Dubai Overview

Best Time for Dubai Holidays

Dubai has a dry, desert climate while offering plenty of beaches and watersports activities throughout the year. The cool season runs from December to February when temperatures plummet to an average of 23-degrees Celsius or 73-degrees Fahrenheit. April to October can be hot months, and June and July include the Islamic month of Ramadan, a time of public abstinence when adults refrain from drinking, eating and smoking in public places during daylight hours. During the hottest months, temperatures soar past 39-degrees Celsius or 100-degrees Fahrenheit, but the heat is dry and more comfortable than similar temperatures in climates that are more humid.

Modern Marvels of an Oil-rich Cosmopolitan Arab Resort

Home of the world's tallest building, the Burj Khalifa, and the world's most luxurious hotel, the Burj Al Arab Hotel, Dubai offers lavish perks, desert retreats, beach holidays and historic charm that dates back to 3000 BCE. Some of the staggering attractions that Dubai holidays offer include:

Dubai Cuisine Includes World-class Restaurants

Emirati cuisine includes influences from many cultures of Asia and the Middle East. Global tourism ensures that you can find any food from burgers to camel meat. Traditional dishes include stews with exotic spices, mixed grill, falafel, lamb dishes, curries, tabbouleh, hummus and Arabic breads baked in clay ovens. Top restaurants feature European, American, Persian, Indian and Asian cuisines and fusion foods from all over the world. If you are truly fortunate, you might enjoy a Bedouin wedding feast where stuffed camel is served as part of your entrée.

Religion, Dress and Family Adventure

Dubai holidays in major resorts don't require any special kind of dress, but visitors can respect the local customs when moving around the city or visiting native families and desert attractions by dressing conservatively, wrapping towels or sarongs around the waist after swimming and keeping knees, shoulders and legs covered when visiting holy shrines and public places. Loose-fitting clothing helps visitors stay cool and comfortable. Holidays to Dubai include hundreds of family activities and bespoke touring options such as dune driving, desert caravans, wad bashing, Arabian horse riding, biking and walking tours of the old city.

Holidays to Dubai have something for every member of the family including engineered islands, desert escapades and the culture and history of the East with all the travel comforts of the West. Regardless of whether you arrive at the Burj Al Arab Hotel by a chauffeur-driven Rolls Royce or a desert feast by camel, Dubai holidays offer seaside and desert views, luxury, old-world adventure and modern conveniences unlike any other destination in the world.
