Buro 24/7 Middle East's culture guide: July '18
Here's what to do this month...
summer is in full swing here in the Middle East and it's a month where many residents and tourists escape the scorching heat and travel out of the country for cooler climes. But, if you're here in Dubai, there's still plenty of things to do — indoors, of course. From cycling your way to a fitter lifestyle with unlimited sessions to getting pampered at a renowned spa hotel or gathering your friends and splurging on a suite to watch the final match of the World Cup, there's plenty to do.
Take a look at our list here...
Unlimited free rides at CycleBar

Open to anyone and everyone looking for a way to stay fit this summer, the free classes are available for an entire week from July 2-8, so you better get there before the doors open in order to secure yourself a spot.
