A group of desert-goers had quite a surprise when they ran into none other than Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum.
The ruler of Dubai shared pictures of his chance encounter with the business group on his Twitter and Instagram accounts on Saturday.
In one of the photos, the Sheikh is pictured along with his young daughter Al Jalila and the group of Chinese employees.
I was in the desert with my daughter Al-Jalila, and we came across a group of employees having brainstorming session under a ghaf tree. I liked the idea. Their company is from China. I sat down with them and asked them about some of their ideas and we talked about their experience in the UAE. I enjoyed my time with them
Another picture shared on Twitter shows the group under a Ghaf tree, which is native to the deserts of Dubai.
