Bassata Desert Village
There is a child in all of us that is always in pursuit of an adventure. Somewhere exciting to go and experience something new and fun. Sinbad, Ali Baba and the 40 Thieves, 1001 Arabian Nights are all tales made us dream of our own Arabian Nights adventure. The adventure that most may think of when coming to Arabia is to live like the Bedouins; in the desert and a tent, living with camels, and nights around the campfire telling stories and enriching ourselves with the culture of the people.
