When To Go To Dubai
It’s best to book flights to Dubai during British winter months as during our summer time the temperatures will be unbearable. October to April are the best months to visit if you want the temperature to be comfortable. The coolest months are December – February where the nights actually get to as low as 14 degrees so you might need a light cardigan or long-sleeved shirt. Dubai celebrates Ramadan for a month from the start of May to the beginning of June, it’s not the best time to visit as attractions may have reduced opening hours. You can still visit but locals will likely be low on energy and your Dubai holiday will require a bit more planning. Dubai shopping festival happens in January and February so if you like a bargain then it’s a great time to visit!
Things You Need To Know About Dubai
There are some big cultural differences in Dubai so if you are visiting Dubai for a holiday there are a few things to keep in mind, for example: dress modestly in public areas (cover shoulders, not too much leg or cleavage on display) but around your hotel wear whatever you like. If you are a drinker then you need to go to bars, restaurants and clubs in hotel complex areas as no where else will sell alcohol – this is also where all the best restaurants are. Some hotels in Dubai will require a couple to be married if sharing the same room – if you are travelling with a partner but are not married speak to one of our experts who can tell you where will be best for you to stay. Not all hotels are this strict!

Three Things Not To Miss In Dubai
Just three things? This is possibly the hardest destination to only pick the top three as there is so much to do! These would be our top recommendations…
- Overnight desert safari – after all, Dubai used to just be a desert so it’s a good experience and it’s so different from the city! By day enjoy sand boarding on sand dunes, 4 x4 dune bashing (driving really fast on the sand dunes) and incredible sunsets. By night watch a fire show, belly dancers, eat a BBQ dinner around a camp fire and sleep under the stars.
- Aquaventure Waterpark – This insane water park has a 9-story high drop slide (not for the faint hearted – it almost looks vertical!) and the world’s longest waterslide. It’s also located in the much talked about Atlantis Hotel on Jumeirah Beach.
- Burj al-Arab – See The Palm and out of this world views from the top of Burj al-Arab – the worlds tallest building. We must admit, it’s a little daunting! There is also a big shopping centre next door.
