Dubai, the most populous emirate in the UAE, is among the world’s leading tourist destinations and attracts millions of travellers, year on year. The emirate is famous globally for its astounding architecture. Visitors to the emirate should be well versed with different aspects of travel that could impact their holiday here.

Dubai is located on the southeast coast of the Persian Gulf in the Middle East. International flights to the city are handled by Dubai International Airport, which is currently the world’s busiest airport. The airport is the main hub of the Dubai-based carrier, Emirates Airline, the most preferred choice for flying to the city. The airline is a premium full-service carrier and operates a global network that spans across most of the inhabited world.

Tourists to Dubai have famous attractions such as Jumeirah Mosque, Dubai Museum, Burj Al Arab, Palm Islands, Dubai Creek, Ski Dubai, and Wild Wadi to include in their sightseeing tour. Dubai has a sub-tropical weather with arid conditions and it is only either hot or hotter here. The best time to be in the city is the winter season (November-March) when the temperature is relatively lower and the city experiences cooler climate, conducive to outdoor activity. This is also the peak tourist season with more expensive flights and holidays and crowded places of interest are a commonplace. Dubai Shopping Festival in January is among the most preferred times to visit the city. It is best to avoid peak summer (May-July) as the weather can be extremely hot. The Holy Month of Ramadan is the period of abstinence for Muslims, and tourists are expected to refrain from public eating, drinking and general merrymaking. However, it is also the time when tour operators roll out huge discounts on flights and holiday packages to lure holidaymakers. During summer, the Emirate hosts Dubai Summer Surprises, a fantastic time to be in the city when heavy discounts abound the city malls and souks. Apart from sightseeing and shopping, the city is a hot favourite of many for its warm hospitality and local delicacies. You must try out the shawarma and falafel in the UAE. These two delicacies are available all over the country.

Dubai is an extremely safe place for tourists. However, it is wise to be careful and alert at all times. Dress conservatively when you are visiting public places in Dubai. UAE is an Islamic nation and respect for the local culture and tradition is expected. If you are visiting UAE in summer, carry a strong sun screen and drink lots of fluids to beat the heat.
