The Rub Al Khali or Empty Quarter, is the world’s largest desert; Covering 650,000 sq km, it stretches from the United Arab Emirates to Oman, Yemen and Saudi Arabia. This desert has been deemed by some to be “impassable”, due to its harsh and punishing conditions. Some men have managed to cross it, but never a woman – until about six weeks ago. On March 28, Hajar Ali of Singapore, completed the desert crossing, making her the first woman in the world to cross the Empty Quarter.  Channel News Asia Empty Quarter Interview: or here
