The Delights of Visiting Abu Dhabi - Arabian Delights

Abu Dhabi has plenty of spectacular things to do and experience. Here's a list of activities that you can enjoy next time you visit.

1

Experience falconry

If you love animals then falconry is certainly something for you. Falconry is an integral part of desert life and it's been practised in the Middle East for centuries. During your stay at the desert camp, you have the chance to observe some of the best-trained falcons in the world. Visitors are given a chance to lure or fly a falcon during this excursion. Animal lovers are going to love this and the falcon experience guides visitors on the ancient and modern training techniques of this majestic bird.

Quad biking

Quad biking in the desert is a dashing adventure that everyone can enjoy. If you are travelling with kids, its best for teenagers. Riding the sandy waves on a four-wheel bike over the desert dunes can be quite adventurous and its something you try!

3

Horse riding

Over the years horse riding has become one of Abu Dhabi's most popular sports, the number of top-class racing facilities as well as riding clubs around the country is a testament to that. When you visit Abu Dhabi a horse-riding excursion will be a great experience since the country has plenty of indoor and outdoor training facilities for amateur riders. Those with experience can enjoy a variety of horseback riding activities to suit their tastes as well. You can even do a bit of sightseeing in Abu Dhabi on horseback, which is an awesome experience.

Dress like an Arabian

Trying on the national dress of Abu Dhabi is a fun thing to do during your stay in the country. The Emirati men usually wear something called the dishdasha and women wear the abaya with a hijab to cover the head. Snap a picture of everyone in traditional Arabian clothing as a take-home memento.

5

Camel rides

Years ago camels were the main mode of transport in the deserts of Arabia. Today you can relieve that experience at the Emirati deserts. Kids of all age groups can take part in this; the younger ones can ride with an adult. The camel rides usually last for 15 to 30 minutes and it's truly a magnificent experience and something you might just get to do once in your lifetime.

6

Take a desert safari

Desert safaris are best experienced with a local guide, whether you are travelling solo or with others. The guide will usually pick you from Anantara Sir Bani Yas Island Al Yamm Villa Resort or any other hotel from there you can head into the desert on a comfortable vehicle. The guide usually talks about stories related to the emirates, maybe about the customs and traditions or about the desert you will stay in. Fringed with palm trees swaying to the desert winds and comfortable cushion laden tents will await you. A refreshing Arabic coffee with a plate of dates will surely be your welcome snack.
