When to Visit

The UAE shines brightest between October and April when the country relishes its cool winter with temperatures averaging around 24°C. This ideal climate welcomes beach outings, outdoor adventures, and the much-anticipated shopping festivals. However, travelling during the scorching summer months, from May to September, might appeal to those seeking exceptional deals, with most activities, including shopping and entertainment, available in air-conditioned indoors. Keep in mind, though, that Ramadan, observed for a month, changes the pace of life with shorter working hours and restrictions on food and drinks during daylight hours.
