A STARGAZING HON­EY­MOON

Emirates Bride - - THE MOOD BOARD -

1. Wadi Al Ar­baeen, Oman

With end­less miles of four-wheel-drive roads, the Wadi is a dream des­ti­na­tion for ad­ven­tur­ers. It’s also a play­ground for the dra­matic dance of the Milky Way at night, best en­joyed within an out­door glamp­ing tent with a te­le­scope at hand.

2. Pe­tra and Wadi Rum, Jor­dan

When it comes to as­tro-tourism, there is noth­ing quite like the mys­ti­cal, his­toric and pol­lu­tion-free ter­rains of Jor­dan. How­ever, Wadi Rum is best known for its spec­tac­u­lar sun­rise hot air bal­loon ride in the day­time, and the fab­u­lous domed stargazing tents at night.

3. NamibRand Re­serve, Namibia

Spend the night map­ping con­stel­la­tions in the lit­tle known hide­out set amidst the red sand dunes and white salt­pans in Namibia’s south­ern Namib Desert. Straight out of a Mar­tian sci-fi, the land­scape truly of­fers an out-of-this­world ex­pe­ri­ence.
