A visit to the Middle East is hardly considered complete without a camel encounter. You don’t have to be a kid to enjoy a ride one of the friendly animals. Many cultural excursions include an introduction to the desert creatures. The Emirates Palace Beach Club offers the experience to their guests on the beach.
Most people are surprised by how high the camel stands when they perch on top of his hump. Beware of the dismount—it can be a bit bumpy as the animal bends down on its knees to drop you to the sand.
