summer. The temperature during the day is blazing hot and the sun was like shining directly into my eyes making me hard to see. Really need to wear sunglasses. 

This is our driver… handsome?

On the way... still smooth ride

Our first stop... 
The driver reduced the tyres air pressure and get ready for the dune bashing 

Like roller coaster or drifting in the desert 

I survived the dune bashing... 
Feel slightly nausea

Omg… at first we laugh then scream then later someone called for emergency stop because she needs to vomit. It was like roller coaster in the 4 wheel drive for about 40 minutes. I survived the bash… phewww. The first time I vomited. The driver did a few stops so that we could take pictures at different locations. 

Second stop... many camels here

 Is he talking to the camel? Yes

 After i looked around, finally I decided... I want to take picture with this camel 

 Try to communicate with camel wor... lol
Ask permission first if i can take picture with her...

 Yay... permission granted 

 Third stop

 Feel the sand, so fine

Finally we reached the Camp almost 5pm already

Take a short break & lepak
Have a cup of Arabic Coffee & dates

Coffee or tea? This is what we got... 

I prefer to rest outside than inside this tent

Camel ride...
this pose not so cool la

 I am in Arbaya...

Belly dancing... wootz

  Some having fun dancing 

 Some enjoying  Hubbllee Bubblee (Shisha)

Well, its time to go back

We departed at about 8.30pm. It was a good experience especially for the first timer. In the evening, about 6pm onward the temperature drop and the wind make me feel so chilly. Actually there are still many interesting places in UAE, if i have time i will 

This week I am going to Guangzhou, China again L that means no facebook, no twitter, no blogging. I can only access to my email, sigh… boring. Never mind, if I have time I will go out search for some interesting places… I will be silent for a week.
