6 Glamping spots in Dubai for those who fancy a night under the sky

6 Glamping spots in Dubai for those who fancy a night under the sky

One of the best things about Dubai is the winter season here. Things do not get too harsh during winters here. Winters in Dubai would make people want to get out of their homes. Thankfully, Dubai has enough outdoors to provide you with the best camping experiences.

If you want to experience overnight camping in Dubai deserts but you are holding back because you are not too comfortable being out there, then glamping is for you. Glamping is simply luxurious camping.

Glamping sites provide you with necessary amenities like beds, toilets, and food, unlike camping where you have to bring yourself everything. But then glamping will cost you some bucks, unlike camping which in most cases is free of cost.

If you are looking for a perfect time outdoors, here are some of the glamping spots in Dubai you need to check out.
