The 1st location is Near Bab al Shams - 24.810856, 55.242230 ,This location is not far away from Dubai , around 80 kms, its dark enough to see the milky way but the visibility is much affected by the light pollution of the city lights
The 2nd location is at Al QudraLakes 24.834980,55.376352, which is also near Bab al Shams , and the beauty about this location is the foregrounds (water lakes and trees) , but still the light pollution issue can be strongly noticed.
The darkest area so far in the UAE is Razeen desert 23.525208, 55.010090 and as in the map below , its in the middle of no where and very dark, the problem with this place it is very far , no Telecommunication networks and above all there are no remarkable foregrounds.
One more location is Hatta 24.783730,56.114081 and specifically in the areas near Hatta pools and around the 2 main dams in Hatta , there is light pollution but luckily its all coming from the north , west and east . except for the south towards Oman Border which is where the big bulg (Galactic Center ) of the milky way rises and sets.
Liwa Desert 23.116323,53.788250 , It is having beautiful sand Dunes , but there is some annoying light pollution
My all time favorite location / Wadi Shawqa - (25.034765,56.021040),
1-It is close from Dubai (maximum 1 hour taking Maliha road).
2-The location can be reached with buses and regular cars
3-The place can accommodate several numbers with freedom of multiple compositions and ideas.
4-Above all the location is relatively dark enough for such type of photography and it is having some beautiful foregrounds.
