In the wetlands, just metres away from the bustling city of Dubai, you’ll find the Ras Al Khor Wildlife Sanctuary. It’s hard to believe you can find tens of thousands of birds in a spot so close to the city. This wetland reserve spanning 6.2sqm also serves as a breeding ground each year for crustaceans, mammals and fish, but it is the flamingos that steal the show in winter.
