Cure your winter blues in the dazzling Dubai, claiming the outdoors, including the warm waters of the beaches. An array of concerts and events as well as festivals luring people to spend time under the clear, blue sky are organised in Dubai during the time when the UK is suffering the winter blues. One can sign up for a desert adventure in the vast expanses of the Arabian Peninsula, shop at Dubai’s mega-malls, attempt daredevil stunts from some of the world’s tallest buildings or attend one of the local sporting events in the country.
