What's the deal with Sheesha? Is it intoxicating or not? I hear conflicting arguments. (I'm a non-smoker!)

Smussuw, i need to ask you a question, my wife wants to visit Dubai in July/Aug (yes, she's mad!) due to her brother's wedding and is insisting I come along...the latest in the year I have ever been to dubai is May, can you tell me exactly how hot it gets, what you guys do in the intense heat, (besides DSS!!!) what the humidity is like...and what precautions should be taken, considering our 2 kids will be with us too...(aged 2 and 5).

Well, we mostly stay indoors

humidity reaches 180% and the temprature to 49 C. That means basically that in two minutes walking under the sun u'd be full of sweat and ur smell will be amazing, comparable to shit I'd say

It becomes a little bit better at the evening but it is still really bad. I said this before and am going to say it now, my mother always picks on westerns saying that they are devils because they are the only ones walking at noon around safa park infront our house. I really dont know how are they able to do that

Am not white so I really dont think that I need a sun block (although my skin has been burnt twice I think). I am sure that u would need those stuff

You should ask other forumers too.

Hmm..btw I'm not white either but still i know how bad it can be regardless of skin colour. "Darker-skinned ppl dont get sun burnt" is the biggest myth going!

But I think its the humidity that's worrying..i've been in hot places (e.g. LA) and its just dry heat...rather than humidity.

Anyway, If i gotta go, i gotta go! I guess i'll just camp outside Ski Dubai in the Mall, or perhaps stay in the car all day with the AC blaring!

Btw, i thought humidity, or relative humidity cannot be in excess of 100%? lol Anyway, cheers!

It's not that bad really since you will spend most your time indoors. There's a lot you can do to beat the heat.. spend your day shopping in places like city center or bur juman... go to ski dubai... go swimming.... I really love Dubai in the summer
