No one quite lets you in on just how excruciating a 50 minute camel ride is. Unfortunately i had to cut it short because of how painful (and more importantly, uncomfortable) it was
Very convenient way to see the best side of Abu Dhabi, by riding on camels to get to the Arabic camp where you can enjoy your sheesha and coffee, and of course, the stunning view
After the super exciting (but tiring) camel ride, I was so happy to get to the camp, where they stuffed good food and entertainment in my face. Was very impressed by the zest of it all
