It doesn't need much effort to have fun in a desert - if it's anything like UAE. Spending a couple of days in the tax free haven makes you realise what a big dent the vile 'tax' makes in your paypacket. It comes as a pleasant surprise when you step into a shop or a taxi or a restaurant - in short anytime you need to reach for your credit card. Not to mention the HUGe Indian population that will welcome you at every nook and corner.
I happened to go to a Desert Safari and guess who the organisers were? A team of very enterprising mallus! Guess who were the cooks? Mallus again. There were some people dressed up as Arabs - I really felt that they were just playing a part to appease us. By the way, the belly dancer was a local. Mallus haven't reached there yet.
If you like adventure theme parks, you should definitely try Desert Safari - highly skilled drivers will take you on high-end SUVs through some of the moderately big sand dunes. And believe me, its hard not to scream when you think you are just about to fall off a dune. And sometimes not to throw up.
