My Vacation to the Arabian Peninsula

Over the summer I went to the Arabian Peninsula, I went to many place and saw how people live and use to live like. When you go there, I want to help you and give you 10 tips about the landscape, environment, how the travel is and some more!

The dessert

Tip 1- The Dessert

The dessert is a hot and dry place, it get little rain and. In daylight it can get above 120*F, at night it gets below freezing level. There are many sand storms and with all that the storms change the landscape.

Tip 2- Oases

Oases are body's of water. They can vary in size some can be a couple acres and some can be large areas of land. Oases happen because there is water trapped underground, the land there is very fertile and has fresh water for stops, they also provide shade and vegetation.

This is a smaller oases, but provides a lot.

Tip 3- Coastal Plains

Coastal plains are 5-40 mile inland, they are dry river beds that sometimes fill up. I suggest you wear clothes that are cool because it it very moist and damp. It rains regularly and there are many natural harbors. People adapt by building irrigation systems and reserved rain water in canals.

Tip 5- Plateau's

There are a lot of plateau's in the Arabian Peninsula. They are a raised area of land, they can be formed many different ways, like water erosion, erosion by glacier and some more. Be careful around these some can go magma deep.

This is one of many examples of a costal plain.

The mountains in the Arabian Peninsula rage from 100-12,000 ft. It is windy and chilly, frost forms so I suggest you bring a jacket. The wind comes from the Indian Ocean. It rains a lot and the dry riverbeds fill up during storms. The mountains range from 1,000 to 1,200 ft in elevation.
