This is a collection of images taken during two separate long weekend trips to Dubai. In Saudi Arabia there is a work holiday in September for Saudi National Day. So we have a long weekend available and typically fly over to Dubai since it’s only a two hour flight from Jeddah. Our first trip was on Sept 23rd – 25th of 2017 and the second trip was September 20th – 22nd of 2018.

Dubai Desert Safari
We really enjoyed the Dubai Desert Safari. You have a professional driver and they know the paths fairly well and will be more aggressive on the dunes. Only caution is if you are prone to car sickness opt for the shorter safari. If you are more interested in just desert scenery rather than extreme driving then I would recommend Wadi Rum in Jordan over Dubai. Finally, for our family our favorite option is doing our own safari in the Jeddah Desert east of KAUST.
