Bateaux Dubai Dinner Cruise

Ever boarded a moving restaurant before? Well, now’s your chance. Gleaming in the dark is the glass-enclosed Bateaux Dubai, a flat boat turned superb restaurant. Created by a French company by the name of Seine Design, the boat cruises along the Dubai Creek and wanders down under the Al Maktoum Bridge. Onboard, you’ll enjoy a 3-course meal, served by high-class waiters. You’ll be enchanted by the pianist who will gladly accompany your meal with delicate tones and soothing melodies. Sip on the finest French wines while you start on your canapés. As you dig into your main course, the cruise will pass the lit up Twin Towers, and the Grand Mosque is only outshone by the star-lit night. What a way to spend an evening, a truly one-of-a-kind experience and time well-spent.

Getting the hump

Although there are plenty of chances for you to get to know what a 4×4 vehicle handles like on the desert dune, It just wouldn’t be a complete trip to the Middle East, without a camel ride. Just near the Hajar Mountains is a camel farm where these often overlooked creatures are bred and taken care of. You’ll get to experience the ancient lifestyle of the Bedouin people who kindly make the desert their home and don’t wish to move into the city. They’re kind and welcoming and allow tourist to ride their camels as well as feed them. You’ll be allowed to feed baby camels milk and learn about their lives as well. Feel free to take photos as the camels are reared from birth and quite used to standing still around humans; no panicked frolicking due to a camera flash here. If you’re willing to, you can ride the camels up and down the dunes to truly appreciate their somewhat clumsy-looking bodies.

Abandoned castle

If you want to escape from the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city, take a trip to discover some ancient citadels. Riding a coach down to the towns of Al Dhaid and Dibba Al-Hisn. There you’ll get to walk through the Fujairah Fort, a structure that’s been there since before Islam came to the land. A unique European round shape design, for some reason it doesn’t look out of place just sitting there in the desert getting battered by the sand winds during the night. The village of Dibba played an important role in maritime trade which finally forced the merchants to build settlements which are still around today. It’s not easy to pin down the exact time period these structures were built, but they distinctly show a Roman-Catholic design, so some say they could date back to the early part of the 18th century.
