Cool Dubai City Activities to Enjoy the Arabian Summer

While the months of June to September are some of the most sultry and arid months to be in Dubai, the months precluding it are no less hot.
Fortunately, there are number of interesting Dubai City activities that visitors and tourists can indulge in during this part of the year. Of course, you would have to set out properly clothed and cocooned in suntan and remember not to stay in the heat for an extended period.

However, if you are with a good Dubai travel company, you need only hire aDubai car rental to ferry you all over Dubai or anywhere else in the UAE. 

Some of theDubai tour packagesoffered at One World includes trips to water parks like Wild Wadi,Aquaventure and Dreamland. These venues are perfect for a summer cooling down for the entire

family. Sections devoted to different age groups make them fantastic places to beat the heat.

The malls are always an option, no matter what part of the year you are coming sightseeing in Dubai. Some great sales happen during the summer at shopping malls like Mall of the Emirates or Dubai Mallor Ibn Battuta Mall.
Mall of the Emirates even has an indoor skiing slope where artificially created snow can be enjoyed all year long. To get ahead of the summer crowd, you can make bookings with One World.
Dubai Summer Surprises, the summer counterpart to the Dubai Shopping Festival held earlier in the year, is another summerArabian adventure to look for. The shopping festival is usually held in the June-August months and takes place in air-conditioned venues, allowing people a respite from the heat.
It is however, a fact that hot summers of Dubai brings the number of European, Canadian, American, and North Asian tourists down to a significant size. The outdoor fun and activity, which marks the life in Dubai limits itself during the summer time. This does not mean that Dubai would not be fun in summers; in fact, the size of indoor activity doubles its size in summer. I have compiled a list of best things to do in Dubai during summer.

The Wild Wadi water park at Jumeirah Beach is as famous as theSki Dubai Resort at Mall of the Emirates, and with good reason too.

One of the must-see tourist attractions in the Middle East, the famous water park definitely qualifies as an Arabian adventure. For tourists who are not looking for any specific Dubai tour packages, a day at theWild Wadi is the perfect outing.

The water park is something of an all-in-one tourist destination and even if you do not want to wet yourself in any of the rides, you can simply spread a blanket and have a picnic by the Lazy River. The entire park uses a cashless system of payment (via a wristband) making it very convenient to wander around and enjoy the various rides.
Aside from the gigantic slides that can be enjoyed in Wild Wadi, there are numerous shopping and dining areas as well. Families can relax in the eating and the cabana areas when they are taking a break from all the frolicking.
Wild Wadi combines giant rock formations and tropical vegetation to create a dramatic visual recreation of the mountain peaks and deep wadis of the UAE’s Hajar Mountains. With 30 fun filled rides, the water park provides non-stop waterborne excitement.
One World offers fantastic Dubai tour packages for a day or a few hours at the Wild Wadi water park. Combine it with your Dubai City tours or enjoy a water park trip by itself, there are many affordable options available for tourists.
Some notable rides young adults and older persons can enjoy at the Wild Wadi include an uphill roller coaster- the Master Blaster, where you are propelled upwards via powerful jets of water. The light and sound synchronized Flash Floods generated hourly in the Wadi Wash area are another highlight of the park and a different experience altogether.
I could probably go on, but you could get in touch with our Dubai travel company for more details on this fun place.

Leisure options like these are even better when enjoyed during the relatively mild months of February-March. Couples visiting for a honeymoon in Dubai can charter a private yacht or a sailboat for a couple of hours or even for a few nights and sail the blue waters of the Arabian Sea. 
The Dubai Marina Yacht Club even charters their yachts for conferences and corporate events. Completely equipped for such programs, organizations can arrange for a MICE in Dubai aboard one.
