Garden-hopping in Sahara
It is a unique as well as fun experience taking tours around gardens amidst a desert! Well, that is exactly what one can look forward to in Algiers. Even from the aeroplane one can view the huge green circles contrasting with the browns of the desert. El Oued, Djanet and Tam are other places around Algiers that offer good plantations and gardens for a daytrip. A novel way indeed to enjoy 2011 holidays in a desert.

Stargazing in Atacama
One of the driest deserts on the earth, Atacama offers wonderful opportunities for stargazers. In fact, you get to see so many more stars than you could even expect to. On a clear night, spotting Saturn, Mars and Sirius is also quite easy. With expert guidance at hand, stargazing in Atacama is bound to be a fruitful endeavour. Another must-see in Atacama is the beautiful sunset at Valle de la Luna. Your 2011 holidays would become all the more memorable for the things you carry back home in your mind.
Off-roading in Al Ain
A four-wheel drive through the little thronged desert of Al Ain lets one have a real taste of the Gulf. Al Ain was part of the famed Silk Road and an excellent region to watch the varying colours of the desert, especially between November and March. And in case you are lucky enough to encounter a rain while you’re here, get ready to be invited into one of the desert picnics locals undertake after it has poured. A cool off-roading idea for spending an exciting holiday in 2011.

Arabian Nights
Leaving behind the five-star glitz of Dubai, it is a good idea to go for an overnight safari amidst rolling red sand dunes towards the south. Evening camps, wild camels and sizzling barbeques add to the feel of the whole desert holiday. Live the Arabian nights on a sunny desert holiday in 2011.

Driving to Salalah
Over 1000 km drive from the south of Muscat to Salalah is an experience of a lifetime. One will encounter extreme hot lunar landscapes dotted with lone petrol stations. If you happen to be in this part of the world during the rainy season, light drizzles, slight fog and beautiful green hills will greet you.

Death Valley National Park
A drive through the Death Valley in California is quite movie-like – with miles upon miles of desolate desert. The northwest stretch of the park has the Eureka Valley which is simply breathtaking where a hike to the peak also lends amazing views across the dunes. The Stovepipe Wells Village offers magical sunset views as you sip on a chilled mug of beer.
