I am looking to find a custom desert dinner with camel rides for a small group. What is the best one?

Also what is the best place for locally made goods? And to find any traditional gifts? Any favorite dinner "cool" place for food and drinks?

Thank you!

I am not sure about the custom desert dinner with camel rides but you can find them in most safari's.

You can find locally made goods everywhere everywhere, you can find at Shangri-la many of it, you'll find small kiosks and shops in every mall where they sell traditional things, there are also tents located in various areas like Baniyas where you can get many budgeted items.
As for souveniers many suffice with dates or mini camel dolls, and since UAE national day was just around the corner you can find many local things everywhere, even supermarkets.
As for the food and drinks, depends what kind of food you're in for and whats your budget and how many people will be going with you. As they can range for different prices for up to 300$ for two people.

Hey Jenna,

There are lots of different desert tour companies for cheap prices all around UAE and especially Abu Dhabi. You can search on Google and I'm sure you'll find at least 20. Desert driving is a hobby in UAE, we have a private group that organises trips every weekend we don't do tourist trips but we always welcome anyone who wants to join us and would be more than happy to show you the Uae desert. Check out our site. www.uaeoffroaders.com
There are plenty of bars around dubai and Abu Dhabi so it so depends what you like. Sport bars, Irish pubs night clubs everything is here.
If you are looking for food here then you are in the right place. UAE is a multicultural country so whatever food you are looking for its here, it's all around!!!
