You cannot leave the Dubai desert without a picture of you jumping up in the air! The best part is that you may need about 15 takes before you get the perfect picture. From ‘jumping over cars’ to group pictures where one person jumped too late – you’ll be in fits of laughter by the end of it.

This is one of the craziest desert experiences and it is definitely worth a selfie! Make sure you take it when you’re speeding through the sand dunes. Tourists –  don’t forget to wear a keffiyeh (traditional checkered scarf) to get that Arabian look.
