Well, I have travelled to various countries around the world so I have had a chance to experience different weather conditions. Last year, I had a visit to Dubai. It was a great holiday until the third day I stayed in that alluring city.
It was supposed to be a wonderful 5-day trip for me to explore the rich culture, fascinating people and beautiful landscapes of Dubai. After two days being overwhelmed by skyscrapers and historic monuments, I decided to spend a day on a beach. There are plenty of public beaches in Dubai to choose from and I did have a hard time picking the best one. I thought it would be interesting with stretches of golden sand and turquoise sea, but it wasn’t.
It was hot, not regular hot, but genuinely scorching hot, and I am really sweltering in the heat. After just a while being exposed to direct and intense sunlight, my skin was sunburnt. I had tried to slap on more sunscreen but it didn’t work. Since I couldn’t stand the heat any longer, I came back to the hotel and stayed inside all day with air conditioning. All I could do during the next days was basically mall-hopping. Sure, malls are not culturally-enriching, but they were still fun.
In overall, I think Dubai is an incredible city, but if you can’t endure a high temperature, you will not be able to enjoy the outdoors.
