Useful information about the flight from Karachi to Dubai

Dubai - a city of contrasts

Dubai has something for all ages, from waterparks to fantastic beaches, golf courses to indoor ski slopes, family dining to lively cabaret evenings. Visitors can shop in designer malls or haggle in souks that have been trading for centuries, visit the Burj Khalifa, the tallest building in the world or take a sunset camel ride into the desert.

The best time to go to Dubai

Dubai's subtropical climate makes it a popular year-round destination, the summer months, however, can reach temperatures of up to 45° C. The months from October to April are slightly cooler with temperatures ranging from 25°- 35° C. Dubai is a Muslim country where Islamic holidays are celebrated. Eid is the most important festival, marking the end of Ramadan and falls in the ninth month of the Islamic calendar, with the actual date varying from year to year. National Day, on the 2nd December, is an important festival celebrated with fireworks, car rallies and dance shows.

Important things to know and do before you travel

British citizens need to apply in advance for a 30 day holiday visa. Overstaying visas is taken very seriously with fines imposed. No specific vaccinations are required, but routine vaccines and boosters should be up-to-date. The UAE has very strict laws on drinking alcohol which visitors need to be aware of and during Ramadan eating, drinking and smoking are not permitted in public during daylight hours. Most things in Dubai, including electronics, are cheaper than in London, with restaurants being around 45% cheaper. European imported goods, however, will be more expensive. Visitors can have fun haggling for souvenirs in the souks. Dubai is on Gulf Standard Time, or GST (UTC/GMT +4), making it three hours ahead of London.
