Many tourists visit Dubai (or the UAE) thinking its just about the Vegaseque glamour … but behind the city borders there are all kinds of fun things to do and see specially for the outdoors fans… I came across this book while living in Dubai; it’s the EXPLORER’s Guide to Off-Road UAE  and it highlights different places around the UAE worth visiting … What I like about this book is that it comes with many tips such as what’s the nearest gas station along the road, the best camping spots, what’s suitable for a 4×4 only and whats not, the best time to visit and many other tips ….so next time you visit the UAE grab this book from any bookstore around and then start planning your trip..

    Yes, people matters first. 🙂 BTW, are there any rental car service in Oman? Does Kuwaiti driver’s license valid there? Sorry for the rabbit trail.
