Is This the Ultimate Summer Escape? HH Sheikh Hamdan Seems to Think So

The HH Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum world tour continues. The jet-setting royal has been on a well-documented expedition of the globe in recent months, fueling our wanderlust with the jaw-dropping images he routinely shares on his Instagram account. From exploring the volcanic Faroe Islands to off-road trekking in Tanzania, the Crown Prince of Dubai’s social media feed is a virtual look into all of the beauty the world has to offer. Now, it seems that the seasoned traveler is on a mission to check off even more stops in his must-visit travel list. The young royal, who is affectionately known as Fazza to his legions of followers, is currently in Mongolia, if his series of envy-inducing snaps is anything to go by. However, it won’t be the first time His Highness has visited the East Asian country—the royal previously journeyed to the landlocked location last summer.

Situated between bustling China and Russia, Mongolia is often overlooked by travelers, but it’s easy to see why HH Sheikh Hamdan is drawn to the sparsely populated country. Nicknamed “the land of the blue skies”, Mongolia has been relatively untouched by modern life, serving as the perfect antidote to the busy city. Travelers will find recluse in venturing into the lush green valleys via horseback, hiking through the steep and craggy mountains, exploring the myriad Buddhist temples and villages, taking in the blanket of bright stars in the clear night sky, and enjoying the unique Mongolian gastronomy, among other things. Below, check out what the Crown Prince got up to in Mongolia. BRB, booking our flights now.
