Pool parties are popular among young age group. During the summer hotels arrange such parties on their pool sides. Holiday homes and private homes can also serve as venue for pool parties. You can enjoy various fun activities like water polo, aquatic volleyball, good music along delicious food and beverages under beautiful decorated canopies. Perhaps you may have more fun as compared to spending time at public beach. Because in summer season temperature rises and won’t allow you to stay longer on beaches.
If you are an adventure lover and willing to enjoy adventures of Arabian Desert, desert camping will be the best way to enjoy desert adventures. Especially for summer season it is much better to enjoy camping in nights under the full moon as compared to desert safari during the day. You may enjoy barbecue, live music and dancing in desert camping. You will definitely love Arabian Desert as it appears magical under moon light and soft wind.
Dubai is an ultimate destination for holiday makers, shoppers and adventure lovers. I suggest you to research online to find about airlines offering flights on suitable rates. Take some time to search about suitable accommodation options. If you are traveling with your family or group of friends, it’s good to stay in villa, holiday home, resorts as they will provide more privacy like living in your home as compared to hotel.
