Our tips:

  • Avoid going there in July or Summer as it is really hot, and avoid going to there during the Holy Month of Ramadan (a lot of restaurants are closed during the day and you can be fined if you eat or drink publicly…).


  • If you want to really enjoy Dubai, be prepared to spend a lot of money! It is a really expensive city and a lot of activities cost a lot money!

We hope you will enjoy your trip to Dubai!
