Today we are sharing 10 things to know before visiting Dubai - including when to visit Dubai, how to plan a trip to Dubai, Dubai vacation travel tips, how to visit Dubai on abudget and what to do in Dubai in 3 days.

Dubai is a wonderful place to explore in the UAE, full of luxury hotels, glorious shopping malls and endless desert.

1. Visit from October to April

Dubai has two seasons, hot and hotter. Visiting in the cooler months from October to April will offer you clear blue skies, pleasant heat and less humidity.

2. Plan and book in advance

Dubai is a popular destination so booking everything ahead of time is best. Plus, Emirates have some great cheap seats when you book 6 months ahead of travel and hotels offer great deals when booking in advance.

3. Stopover

Dubai is the perfect place to use as a stopover. There are lots of things to see and do for all types of travellers, we will get on to that later, but Dubai is a great place to stopover when travelling from Europe or America to Asia. Book flights on the Emirates website to save money on the extra flight and hotel room.

4. Dress modestly

When packing for your trip, make sure you pack layers and reconsider those short skirts or crop tops. Aim to cover up to your knees and shoulders when possible out of respect for the local culture.

5. Tipping

Another thing to consider before your trip to Dubai is tipping. Tipping isn’t expected but some restaurants will add it to the bill.

6. Use the taxis

Taxis in Dubai are great, affordable and easy to come by. We recommend using them whenever you can - you can even book taxis on the RTA Smart Taxi app. However, avoid just handing over the address of your destination, try to find out landmarks nearby as the drivers don’t always know every street in the city.

7. Being respectful

Something important to remember whilst visiting Dubai is to be respectful to the local culture. We have talked about dressing appropriately but also remember to avoid showing public displays of affection when around Dubai.

8. Food and drink

When planing your evenings, it is worth doing a bit of research before your visit. There are many fine dining options around the city as well as budget friendly ethnic eats too. Western styled bars are available with decent pints and there are many hotels and restaurants offering buffet styled meals too. However, alcohol is not readily available in supermarkets but can be purchased at licensed bars and restaurants which are often attached to hotels.

9. Weekends

Weekends in Dubai are Fridays and Saturdays, so consider this when planning your trip to the city. If you can, aim to visit Sunday to Thursday.

10. Things to do

Lastly, there are plenty of things to do in Dubai to keep you entertained. For those that love adventure, hire a driver to go dune bashing for a morning in the desert. Head to the top of the Burj Khalifa to experience spectacular views from the tallest building in the world. Shop till you drop in Dubai Mall, visit the souks or take a yellow boat tour around the coastline to learn a little more about the city whilst seeing the famous hotels.

Love theme parks? Head to one of the four major theme parks in Dubai, including the IMG Worlds of Adventure and Motiongate theme park.
