When The Weather is Good in Dubai
I happened to visit Dubai in March. The first two nights were perfect. It was a little humid, but mostly beautiful. In my last day, the weather was insane! They say that amount of rain was unheard of. Possibly because Dubai was sad I was leaving? I kid! Anyway, if you are going there these coming weeks, make sure to use the nice weather to the fullest. Here are some ideas from what I did! :)
1- 3D Street Painting
These paintings are in The Walk, Jumeriah Beach. The big 3D paintings are placed on the pavement and some of the walls. Some paintings were very impressive. It was fun standing in the right spots and taking pictures. the Cube and the giraffe were AMAZING. They were completely flat on the floor, but they felt so 3D to me.
2- Beach + Burgers
The public beach at Jumeirah was actually really good. I didn’t swim because it was too windy, but just sitting there and collecting shells was very soothing and much needed. Being there really worked up my appetite and I had to try the very famous Salt burgers. I tried the chicken Cheetos and Darn they were AMAZING.
3- Heritage Village Dubai
I have been wanting to visit the heritage village for the longest time, but the weather has always been too hot. Thankfully this time, I got to go. I only had time to visit the Sheikh Saeed Al Maktoum House, but I really enjoyed it. The house dates to 1896. This is the traditional building structure of the traditional gulf house. It is the same style as the old houses from the East of Saudi where I am from. The house contains few gallery rooms with photographs and objects. I found it very interesting. I took about an hour there and I could have stayed longer.
4- Outdoor Cinema at Vox Cinema
Hope it’s not destroyed by the rain! The movie they were screening was a very pathetic choice. "London Has Fallen" was extremely violent and really silly. The "hero" didn’t even get one scratch until he killed about 300 people. Regardless of the movie, it was a great experience. The breeze was so refreshing, the stars and planes were sparkling in the sky and the chairs were very comfortable. I got a food bucket with my ticket too! I would go again.
