Summers in Dubai
During the year, most people pursue activities of leisure according to the weather conditions. Dubai is no different. Despite the soaring temperatures, it is a city that offers plenty of actives both indoor and outdoor
Must visit Resturant in Summers
1 – Rare
An elegant indoor fine dining and outdoor overlooking the polo fields and Dubai cityscape. Breezy social dining from the onyx chef bench to plush sofas on the al fresco terrace to seating by the show kitchen. Seclude away and celebrate in a private dining room, warm and cozy in deep timber, glass, and mirrors. On weekends, immerse yourself in the gourmet delights of the original Friday Vintage Brunch.
The signature cut dry-rubbed rib eye bone in short cut, the melting marble of Wagyu and the mouthwatering crackle of a perfect char meeting the rich natural butter of foie gras. Vegetarians find their culinary desires answered in dishes like salt crust roasted vegetables with melted Camembert dressed in chive-Sherry cream or Parmesan risotto with smoked heirloom cherry tomatoes.
2 – Pierchic
Make early reservations and go all out on a summer night. Make sure to ask for a table on the terrace and soak up the sound of the sea and the stunning view of the Burj Al Arab and Dubai skyline. And what to eat when you’re sat out at sea? Well, seafood of course – heavenly oysters, scallops and crab just for starters plus lobster, sashimi, and a few meat or veggie options if you’re not a fish person. But make sure to save room for one of the best apple pies in Dubai, completely yummy and served with honeycomb ice cream that we dream of.
3 – 101 The Palm
Sometimes it’s more about the journey than the destination – well at 101 it’s definitely about both. Located at the One & Only The Palm Jumeirah, start your evening with drinks at the gorgeous Jetty Bar at its sister property across the water before being whisked across to your table by boat transfer while the lights of Dubai Marina sparkle in the background– and pretend for a while that this is how you always travel just make sure to pre-book if this is your preferred mode of transport – otherwise a long drive on the palm awaits. The menu here is Spanish influenced –the tapas is super tasty and a signature sharing Paella dish perfect for date night.

Camping in Summers on UAE
Think you know the UAE? Think again. The country is 80 percent desert, yet has some stunning mountainous areas in the north-east, not to mention acres of beachfront. This means there’s no shortage of places to explore, and the weather is now perfect for camping
1 – Beach camping in Umm Al Quwain
The beaches are a perfect gateway even for a daytime trip or a night-time barbecue. For more fun, you could also visit the old fishing villages along the peninsula at Al Raas where you may spot flamingos and other wild birds. Some adventure seekers even go as far as exploring the mangroves along the coast on a kayak. If a beach is what you want, there are plenty in the eastern coast of Fujairah as well. A popular destination is the quaint little town of Dibbah on the east coast entry point to the Mussandam Peninsula.
2- Bedouin Oasis Camp
Just a little over an hour’s drive from Dubai Marina, this Bedouin-style camp in the Ras Al Khaimah desert sits relatively near Banyan Tree Al Wadi, but far enough away to be completely secluded. With real goat-hair tents, cushions for seating, a barbecue, an authentic underground oven and, of course, a campfire (perfect for cooler nights like the ones we’re experiencing at the moment), this spot is the perfect getaway, and streaks ahead of the usual desert experiences offered by some other tour operators.
Though our visit to the camp was as a twosome, and we made the most of the campfire under a blanket of stars, the camp – which has its own little bar – is equally suited to larger groups who plan to stay up late, chatting and smoking shisha. There’s a barbecue in the evenings, accompanied by a spread of mezze and fresh saj bread, and a light buffet breakfast in the mornings. For overnight stays, tents, toothbrushes, toothpaste and towels are provided (and yes, there are flushing toilets here). Depending on the package you opt for, there are a number of activities that can be organized by the camp’s management, including camel trekking, which we can highly recommend – though be sure to wear long shorts or full trousers to avoid discomfort.
3 – Hajar Mountains
Start off at Al Hala, a village in the foothills of the Hajar ountainswhere there’s Wadi Taybah, not far from the village of Al Taybah. Drive through to Masafi, UAE’s version of Évian-les-Bains, famous for its spring water. There’s also a Friday market that actually opens every day. You could camp anywhere en route to the mountains. The picturesque Wadi Wurayah is about an hour’s drive from Masafi, not far from the foothills of the Hajar mountains. Roughly 20km off the Khor Fakkan beach, the rocky terrain of the region will take you down winding ravines, leading you to serene waterfalls.
Night Life in Dubai
Dubai’s claim to fame is its vibrant nightlife; Dubai has much to offer of late night entertainment and the emirate regularly hosts some of the most popular club nights and world-renowned DJs and artists from around the globe including David Guetta, Martin Garrix, Katy Perry, Nicky Minaj, Chris Brown and more.
1- Vii Dubai
The journey to discovering this hidden gem starts through a spectacular lounge, and an artfully crafted tunnel walk which eventually unveils what can only be described as a plush garden filled with all things green and radiant. Exclusively this summer it transformed into a luscious greenhouse, and just before reaching the peak of the heat, it has covered itself with a transparent acrylic roof so guests can continue to soak in the moon’s rays and enjoy the view of the city’s skyline inside a sheltered greenhouse cooled at the perfect temperature.
2- Barasti Beach
Renowned for its vibrant bar atmosphere and its delicious cuisine, Barasti Beach Bar is popular with both residents and holiday-goers. Situated on the coast, its platform offers a spectacular view on both sides, with a stark contrast between the sparkling blue Arabian Sea and Dubai’s towering skyscrapers. With two different floors, Barasti has an atmosphere which suits everyone’s needs and draws in large numbers reflecting all strands of Dubai’s population. Whilst the ground floor offers a more chilled, relaxed vibe with a live band playing old classics, the more energetic partygoers head downstairs where resident DJs get the dance floor pumping. This award-winning bar has, without a doubt, become an icon of the Dubai social scene.

Jumeirah Mosque is considered by many to be the most beautiful of Dubai’s mosques. An exact copy of Cairo’s Al-Azhar Mosque that is eight times its size, the Jumeirah Mosque is a fine example of Islamic architecture. This stone structure is built in the medieval Fatimid tradition, with two minarets that display the subtle details in the stonework. It is particularly attractive in the evening when lit with floodlights. The Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Centre for Cultural Understanding organizes guided tours of the mosque designed to try to foster a better understanding of the Muslim faith. Tours begin at 10 am daily, except Fridays.
3- Alserkal Art District
Part of the old Al Quoz industrial district centered on Alserkal Avenue is going through a regeneration to become Dubai’s main arts hub and is already home to some of the city’s most important contemporary art galleries. Established gallery names such as the Green Art Gallery, The Third Line, and the Ayyam Gallery have made their home here, while a host of smaller gallery start-ups has also moved in. The district’s program of rotating collections focuses both on the work of major artists as well as highlighting new Middle Eastern talent. This emerging district is also the place to come for fashion and accessory boutiques by local designers, pop-up restaurants, and café life, and it showcases the energetic and youthful buzz of a city, which is usually more noted for its corporate face.
