UAE is known for Dubai's modernity and skyscrapers. Sometimes we are in need of a getaway, and camping is something new for those who are used to the city life. But, if you ever wondered how is it possible to go camping, here is your guide.

You will need a tent, a sleeping bag or bedding and some pillows, as well as some a good water supply and food. A spade, useful if you need to dig your car out, a cool box and cooking equipment are also worth an investment.
It’s important that you respect nature though so remember to take bags so that you can pack up all your waste as well and leave nature the way you found it.
