Enjoy a Holiday in Dubai 

Head to Dubai for your next holiday to enjoy the beautiful weather and great shopping opportunities. Be ready to haggle for prices at the marketplaces and plan to stay for some of the local cultural festivals.

Best travel times for going to Dubai 

Thanks in part to its subtropical climate, Dubai, UAE, is a great place to go on holiday at any time of the year. Perhaps the best time to visit could be between October and April. At this time of the year, temperatures are lower, usually falling somewhere between 25° and 35° C. In the summer, temperatures can climb as high as 45° C. If you are interested in taking in some of the cultural events, plan to visit Dubai around the 2nd of December for National day. While some Islamic holidays can vary their dates, Eid - the most important Islamic festival - always falls during the ninth month of the Islamic calendar. This is an event marking the end of Ramadan.

Before you go there are some things you should know 

If you are a British citizen, look into applying for a 30-day visa when arriving in the UAE. Avoid fees by not overstaying your visa. Before leaving home check your immunization records to be sure that all your vaccinations are up to date. If you travel to the UAE during Ramadan, you should be aware that there are certain rules. Eating, drinking and even smoking are not allowed in public in the daytime during the month of Ramadan. The UAE also has quite strict rules about drinking alcohol.

Although Dubai tends to be a cheaper city to visit than London, some things are more expensive such as European imported goods. Electronics are certainly cheaper. And the prices in restaurant tend to be about 45 percent lower. Don't forget to try out your haggling skills at the souks (markets). Dubai is on Gulf Standard Time (UTC/GMT +4), which is three hours ahead of London.

Local area information

In Dubai you can look forward to cheap public transport. Travel through one zone for about 4 AED or two zones for 6 AED. If you are looking to go three zones, it will cost you about 8.50 AED. Buying a red ticket will save you about 50 percent on ticket prices. It allows you to take up to 10 trips in a total period of 90 days. At the airport passengers can take the red line metro at terminals one and three. This stops about every 10 minutes. The green line will stop near the airport's terminal 2, at the Airport Free Zone. Both metros run Saturday-Thursday, 6 am-11 pm and on Fridays, 1 pm-midnight. Taxi prices are more costly but still not as expensive as in the UK, because petrol is so much cheaper in the UAE. If you'd prefer to take the bus, watch out for the bus numbers 4,11,15,33 and 44 at all terminals from 6 am-10 pm daily.

Book budget accommodation in a hostel for about 100 AED (bunks in shared rooms) or book a single room in a hotel for around AED 800. Always plan to book early if travelling between September and May, the peak season.
