My husband and I really wanted to go to Egypt to celebrate a huge milestone this summer but we don't feel like is the time. I'd love to be immersed in a true Arabian market or "souk" and see some cool antiquated architecture etc. And...not to mention see the beauty of a desert landscape and ride a camel at sunset. Will I get this experience in Dubai or has it lost all of it's charm and originality as it has catered to tourism? We are also planning on heading to the Maldives afterwards- we just got back from Bora Bora and while beautiful it just isn't the same as the beauty we found in the Maldives. So Dubai and Maldives is what we are thinking and hopefully will give us the "Arabian Nights" experience! Any thought or suggestions?
