Hi all, newbie here, so apologies if this has been flogged to death (I did some searches and could not find a thread on this). Is there any place within reasonable driving distance from Dubai where it is possible to cool off a bit? We went to Hatta yesterday based on the guidebook's promise of a "cool, humidity-free" climate and, well, let's just say it may have been humidity-free. Any good mountains around here? Thanks!

Well, this time of the year it's just hot in the entire area. However, you can try Jebel Jais which happens to be the highest mountain in UAE. There's not too much to do, so you'll only escape the heat for a couple of hours but it's definitely worth a try.

Hi,
Ski Dubai is the only place that I have visited in a UAE summer that is truly cold.
You get that numb feeling and glow on your face when you come out from there!
Cheers
Steve

Thanks, all... I guess the answer is "curl up in your fridge" (or in local attractions that are basically huge fridges).
