However, I was the only one there in a private car. I would not like to be there with a Coach Party as it would not be the same vibe.

A good one time trip - although do keep in mind that its just a big tree. Nothing special about it but looks surreal. They are trying to build some infrastructure around it in terms of some kind of an auditorium. You have washroom facilities,...More

The reason I give 5 stars is simply because it is amazing this tree is still thriving in an area where nothing else is. A little disappointing that there is absolutely nothing else around.

Here's the thing you need to understand, this is a tree in the middle of the desert. So I'll break it down by its main components. Desert: Its pretty hot so bring sunscreen/water. I was there in May and my cell phone overheated while I...More

Visited this place 10 years ago when it was just the tree in the middle of nowhere. While there has been a significant amount of development in the area, the structure that was built makes it more interesting to visit. Walk the perimeter to see...More

First, let's set your expectation level really, really low. It's a tree (a big tree) in the middle of no where. I feel like it's one of those things you do just so you can say you have done it. So for that reason, go!...More

Okay so it’s just a tree but it is a very old tree and is rather interesting up close. The dive through the oil fields (with nodding ‘donkeys’) sets the scene and the desert environment is certainly an interesting experience. There are toilets and a...More

The road to get there is long, windy, through the desert and nothing much to see except oil pipelines and drilling equipment. Better to go on an SUV. The biggest disappointment when you get there is to see what you made that trip for. Yes,...More

Dont bother, the drive was through sandy scrubland with nodding donkeys and pipelines to a little tree on a small hillock. Nothing else there.

it was cool in that the tree is over 400 years old and seems to be the biggest tree out there. There are smaller ones near close-by oases, but it really dominates the little hill. Mesquite trees are native to the Western USA, so how...More

I would say the Mercure or Swissotel or Grand Ellite . All are next to the Seef Mall, but their prices might vary. We have the real estate exhibition from next week so the prices might go up slightly.

Hence my comments. I have not visited for sometime I think the beauty to me is the surrounding countryside. One can see the occasional camel which are herded in the area and the mountainous outcrop is a scenic backdrop. A... More
