The desert United Arab Emirates
By Amy Adejokun Amy Adejokun Section editor Profile

Discover The desert

In the vast region of Abu Dhabi, the desert includes the village of Liwa and its palm tree plantation that spreads over 50 miles. To discover breathtaking landscapes, you have to drive out of Dubai for an hour before finding the red dunes of the Al Hajar mountain range with its torn peaks and unusual gravel plains.
