Friends invited me to their place for a week in Dubai. Since I have a vacation in the summer, there was not much choice. I must say right away that the summer months in the UAE are not a very good choice for a beach holiday: the daytime temperature exceeds 45 degrees and it is still a test in the open air. True, you can swim late in the evening or at night, but the closeness is terrible even at this time.
To keep yourself busy, you can walk around the malls (there are many different ones, but the prices go through the roof), try the buggy tour dubai, visit the aquarium and the fascinating exposition of the animal world (Dubai Mall), ride the coolest subway or go to the Aquaventure water park for a day.
