What better place to escape the scorching heat than on the slopes of Ski Dubai. You can have skiing lessons, practice snow-boarding tricks or take the kids on a toboggan ride in the children’s snow park.
The cities’ ice rinks are ideal for cooling off while taking in a bit of local colour. Europeans head to the rinks when they get homesick in winter.
