I visited a camel market not too far away, at AL AIN .. that would be worth a visit if it is still there. Remember, if you buy one & want to fit it in your suitcase, the legs fold backwards.

I'll be in Dubai for a few days next week and your camel has certainly piqued my interest. Did you take it on board as hand luggage or did you have it in your checked-in baggage? I assume enough water is stored in the hump for most journeys. Did you have any problems with the camel adapting to conditions in Canada? I'm looking at alternative methods for getting to work in the mornings. Thanks. x

I think 3-4 days is enough in Dubai, with a day in Abu Dhabi and perhaps some time in Sharjah.

As you have time, I'd highly recommend Oman - it's a great place to visit with lots to see and do and is easily accessible from Dubai.

We've just done a tour of some of the Gulf states and Oman was definitely a favourite - the Old Muscat city was very photogenic and a self-drive down to the Bimmah sinkhole and Wadi Shab through to Sur and then up to Al Wasil for the sand dunes was a highlight. There are plenty of buses and planes between Dubai and Muscat.

As for Dubai, there's actually quite a lot to do here - the old city around Al Fahidi and Diera has plenty to offer - souqs, a Fort and museum, mosques, a boat ride on the creek. We did the tourist trip into the desert for a 4x4 ride, a camel ride and a belly dancing/fire eating show and went up the Burj Khalifa. We saw the fountain dance and there are lots of beaches and architectural buildings to explore. A bit thin on history and culture but it's easily worth four nights in Dubai as something a bit different. (But I definitely prefer older cities with a richer history though!) :)

No room for a camel in my backpack though!

June-August - that's the peak season in Dubai but the hottest season too. It's the best time to go shopping too.
