UAE winter is here and the cooler climates provide the opportunity to explore the beautiful deserts of the Emirates and explore its otherworldly landscapes.

Although camping is one of the most popular outdoor activities in winter, not everyone wants to pack everything in their car and go camping. For those who want to discover the magnificent golden dunes and who prefer to sleep in crips, fragrant sheets, there is glamping (or glam camping).

As part of the World’s Coolest Winter campaign, the UAE government’s media office has compiled a list of the top 10 glamping spots in the UAE.
