Development of the city in recent years has led to a boom in holidays to Dubai, with people around the world choosing to visit the architectural wonders, bustling beaches and world-class hotels. Shopping in this location is also an event in itself, with glittering shopping malls and traditional souks offering a fascinating contrast of experiences. There are many cultural attractions to be discovered too, along with the impressive Palm Islands.

Holidays to Dubai

What to see

Dubai boasts a vast array of attractions to cater for every taste. Visitors can enjoy a wealth of activities, with spectacular water parks, world class golf courses, desert safaris across the dunes and even skiing in SkiDubai, the world's biggest indoor skiing arena.

Dubai also features fantastic shopping and entertainment venues, with the Dubai Mall boasting more than 1200 outlets. If you are after something more traditional, then the souks offer a great opportunity to sample local goods and also have a go at haggling.

Dubai is not without cultural attractions, with stunning architecture and impressive museums including the Dubai Museum, which itself is one of the oldest buildings in Dubai. The 828 metre Burj Khalifa is a sight to behold, while the famous Palm Islands are a must see during your Dubai holiday.

When to go

Situated in the Arabian Desert, Dubai combines very little rainfall with both heat and sunshine.

The summer months of May to September offer stunning weather with highs of around 40C together with minimal humidity due to the almost non-existent rainfall. This time is ideal for those wanting to soak up the sun while on holiday in Dubai.

December through to February is the coolest period in Dubai, although temperatures still average around 23C, offering fantastic conditions for sightseeing or golf. February and March are the wettest months in Dubai.

Ramadan 2016 is expected to begin on June 6th and will finish on or around July 5th.
Ramadan is an Islamic month of abstinence, and therefore it is illegal throughout the UAE for adults to eat, drink or smoke in public during daylight hours. Many hotels, however, have areas where non-fasters can eat so food services will remain available in these places; please note that in some hotels certain restaurants and bars will remain closed during Ramadan. Adults are also expected to dress more modestly during this time, and tight or revealing clothing should be avoided in public.
