Last weekend, an intense sandstorm hit Dubai and it was dusty everywhere with zero visibility last Saturday. Dubaians were expecting warm weather afterwards which indicates early summer, but instead the weather is very windy and at 21°C. So if you’re in Dubai with this weather, trust that this will be the last full blast of winter, well maybe spring for some places which has 4 seasons. This time of the year is the most pleasant of all so I recommend grab you cameras, selfie rod and get ready for the following activities:
1. Biking along Downtown Dubai– get the best view of Burj Khalifa up close while exploring the streets of Downtown Dubai, perfect for this kind of weather. You can find more information on the page of Bykystations, they have info about rental locations, rates, how many bikes are available per station and smartphone apps. Bring your girls along, it could be fun. Don’t forget to wear sunscreen. 😉
2. Visit the Dubai Miracle Garden– it has more than 45 million blooming flowers in colorful designs, shapes and structure. This garden also holds a Guinness record for having the longest wall of flowers. So what are you guys waiting for? Head to Dubai Miracle Garden and make sure to take lots of photos. I haven’t been there yet myself, but I plan to visit one of these days. The garden is open from 9 AM-9 PM on weekdays and from 9 AM-11 PM on weekends, the entrance costs 30 AED.
3. The Beach– if you are looking for sand, sea, shopping, entertainment and dining all at one place, then pack your beach bag and head to The Beach at Jumeirah Beach Residences. They said you can have it all in here, they do have a running track, fitness facilities, cinemas, water park and play area for kids. I have visited The Beach several times already, it’s actually one of my favorite places to go in Dubai since last year. Like SM, The Beach has got it all for you. There’s never a dull moment indeed! Hurry up, before the sun gets too hot. You know, summer in Dubai? 😬 Follow their Instagram account for cool photos.
4. Skydive Dubai– again, What perfect way to get our adrenaline pumping while the weather is pleasant? Skydive it is! They only have slots until May 30th, book your tandem dive now in this link. If you’re the adventurous type and would like to shoot down at 210 km/h, this should be in your list when you visit Dubai during cool months. A stunning aerial view of the city of Dubai will surely amaze you. Not an adrenaline junkie? Well, they do have a cafe in site, just sit, relax, feel the sea breeze while watching skydivers land and sip your favorite coffee. This is in my bucket list by the way. 🙂 C’mon let’s skydive. If you have done this, share your experiences below, I’d love to hear from you.
