Best Time to Visit
Nov-Feb: The best time to visit United Arab Emirates as weather is comfortably hot and dry, with temperatures averaging at 24°C. That said, hot and dry days are the norm in UAE, so always pack plenty of sun cream! The temperature and humidity peaks around July and August so it is best to avoid these months.
You should note that United Arab Emirates is a Muslim country and observes Ramadan. So be warned that restaurants may either be closed for the month, or only operating after sunset. Food is usually served during the day in your hotel, either in your room or in a secluded area. Alcohol is also served in some emirates after sunset.
Shopaholics should visit Dubai in January for the month-long Dubai Shopping Festival. With reduced prices in every mall, concerts and entertainment, this festival attracts thousands of visitors every year.
Visit on the 2nd December for National Day. The day celebrating the unification of the seven emirates with fireworks, performances and entertainment.
