If you ever find yourself on a Dubai layover for 4 to 12 hours there are plenty of things to do in Dubai during your stopover.
While Dubai is best known for its shopping and its nightlife, there are many outdoor activities which can be enjoyed in the evening or night, as Dubai is the city that never sleeps.
However, during the summer months that is May to August, it can be extremely hot as the weather is concerned. Which means it is not as busy and you may find outdoor activities in Dubai to be a little unbearable during this time period.
Consider adding a romantic dinner cruise to your must do Dubai activities. See Dubai all in lights from the comfort of a glass enclosed cruise ship - Bateaux Dubai.
