Living in Dubai, where there is no dearth for fun, socializing, shopping, movies, restaurants or incomparable party experiences, we often have our hands full all week long. Although, what if you’re yearning for a break from the hustle?

What if you need to escape but don’t have enough money to travel to an exotic destination?

Peel UAE’s glossy layers off and you have countless options for adventure. UAE’s terrain ranges from vast stretches of sand, pristine beaches, rocky mountains, oases, to mangroves.

Ideally October to March is the best time to camp in the UAE and Oman. The temperatures vary between an average of 18 to 35 degrees centigrade depending on the month.

If you plan to visit the mountains, always remember the temperature is probably 10 degrees cooler, and the nights are cooler still. When camping near the wadis, be careful of flash floods. The rains fill up the wadis in an instant. Do look at the weather report for the week before you begin packing.
