Looking for your next hot vacation after a wishy-washy (literally) summer? With 350 days of sunshine and temperatures that average around 80 degrees, Dubai is an excellent versatile spot to visit. With cheap tickets available all year round and perfect weather, it’s like you’re guaranteed to come home with a tan. But, with all of that heat, you’ll need to keep cool at these “cool” places.

Pearl Diving
Did you know that one of the oldest traditions in Dubai is pearl diving? For years, the world's best pearls were found around the Arabian Gulf.  You can embark on your own pearl diving day trip to learn about this precious tradition and have a chance to dive and seek pearls for yourself. You'll learn how to open an oyster and enjoy a traditional Arabic lunch. Having a chance to dive in cool water and doing something pretty cool sounds like a fun way to enjoy your time in Dubai.
Ski Dubai
When you're hanging out and vacationing in the middle of the desert, what would make you have the urge to go skiing? You can fulfill this strange desire at Ski Dubai; the largest indoor ski slope in the world. Who has to make two trips when you can enjoy summer and winter sports in one place? It is probably the best way to cool off since temperatures are substantially low enough for real snow.
Shop for winter clothes and try them out
Let’s say you want to take our suggestion and head for the slopes, but you didn’t pack winter clothing. Have no fear, for a trip to the Adventure HQ store will not only solve this problem, but is yet another place to keep cool. Obviously, this store is air conditioned so you can already take a relief from the hot temperatures. But, you can also take your experience to the next level by entering sub-arctic temperatures. The chill chamber is the perfect place to try out your new winter gear. It literally is a room with temperatures below zero!
Chillout ice lounge
Now that you've got some serious winter gear (Despite the desert like temperatures), you can also enjoy using them at the Chill Out Lounge. You are also provided thermal clothing as you enter this frozen sanctuary. Everything is made frm ice sculptures with funky lighting that makes you feel like you're in an igloo. It feels so cool you might actually miss that sweltering heat.
Take a dip at the beach
If you want to actually enjoy your time outdoors, what better way to cool off than to take a dip at the beach? Getting your power bronzing on doesn't mean you have to burn out. With your sunscreen and beach goodies good to go, head for the Habtoor Grand Beach Resort and Spa. There is a swim up pool bar with waterslides and a long, beautiful beach. This is a perfect spot for couples, families or solo travelers who want to lounge and relax, but also stay a little bit cool.
