Living in Dubai…
I sometimes hear people say there’s not much to do in Dubai. “It’s just beaches, skyscrapers and fancy shopping malls,” people say. “How many malls do you need?”
It’s a fair question. Malls here have been multiplying like mosquitos in recent years. Everywhere I go, I’m amazed to see brand new “retail destinations” complete with cafés, fountains, parking spaces and people actually using them. New developments such as Citywalk, Al Wasl Square and the new Beach development at Jumeirah Beach Residences seem to pop up almost overnight, each of them spawning even more shiny shops.
There’s so much more to do in Dubai than shop!
Dubai’s glorious winter, sometimes, in summer, weekend choices can be endless:
- Trip to Miracle Garden
- Walks in the numinous parks
- Relaxing by the pool
- Going to the beach
- Playing sports
- Boat trips/parties
- Walks around the marina/madinat/beach/
- And of course the usual eating, drinks and brunch options are endless!
Here are my snapshots, Living in Dubai, one weekend when we had friends out to visit
Here are my top reasons for living in Dubai
Dubai’s Life Style
If you compare minimum living standard or life style of this place, you will find it is always improving all the time. And the rate of improvement is quite higher than other fast progressing economies of the world. Life style options are diverse.
Weather of the City
City has a good weather around 8 to 9 months of the year that allows everyone to enjoy almost all outdoor activities and beaches available here. It has beautiful sunshine everyday of the year. The weather is usually warm and pleasant all over the city. Only the summer months give tough time to residents and visitors. Temperature goes high in 40’s during June and September that makes this place less inviting during summer time period. But you can find various festivals and shopping galas during this season. The major cause of arranging such activities during summer season is to attract more visitors and travelers even in off season.
