Preparing your trip, mark the date

Be sure to consider the weather when choosing your travel date. Dubai enjoys a year round subtropical climate, but summer temperatures can go up to 45° C. If you prefer a more temperate weather the best months to travel are October to April when the thermometer goes between 25° C and 35° C. One of Dubai's fixed dates holidays is December 2nd, which marks the official formation of the country. Other holidays are dated according to the Islamic calendar, the most important of these being Eid marking the end of Ramadan, the ninth month. You can consult lists of holiday dates for each year online.

Before your trip, things to know before you travel.

For health reasons make sure your normal vaccines are all up to date. Visas for British citizens are obtained once you get to the country, but pick your return date carefully as there are fines for overstaying your permit.

...

On arrival, things to consider once you reach your destination.

One very important thing to keep in mind is the strict regulations that come with Islamic culture about alcohol consumption. Alcoholic beverages are forbidden so, it is probably better if you can abstain during your stay. Also eating, drinking and smoking are not permitted in public from dawn to sunset during the whole month of Ramadan. Be sure to consult the Islamic calendar for your travel dates. Dubai is three hours ahead of London, and jet lag should not be a big problem. Still, try to get plenty of rest on the days before you travel. Once at the airport transportation to the city centre is easy to find and not expensive at all. The red line metro stops at at Terminals 1 and 3 at 10 minute intervals. Or you can catch the green line metro at the Airport Free Zone near terminal 2. Both of these metro lines run Saturday to Thursday from 6:00 am to 11:00 pm, and Fridays from 1:00 pm until midnight. Prices range approximately from 4 AED (Arab Emirates Dirham) for one zone, 6 AED for two zones, to 8.50 AED for three. You can also purchase a red ticket, which can be used for a maximum of 10 journeys within 90 days. Transport during your stay is cheap on the metro or bus, with tickets for around 4 AED. Taxis are more expensive, but still cheaper than in the UK thanks to lower petrol prices. Hotels can be found for about 800 AED, but more budget friendly accommodation is available in hostels for approximately 100 AED. Make sure you book early if you're travelling in peak times, September-May. Your general stay will likely be cheaper than life in the UK as restaurant prices are about 45%  lower. Imported electronic goods are more expensive, but don't forget haggling is the norm.
