One of the world’s most modern cities has sprung up in the middle of the desert. The world’s tallest building, the world’s biggest mall and a string of manmade islands sit alongside a traditional culture and cuisine that go back centuries.
It’s a baffling yet intriguing place.
Here’s my trip as recorded via Instagram.

Camels seeking shade from the desert heat…
Sand, sand and more sand! Dune bashing in 4WDs.
