Although the dunes are beautiful, for me the visit was severely marred by the cheesy touristy visiting experience that is offered by all of the tour companies. Skip this if you seek any type of nature or authentic experience; go only if you are prepared for the full on Disney experience, complete with costumes and sound effects.

Spent the night at a camp site and the experience of being on a massive dune watching the sunset and rise was just really special. I've never seen so many stars, even saw 2 shoot stars.

Lots and lots of sand with a 'magical' touch. Hit this on a good day...not too much wind...and a camel ride through the hills.

I would recommend camel ride in and 4 by 4 out as the second day can be a little soar. definitely wake in the middle of the night to view the sky. amazing amount of stars that look so close.
