I will be working in construction so I visited one of the company's sites and it was seriously hot - the lads on site were wet thru' so I'm sure it takes its toll on the body. That said the site offices were all air conditioned.
If you are thinking of going over in Dec / Jan, then you will have some chance to acclimitase but be prepared for June - Sept.
Well being a laydee myself I have no intention of swinging anything other than a credit card in the malls but I defo dont envy you lads out on site. I'm embarressed to say I struggle in Spain in September never mind Dubai and am worried how our little one will cope.
One of the experts on here said treat it like the cold and rain in Ireland, we spend months rushing from heating to heating, this will be running from air con to air con.
would love to hear how you get one and how you find the accom/commuting once you get there!
best of luck!
