When is the best time of year to visit Dubai?
In terms of weather, the “best” time to visit is between November and March when the average temperature is 25 degrees. However, Dubai can be enjoyed all year round as temperatures rarely drop below 24 degrees. Even at the height of summer (July and August) when temperatures can reach 40 degrees, everywhere has air conditioning, and all swimming pool areas have shaded areas so it is still a viable destination.
Is Dubai a country or a city?
Dubai is actually one of the Emirates that makes up the United Arab Emirates. The capital of the United Arab Emirates is Abu Dhabi. On The Palm Dubai can organise day trips and tours to explore the other Emirates such as Abi Dhabi and Al Ain
Do I need to modify my dress in Dubai?
The religion of the United Arab Emirates is Islam and most Emiratis are practicing Muslims. When out of your hotel/resort, women are expected to dress appropriately. This means covering your shoulders and ensuring that skirts and shorts cover your knees. Within your hotel/resort, normal beach wear around the pools is absolutely fine. Most hotels on The Palm will require men to wear collared polo shirts or shirts in their formal restaurants. If in any doubt, check with concierge at your hotel and they will be more than happy to help you. Should you wish to visit the famous Jumeriah Mosque, head coverings are provided.
