Comprising eight different countries, the Arabian Desert, conjures images of rich sultans, majestic horses, stunning sand dunes in the sunset and camels galore. Located in western Asia, this desert is a staggering 2,330,000 sq km/900,000 sq miles. It encompasses a major section of the Arabian Peninsula. Within the desert is the Rub al-Khali – the world’s largest continuous body of sand –  which runs from Iraq to Jordan.
