Beat the Heat: 5 Tips to Keep Cool in Dubai!

The United Arab Emirates is known for its hot climate and temperatures that can rise to 48ºC (118ºF). In particular, the city of Dubai is renowned for its scorching temperatures and relentless heat that can make it difficult to survive, especially during the warmer months. Here are a few tips to help you stay cool in Dubai:

1. Wear Light Clothing

It’s best to wear lightweight, loose-fitting and light colors when in Dubai. However, it’s important to dress modestly in accordance with local culture and customs.

2. Use Sun Protection

It is essential to protect your skin from the intense UAE sun, for which you should bring:

  • High-quality, broad-spectrum sunscreen (SPF 30 or higher)
  • A broad-rimmed hat
  • Sunglasses

3. Increase Air Flow

On hotter days, try to keep windows closed while the air conditioning is running, since this will allow the temperature and humidity in the building to drop faster. Also, avoid opening any unnecessary doors or windows when the A/C is on as this could negatively impact the efficacy of your cooling system.

4. Hydrate Regularly

Drinking plenty of fluids is essential at all times in a hot climate. Aim to drink at least 8 glasses of water per day, while avoiding caffeinated and alcoholic beverages.

5. Avoid Direct Sunlight

Where possible, try to stay in cooler, shadier areas and avoid direct sunlight. Thanks to the UAE’s modern infrastructure and an abundance of shopping malls, there are many opportunities to stay indoors during the hotter months.

By following these simple tips, you can stay cool in the cities of the United Arab Emirates. Enjoy your stay!
