Useful information about the flight from Kuwait to Dubai

Dubai - A city where the impossible becomes ordinary

Dubai is definitely one of the most stunning cities in the world, so if you have the chance to visit it, do not hesitate. Long sandy beaches, some of the most fascinating architecture in the world, a wide choice of simply amazing attractions and a feeling you have ended up in a whole different world - Dubai is definitely something to remember.

When to visit Dubai

Dubai has a subtropical climate, so it is a year-round destination. The best time to visit is October to April, since the temperatures are lower during this part of the year; around 25°- 35° C. During the summer months, the temperatures can rise up to 45° C. If you would like to see Dubai during some of the biggest festivals and holidays, you should visit on December 2nd, when Dubai celebrates the National day. As for the Islamic holidays, dates vary, so you should check before travelling if you want to catch these. Eid is the most important Islamic festival and marks the end of Ramadan (ninth month of the Islamic calendar). 

Things to know before travelling to Dubai

If you are a British citizen, you can apply for a 30-day visa when you arrive. Make sure you don't overstay your welcome; there are fines for outstaying visas. Check that your routine vaccinations are up to date before travelling. 

If you travel to Dubai during Ramadan, be aware that eating, drinking and smoking are not permitted in public during the day. There are also some very strict regulations on drinking alcohol in the UAE at all times. 

In general, Dubai is cheaper than London: restaurant prices are even around 45% cheaper. European imported goods are more expensive, while electronics are mostly cheaper. Remember to haggle in the souks. Dubai is on GST (Gulf Standard Time), which is UTC/GMT +4, so Dubai is three hours ahead of London.

Local information on Dubai

When arriving at Dubai airport, you can take the red metro line from Terminals 1 and 3 every 10 minutes, or the green line, which stops at the Airport Free Zone near terminal 2. Both metros run Saturday till Thursday between 6 am and 11 pm, on Fridays from 1 pm till midnight. A 1-zone ticket costs around 4 AED, a 2-zone around 6 AED and a 3-zone is around 8.50 AED. The red ticket is a convenient and cheap choice for tourists, as it enables you to take up to 10 journeys and is valid for 90 days. Buses stop at all terminals from 6 am till 10 pm; you can take buses 4, 11, 15, 33 or 44. 

Public transport is cheap with prices around 4 AED for a single ticket on the metro or bus (rides are 50% cheaper with the red ticket). Taxi prices are higher than public transport but still cheaper than in the UK.
Budget accommodation in hostels is available from around 100 AED in dorms. Single hotel rooms cost around AED 800. If you plan to travel during the peak season (September till May), make sure to book your accommodation in advance.
