Dubai and/or Oman

Jump to last reply

I'm planning to spend 4 days in Dubai over New Years. Is a desert safari a full day trip? I looked at a few hotels in the desert but they were very expensive; are there any that are more moderately priced (maybe US$200-300). Should we spend a day in Abu Dhabi? Are we going to get bored in Dubai and so should we split the time between Dubai and Muscat (or somewhere else in Oman) instead (and maybe add an extra day or two to our time in the region), especially since we want to go to Dubai for the NYE fireworks but hotels are very very pricey and/or booked up? Our goals for the trip are (1) see the NYE fireworks at the Burj Khalifa and (2) get a feel for the Middle East and its culture as it's a region we've never been. Thank you!
