Summary: Learn how to survive a month in the UAE in style.

The UAE has some of the most exciting cuisine and night life in the Middle East, and it’s a popular destination for British tourists with growing popularity in the rest of the Western world too. And why not? During summer time, travel rates are very affordable enough to where one could easily justify spending upwards of an entire month there.

Dealing with Transportation

One of the challenges you’ll need to overcome is transportation. The UAE is very hot during the summer, and tourists are encouraged to either hire drivers or rent a car in Abu Dhabi. Renting a car opens up the island in a way that using public transit doesn’t.

The secret trick here is to pick a 4×4 for your monthly car rental in Abu Dhabi. The terrain in the UAE can be unpredictable, and you’re not far from desert landscapes anywhere you go. Lots of people enjoy spending time out in the backcountry, where you can go offroading or camp out for the day. It’s a very serene experience unlike anything else in the world. You just don’t want to be in a situation where you car is stuck in sand, so an all-terrain vehicle will help greatly in this respect.

Finally, even if you’re staying within city limits you’ll want a car. Taxi service is available all day and all night, but the costs add up. The UAE is known for dramatically reduced costs for cars, especially luxury vehicles, so car rentals in Abu Dhabi, Dubai, and UAE will typically cost far less over the course of your trip than hiring a taxi or a driver would.

A frontier is the extreme limit of settled land beyond which lies wilderness. And Alaska, most definitely, is a frontier worth visiting over and over. With places to visit like the Stikine riverand Petersburg Alaksa, there is so much to be done in this great state. However, with the sheer size of Alaska, it’s best if you plan your visits ahead of time so you can maximize all the time you have in your visit. Whether you’re looking to hike national parks, observe bears, or even take in the sights at Mount Mckinley, the Glaciers, and even the drive alone from Seward to Portage is just breathtaking. If you live in an urban jungle, visiting Alaska would definitely be a welcome change of pace especially since there is so much of nature that’s preserved here. You can’t just help but stop and marvel at the many wonders that this place has to offer. If you love to hike, you should also visit places like Denali National Park, Wolverine Peak, the Williwaw lakes, or even go sea kayaking. These are just a few of the many activities that you can do in Alaska. If you’re up for it, you can also go on a cruise, do some sightseeing, and even visit a bear observatory where you can see majestic brown bears and black bears in their natural habitat. These are some of the things that you simply can’t do back home, so you should definitely try it out.


What does the Anan Bear Observatory have to offer you? Bears, and lots of these majestic creatures.
