Hey guys! Today’s post was really exciting for me to edit! It was my first time to a desert and I was excited to dress for it. We decided to do a quick shoot in the desert because I knew it was going to be breathtaking! I mean, IT WAS BEAUTIFUL!!!!! An experience I definitely wanted to capture.
Before the desert tour, I struggled a little deciding on what to wear. Also, being in the Middle East, you have to be mindful of what you wear. It is always important to be respectful of the culture wherever you go. I thought the desert would be scorching hot and I wasn’t sure if shorts were allowed. So, I chose this maxi skirt I had with me and it was perfect! Something flowy, loose and with light material works very well in the desert. To be honest, a late noon tour was great because the sun was slowly starting to set and it wasn’t very hot anymore.
I try to catch the sunset wherever I travel to. This experience was by far the BEST I’ve had so far. The serenity of being in a desert with such great company and best of all, a beautiful sunset. It was worth the experience!

What was included – Desert Tour AED275 per person:
- The transport to and from the hotel
- Sand dune riding
- A camel ride experience
- Buffet dinner with non-alcoholic drinks
- Belly dancing entertainment
You spend about 4 hours in total during this tour. Anything additional such as riding the ATV and alcoholic drinks are charged separately. Pretty good for first timers like me. If you ever visit Dubai, check with your hotel concierge about such tours.
