Detailed hi-res maps of Dubai for download or print
You can’t come to Dubai and not experience sand, so today we’ve head out of the city, and we’re going on a four by four desert safari through the sand dunes. We are just flying through these dunes. Oh, oh my God, oh my God! Woah! Oh my goodness! These drivers really are the best. The time has come for me to do some sand boarding. Woah, my God, how do I turn? Oh yeah! Just hop on? I’ve never been on a camel before. Woah, boy! Oh, ha ha ha. With all this adrenaline and excitement I can’t help but stop for a second and just take this moment in. This is truly beautiful. All right, the sun has set, and now it’s time to get the party started here on the camp. It’s so neat that you can sit here in the desert with all this happening around you with your friends, drinking coffee, dubai map and travel guide eating dates, and smoking shisha. The belly dancing show has started. Let’s go. I have had such an incredible day, riding through the sand dunes in a four by four, sand boarding, and enjoying all of the traditional food and experiences. You cannot come to Dubai and not experience this.
Abu Dhabi – Visit the Heritage Village
We arrived here at the Heritage Center and we’re gonna learn a little bit about the history of Abu Dhabi. This is a traditional Bedouin tent. And the roof, it’s made of goat hair. While some Bedouins lived in the desert, others lived in the mountain. This is a traditional mountain home. They have some pretty small windows too. A marketplace is known as as souk, dubai map and travel guide and this is where people would come to trade all sorts of goods. How cool to be standing here in a traditional village looking out over the modern city skyline. A visit to the Heritage Center really does give you an education as to how Abu Dhabi was then and now.
Abu Dhabi – Visit the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque
Abu Dhabi is home to one of the largest mosques in the world, the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque. This is believed to be the third largest mosque in the world. 22,000 square meters or five football fields. This is the main prayer room. It can hold upto 7,000 people. This wall here, faces Mecca and has the 99 different names of Allah, or god. This is the main courtyard. I can’t even imagine what this would look like with a sea of people all praying. Around the courtyard, there’s 82 domes. How neat we’re here when they’re doing the call to prayer. So beautiful. I have loved this dignus mosque. All the detail and colors and marble, it’s just more incredible than I expected.
