Reasons to stay in the UAE this summer.
1It’s the perfect season for shopping! Take advantage of the summer deals and reduced prices at more than 6,000 stores. 2On
top of all the retail therapy, Dubai Summer Surprises offers entertainment and family activities all over the city in June and July. 3Your
journey time to work will be cut in half as people flee the heat, leaving you with a traffic-free commute – enjoy it while it lasts! 4You’ve
been talking about going skiing for months. Now while it’s so hot, it’s the prefect time to head down to Ski Dubai and enjoy the cold. 5After
a busy winter of entertaining visitors from cooler climes, you can have a guest-free summer as it’s too hot for them to visit. 6As
you’re indoors most of the time, you might as well join a gym and lose some weight during your spare time. 7Flights
are so expensive at this time of year, so stay here, save the cash and splash out on something you’ve always wanted. 8You
can still experience a holiday feeling by taking advantage of the discounted hotel rates in the UAE. Check out Friday’s ‘Stylish Staycations’ article on page 62 for ideas. 9Make
the most of the peace and quiet due to a quieter social scene during the summer and have some well-deserved me-time. 10You
don’t have to go back home and spend time with annoying relatives!
