Aah, September. People pop their heads up outside the air-conditioned boxes to socialise, drink and eat. You can walk outside without melting into a messy puddle of sweat.
The hope of winter hangs in the air and the parties and outdoor shisha spots slowly open their doors.
Here are 10 exciting activities in UAE during August-September 2016:
1. Aqua yoga session @Al Barari
Conducted in the beautiful outdoor pool of one of its show villas, aqua yoga takes the principles and movements of yoga and adapts them to the water environment.
