As June inches ever closer, Dubai reveals its quieter side following a noticeable drop in international tourism. Reduced business activities during the season create a more relaxed environment for all workers, allowing people to carve out additional time for enjoyment and fun. Wherever you go in the city during the summer months, you can expect to notice uncrowded venues, more vacant seats on the metro, and less traffic, creating an ideal backdrop for exploration and relaxation.
