10 Reasons Everyone Should Visit Dubai This Summer

Burj Al Arab

Dubai is a city that experiences extreme heat during summer. From the month of May to that of September, outdoor work and activities are limited during the day time to protect people from the harsh sun. This is also an off-season for tourism in Dubai. Although not many people want to expose themselves to the blistering heat of Dubai summer, it is still a good time to visit this Emirate city. Here we have listed 10 reasons why people should visit Dubai during the summer months.

1. Cheap Air Tickets

We have to admit it: travelling is fun but expensive. The flight tickets can itself bankrupt you, especially when you are travelling to a popular place during peak season. So, if you want to really save your money, travel to Dubai this summer. As not many people visit the city during the months of summer, you are likely to get air tickets at cheaper rates.

2. Good Hotel Deals

Hotel rates during peak season are usually high, forcing you to settle for a regular hotel that fits your budget. However, travelling to Dubai during the summer months may give you a chance to enjoy something luxurious and extravagant at the same cost. Several hotels offer deals and promotions on their hotel rooms. It may be in the form of a discount up to a certain percent for stays or free boarding for young children or perhaps a complimentary lunch or dinner during your stay. There are chances that you may get to stay in a swanky five-star hotel.

3. Spend Time in the Malls

Spending time roaming around the malls may sound frivolous to you, especially when you are on a holiday. But staying outdoors for a long time during Dubai's summer is next to impossible. On the other hand, the malls are fully air-conditioned, making it rather comfortable for you. Moreover, the malls in Dubai are not just meant for shopping. They are complete entertainment package with indoor theme parks, in-house aquariums, movie theatres, a host of restaurants, etc. The Dubai Mall, which is also the largest mall in the entire world, has more than 1,200 stores from where you can shop. It also has an underwater zoo, an aquarium and an indoor theme park.

4. Enjoy the Water Parks

If you want to spend your day outdoors but want to remain safe from the heat, visiting one of the numerous water parks in Dubai is a good idea. Dubai has some of the best water parks that you have ever seen anywhere. Wild Wadi Water Park is the largest water park in Dubai with around 30-35 rides for both children and adults. Aquaventure and Wonderland are two other water parks where you would definitely have a great time. Even if you do not want to try out some of the daredevil rides, you can just swim in the cool waters of the pool to beat the heat. However, do not forget to apply loads of sunscreen.

5. Visit Burj Khalifa

The tallest building ever built by mankind, Burj Khalifa is located next to Dubai Mall. The building is elegant and a structure that you would be able to see even before your flight touches Dubai land. Your summer holiday can turn into a pleasant one with a trip to this tall building. Here you can visit the tallest viewing deck on the 124th floor to get an aerial view of this city. What's more is that it is so windy up there that you would not feel any heat even if you visit this place during afternoon time.

6. Brunch at Five-Star Hotels

One of the things that Dubai is well known for is the food that it offers. However, visiting a street shop for breakfast or lunch can be quite unpleasant. Nevertheless, this does mean that you would not be able to enjoy some delicious food in this Arabian land. The restaurants of most five-star hotels in Dubai offer a delicious brunch for its visitors. One of the most popular brunches is the one available in Sky View Bar of Burj Al Arab. So when you are really tired of the heat and roaming around the malls, reserve a table for you and your family and enjoy a seven-course, delicious brunch.

7. Enjoy the Dubai Fountain

The evenings in Dubai during the summers are quite pleasant, although you may feel the remnants of the heat even then. So, the best way to cool off is to watch the performance of Dubai fountain which is located just outside Dubai Mall. It is mesmerizing to watch the fountains dance on the rhythm of beautiful music. And if you stand really close, you are likely to be showered by some cool showers!

8. Spend Time on the Desert

The desert safari is entertaining and a great way to understand the way of life in Dubai before the development. Usually, the desert safaris begin during afternoon time and stretch till night. But as it is too hot during the day, you can try out the morning desert safari where you get to view the desert before the sun really shines on the sand. Several VIP desert safaris are organized by tour companies with which you can enjoy the desert in all luxuries that are available in a hotel. Going for an overnight desert safari would also make your summer holidays a memorable one as it is a luxury thing to do in Dubai.

9. Dinner on the Dhow Cruise

When the sun sets down and temperature comes down a little, head to Dubai Creek or Dubai Marina for a ride on the dhow cruise. The dhow cruises are actually restaurants that sail. You can enjoy scrumptious dinner and some awesome entertainment while you glide along the Creek or Marina. However, these are not the only best things about the dhow cruise. You get the opportunity to watch the skyline of Dubai with all its beautiful lights. Stand on the upper deck of the dhow to not only to take in sights of the city but also to feel the gentle breeze in the air.

10. Adventure at the Beaches

Dubai is gifted with some of the best beaches in the world. If you are lucky enough to be staying at a five-star hotel, you would get to enjoy a private beach too. While these beaches are a great place to relax, there are several adventure activities that you can try your hand at. From snorkelling to scuba diving to parasailing, you can have a great time on the beaches of Dubai. However, to be on the safer side, visit the beaches during the early morning hours or during the evenings to protect yourself from sunburn and other such problems. Also, do not forget to apply sunscreen and drink lots of water while you are on the beach.

So you see, summer is not a really bad time to visit the city of Dubai. Apart from the open areas, every building and structure in Dubai is temperature-controlled to make sure that you have a good and comfortable stay.
