Where To Go Cool Down This Summer

Summer means rising temperatures and strong sun rays and basking in the glory of it all. But in the UAE, it also means seeking refuge from the extreme weather by either spending your day indoors with the luxury of an AC or splashing around and playing in the water to stay cool. So we've rounded up for you places where you can do exactly that! From splash pads to indoor sub zero snow parks, you'll find great options to keep you perfectly cool, calm and collected!
