15 extraordinary things to do in the United Arab Emirates.

From flying with falcons to delving into Arabian art, the UAE hoards plenty of secret travel treasures – here’s how to find them.

1: Be a Bedouin for the day
Which emirate? Dubai
A mere 60 years ago, life in the Emirates was nomadic. Tribes hunted with falcons, travelled by camel and lived in tents woven from goat hair. Platinum Heritage’s one-day  tour offers a glimpse of those pre-oil boom days, with a camel ride to a traditional desert camp, an Emirati cooking lesson, campfire storytelling and a falconry display.

2: Horse-ride through the desert
Which emirate? Ras Al Khaimah
The Arabian horse is a noble breed indeed: elegant, powerful and utterly beloved by Emiratis. Saddle up at Al Wadi Equestrian Centre, part of the plush Ritz-Carlton Ras Al Khaimah hotel, for trail rides through the surrounding desert reserve or sunset jaunts across the dunes. Camel riding is also available on request.
