Tourists From Around The World Are Taking Part In This EPIC Journey Across The Empty Quarter Desert
The fabled Empty Quarter desert is one of the most barren and isolated deserts on the planet. There have been a few travellers in the past who have traversed through the inhospitable desert and have achieved worldwide fame.
And, now with the reformations taking place in the tourism sector, the Empty Quarter desert is again open for adventurous souls who want to take part in the journey of a lifetime.
In fact, the first of such journeys is taking place now.
Sunrise is zero hour. We'll cover ground until midday and pick up the pace again in the afternoon. Taking on the desert day by day, night by night. See you at the finish line. #Rakayib pic.twitter.com/wwz2hv06FU— ركايب | Rakayib (@RakayibKSA) February 19, 2019

Called Rakayib, the journey is surely a once in a lifetime experience for the participants.
Women are taking part too.
Anna (from Japan) and Sebastian (from Mexico) are absolutely thrilled about experiencing the Empty Quarter for the first time. Here, they’ll make memories, friends, discoveries, and breakthroughs. #Rakayib pic.twitter.com/csICgSsa9a— ركايب | Rakayib (@RakayibKSA) February 25, 2019
