Things to know before visiting Dubai
US citizens don’t require a visa for visits to Dubai, or anywhere in the UAE, provided their stay doesn’t exceed one month, so there is no need to worry when you catch a flight from New York to Dubai. If you intend staying longer you will need to obtain a visa from any UAE consulate or embassy. In common with all parts of the Middle East, Dubai is conservative in terms of social behavior. Don’t engage in displays of affection in public beyond holding hands. The same applies to clothing; beachwear is only for the beach or swimming pools. The currency of the UAE is the Emirati dirham. The most commonly used banknotes range from five to 200 dirhams, but 500 and 1000 dirham banknotes are also in use. Coins range from 25 fils (cents) to one dirham.
What is the weather in Dubai?
Dubai’s desert climate means you’ll see lots of sunshine no matter when you go. Temperatures range from an average of around 60 degrees Fahrenheit in the months of December and January to around 95 degrees in the months of July and August. It goes without saying that sunscreen with a high protection factor is an essential requirement when you go out during the day, especially at the beach. Enjoy Dubai and its wonderful weather to the the maximum with our acclaimed vacation packages to Dubai.
Dubai also gets very little rain. Most of the rain that does fall occurs in the cooler months from December to March, but even then it’s not really a significant amount. Dubai’s yearly average rainfall is less than four and a half inches, which is considerably less than many other countries receive in a single month. In short, Dubai’s climate ensures excellent warm and sunny weather, the type that tourists, and local businesses that cater to tourists on arrival, love.

What to do in Dubai?
Dubai’s tourist industry, like its infrastructure, is highly developed. There’s so much to do in Dubai that you can never be bored. The iconic Burj Khalifa skyscraper is at the top of most visitors ‘must-see’ list. At a height of over 2,700 feet tall, it’s the world’s tallest building and you can take the super fast elevator to the observation deck for stupendous 360 degree views of Dubai and the Persian Gulf.
Enjoy fun for all the family at Dubai Aquaventure Waterpark. It’s the largest waterpark in the Middle East and widely considered the best has a superb range of amusements, amenities and thrilling rides, ranging from exciting to downright scary. Another of Dubai’s famous attractions is the Palm Jumeirah, an artificial palm-shaped archipelago of islands filled with hotels and residences. Take an organized boat trip around the islands. There are some great sights to see including Dubai’s world famous seven-star hotel, the Burj al Arab on Jumeirah Beach. There are so many other attractions to discover, and you'll enjoy whichever ones you visit with our flight and hotel travel deals to Dubai.
What to visit around Dubai?
Thanks to the relatively small size of Dubai, it’s easy to explore beyond the city to rural areas and even to other emirates of the UAE. You can take a full day tour to Abu Dhabi, the UAE's capital and largest city. Enjoy the stunningly beautiful Grand Mosque and other great examples of Islamic architecture at its finest. If you're feeling adventurous, you can enjoy a trip to the Hajar Mountains, a beautiful mountain range in the east of the UAE. It's the tallest mountain range in the region and a delight to explore. Hiking through winding trails that pass picturesque villages and offer wonderful views of wadis and rugged cliff faces is well worth the effort. This area is also rich in wildlife, and bird watching is a favorite pursuit of many visitors. Book our travel package to Dubai and enjoy exploring its fantastic surroundings.
What to eat in Dubai?
Dubai’s restaurants offer just about every type of food you could wish for. Dishes from all over the world are available, whether you want a burger, a pizza or a spicy Indian curry. Dubai’s gastronomic claim to fame, however, stems from its vast range of Arabian dishes prepared to perfection by superbly skilled chefs. Much of Dubai’s traditional cuisine is meat based, in common with other desert nations, but its coastal location on the Persian Gulf has enabled it to develop an excellent range of seafood dishes, too.
Popular types of meat include mutton, lamb, beef and goat, and despite the UAE being a Muslim nation, it’s also possible in certain places for non Muslims to order pork dishes. You need to order it specially, though; don’t expect to see pork listed on any menu. Similar restrictions apply to buying alcoholic drinks. They’re not available everywhere but can be ordered in hotel bars and restaurants without problem, again, especially for non-Muslims. Book our flight and hotel in Dubai package and look forward to experiencing world-class food and refreshments with unbeatable service - every day.
