How to Enjoy Your Summer Getaway in Dubai
It’s hard to decide whether to love or to hate winter. A person’s weather preference usually depends on what kind of person they are. Some people would say that those who love winter are the cautious kind: They are usually meek, introverted, and loves taking a slow day at home sipping tea while reading a book. Meanwhile, those who hate winters are usually considered the adventurous kind: They are generally extroverted, outgoing, and looks forward in taking a trip to the tropics with their travel buddies.
Aside from this, life during winter could also be very tedious, making everyday life a serious struggle. This is normally the case in most western countries, as well as countries in South America & Australia, especially during harsh wintry conditions. Getting out of the house requires tons of preparation such as dressing up in multiple layers of warm clothing, shovelling the snow off your driveway, waiting for your car to heat up, and keeping your skin hydrated and moisturised. This makes winter a dreaded season for most people.
This is also why many westerners love to travel overseas during winter. Taking a trip to a country where winters could become enjoyable summers has become a norm among plenty Westerners and people who live in countries where winters become really bad.
While tropical countries are presumably the most common travel destination for Westerners trying to escape the cold, some destinations are not-so-popular for a winter destination. Dubai, a city situated in in a country surrounded by humid desert lands, could be a surprisingly exciting winter escape destination. If you are looking for a different summer destination that’s different from the tropical wonders found in Monaco, Southeast Asia & Pacific Islands, the Caribbean, and Latin America, here’s a list of all the best reasons to escape winter and take a holiday in Dubai!
Consistent hot temperatures throughout the year
People who really hate winters would really love Dubai and might even consider migrating to the UAE. Since Dubai is located in a humid desert country, the city boasts of consistent hot temperatures all-year round. This means you will not have any problems going out and getting things done at any time of the year.
However, it’s notable to say that, as with any other location around the world, Dubai’s climate has its own downsides, too. Though, these drawbacks are very minimal as compared to snow that would last a for about two months or so. It only rains in Dubai for a few months, with most of the occurrences happening around February. It’s ideal to travel to Dubai during December-March, as this is the wet season and will have the most favourable temperatures.
Home to unique, elegant, and exquisite experiences
Just like Ibiza, St. Barths, The Maldives, and Monaco, Dubai has become a true playground for the rich and the famous. Throughout the years, a myriad of establishments that offer the best in the world has sprung-up around Dubai, which eventually made the city a popular tourist spot for people of different statures in life. This makes the city an ideal destination for anyone seeking to elevate their palate and experience the finer things in life.
A multitude of luxurious activities can be experienced in Dubai. Yachting – which is just as exclusive as owning a house in prime neighbourhoods – has become easily accessible for people who are still to attain a very high level of affluence. Renting yachts in Dubai has become very popular among locals and tourists alike. And since Dubai is studded with 5-star luxury hotels as well as a good assortment of fine-dining restaurants by Michelin-starred chefs, you’re sure to find an impeccable luxurious deal right for your budget.

What makes a city an ideal travel destination is the diversity in attractions it offers. This makes Dubai a very ideal destination for almost any kind of tourist. If you’re out to enjoy winter in a different country with a warmer weather, make sure to see what Dubai has to offer.
If you are into extreme sports, you might have heard that Dubai is home to a good selection of extreme activities designed for adrenaline junkies. Death-defying activities such as sky diving, bungee jumping, and shark diving, are all too common around Dubai. Sky diving in Dubai is one of the more popular among the mentioned activities, and for good reason. Skydivers are treated to a spectacular view of Dubai’s skyline and metropolis, and people’s photos while sky diving with the Palm Islands in the background is just spectacular and breath-taking!
If you are looking for something not as challenging, the city is also home to activities that everyone in the family can enjoy. Sand boxing, dune bashing, and microlighting are just a few activities in and around Dubai that could be enjoyed by just about anyone. Since Dubai is in ample supply of fine desert sands, make sure to go to the desert and try to ski down a sandy hill aboard a 4×4 SUV.
Provides a good assortment of water activities
Dubai isn’t just an urban jungle – is it also home to a multitude of water activities that will make you forget about harsh winters at home. Activities such as parasailing, jet skiing, and kite surfing will surely make you enjoy the sun and make your winter-escape worth-while.
And since you’re in Dubai, make sure to give the newest water activity a try. While flyboarding has been a popular water activity for a few years now, it’s still growing in popularity. Flyboarding sort of combines skateboarding and jet skiing to lift a person off the water’s surface by attaching a water motor in a person’s feet, together with a long water inlet tube. Flyboarding could be tricky to learn, but you should at least give it a try.
