I’m currently staying near the Dubai Marina Mall that has a promenade opening to the Dubai Marina. I spent the morning walking around the precinct and then up to the beach. I was wandering where all the people were, as shown by the photos it was quite deserted. But at 11am and temperatures already reaching 39 degrees, it was obvious that only “dumb” tourists (myself + others that I came across) were the only ones that would be walking around outside. So hot and sticky was the weather that my bottle of cold water took about 20 minutes to heat up. The marina area definitely reminded me of Brisbane (with extra heat).
Enjoy the photos.
More to come
