"Participate in the Desert Fun Drive." Top 5 Page for this destination United Arab Emirates Off The Beaten Path Tip by Faiza-Ifrah

  4 wheelers hit the sand
by Faiza-Ifrah

Participate in the Annual Family Fun Drive, a 2 days event that is held by the Gulf News in late January. This pix is from when we participated in the year 2000. You can drive your own vehicle, but register well in advance. The cap is for 750 offroaders and the applications are 4 times as many. Security cover is good - route marshals, police, recovery vehicles and airborne security - all keep a check. Everyone has to camp out at night with lot of entertainment going on, e.g. belly dancing, magic show for kids and fireworks.
