Dubai is the most populous city in the United Arab Emirates, and it stretches along the coast of the Persian Gulf, with an expanse of desert surrounding the city on three sides. From Dubai, it's easy to organise an excursion into the desert. Both Fossil Rock and Camel Rock are two popular destinations. These rocks offer a place to picnic in the shade as well as a great view of the shifting sand dunes that surround them.
The famous Camel Rock is home to a particular treasure: a monolith where you can admire many fossils.
