The Peak Singapore December’09

Flights of Fantasy
For the literary minded, tracing the footsteps of Wilfred Thesiger, famed
colonial explorer and travel writer, is an added draw on a trek through the
Arabian Peninsula’s Empty Quarter. Urbane Nomads is one company that offers
an itinerary for this area, based on the theoretical shopping list of the
Biblical Three Kings- gold, frankincese and myrrh. A desert stay may sound
forbidding, but on a luxury-soaked journey of tented camps, elaborate Berber-
styled setups and charismatic guides, framed by the splendour of an Omani
sunset, there’re not many other places you’d rather be.
