Fretting about summer? Well guess what – it’s already here, and it’s not quite so bad, is it? Yes, the weather might be warmer than is ideal, but there are a great many things that make it a brilliant time of year to be in Dubai. Excellent discounts and inventive offers are just a couple of the reasons to hang about this season instead of jetting off somewhere cooler – because it’s not just the tourists on their way here who can benefit from great deals. Whether your favourite pastimes involve swimming with unusual animals, bouncing several feet into the air or even playing in the snow, there’s either something brand new or brilliantly discounted for everyone in this town – not to mention a few freebies, too.
