Things You Should Know About Dubai Travel
Dubai is like nowhere else on the planet and is a fascinating place to visit. Often claimed to be the world’s fastest-growing city, over the past four decades it has metamorphosed from a small Gulf trading centre to become one of the world’s most glamorous, spectacular and futuristic urban destinations. Find out what this unique city has to offer.
December Is The Best Time To Go To Dubai
The best time to visit Dubai is in the cooler winter months from December through to February. The city enjoys a pleasant Mediterranean climate, with average daily temperatures in the mid-20s °C. Not surprisingly, room rates (and demand) are at their peak during these months. The increase in January and February can sometimes be rather overcast, and it can even be surprisingly wet at times. Temperatures rise significantly from March through to April.
Food Is Expensive
You can find cheap meals in Dubai for around 500 INR, while fast food will cost a bit less (around 400 INR). The best meals are usually shared by the table and consist of hummus, pita, falafel, foul, fattoush, tahini salad, and grilled halloumi cheese. Operation Falafel is a great cheap restaurant chain with 7 locations around Dubai. If you want a meal at a mid-range restaurant, expect to pay closer to 2000 INR. For an all-day brunch extravaganza, expect to pay at least 7000 INR per person.
There Aren’t Many locals Out There
This takes a while to sink in for most first time visitors: the fact that there don’t seem to be any local Emiratis around at all. That’s due to a few factors, most notably that only 11 per cent of Dubai’s population is Emirati. The local culture, too, is quite a private one, meaning for many visitors the only Emirati they’ll meet will be the one who stamps their passport at the airport. Those keen to learn more about local culture, however, should call into the Sheikh Mohammed Centre for Cultural Understanding.
The Weekend Begins On Friday
Why are the cafes and restaurants packed on a Friday morning, when everyone should be at work? This is the Islamic world, which means weekends are Fridays and Saturdays. Among the Dubai expat crowd, as well as many short-term visitors, the beginning of the weekend means one thing: brunch. And this is no light snack; Friday brunches are typically vast feasts as sumptuousness as they are boozy. Many hotels put on huge buffets of every food imaginable on which you can gorge yourself before lurching back to the hotel room for a snooze.
Camel Races Are A Thing
So much about one of Dubai’s favourite sports is completely bonkers. There are no actual jockeys on these camels, but rather small robots that sit on top of the animals and are controlled by someone nearby. How is there someone constantly nearby, you ask? A luxury, air-conditioned car follows the camels around while they’re racing. Thus allowing the passengers to control the robot. The camel-racing tracks are also so big that you’ll barely be able to see the participants most of the time from your grandstand perch. But still, this is a proper experience.
Almost Everything Is A Record Breaker
After a few days in Dubai, you’ll become so used to hearing that something is the biggest/fastest/most expensive/tallest/most beautiful in the world. All those facts will cease to even register as being interesting. Dubai has many, many claims to world records for all sorts of things, including the world’s tallest building and the world’s largest shopping mall.
The Desert Is Too Close
It takes such a small amount of time (minutes here) to go from the skyscrapers and tarmac of Dubai to proper, endless desert. As soon as the city ends, the sand dunes begin. There are plenty of companies offering varying experiences out there in the wilderness, from safaris to Bedouin-style dinners to sand-boarding trips to quad-biking. It certainly makes a change from the shopping malls and fancy restaurants.
