We've visited some hot countries before but Dubai wins hands down. It's just IMPOSSIBLE to function outdoors when the temperatures exceed 40 degrees. We found out the hard way today as we took a taxi from the hotel to the Umm Suqeim Beach in Jumeriah. This is the beach which is overlooked by the world famous 7 star Burj Al Aarb Hotel. Walking on the sands was quite unbearable in, even the water was far from cold, it was roasting.
Our next destination was the nearby Souk Madinat Jumeriah mall, less then a 1km walk, but it took us around 30 minutes to walk, having to take breaks in the bus stops along the route. It was just too hot, but thankfully the bus stops are air conditioned!
