Day 6: Desert Safari May 20

Active travelers will find a wide range of land and water sports in Dubai.

Venturing outside the city of Dubai for a full day or even overnight, you can enjoy a desert safari in 4 wheel drive vehicles, camel riding or even sand skiing or sand boarding. For an extended adventure, feast on an evening  barbecque buffet while listening to traditonal music in a Bedouin tent. The edutainment might also include a falconry demonstration.

Meanwhile, snow skiing and toboganning are available at the indoor Ski Dubai in the Emirates Mall.  You may even engage in a snowball fight with your companions in a separate area.

Horseback riding and trekking are also available. Water sports enthusiasts can go scuba diving and deep sea fishing. And with several world class golf courses to choose from, golf addicts may even play at night on floodlit greens.

At the end of  a busy day, relax with some pampering at  a local spa. The Morroccan hammam or bath ritual begins with an invigorating exfoliation, followed by a relaxing steam bath and finally a rassoul clay wrap.
