Go for A Desert Safari:
Whether it’s a long trip or a short, 24 hour trip – your Dubai trip is incomplete without the desert safari! After the hot air balloon ride, you can go for a thrilling desert experience. The desert safari tour is by far the most popular activity to do in Dubai. Its a 20 minutes ride – where you board onto a 4×4 wheel car bashing the dunes. Although you can experience this in the evening and night as well, due to the time shortage, the best time for desert safari is in the morning.
