Dubai travel tips

Best time to visit Dubai

Dubai does not experience multiple seasons. It is either hot or hotter all year round! From November – April, average temperatures range from 24 – 35 degrees Celsius, with warm evenings and slightly cooler nights. This is peak tourist season for Dubai, hence, you must reserve your accommodation in advance. Dubai also receives light rainfall between January – March. During the rest of the year, from May – October, the temperatures soar to 40 degrees Celsius or even higher, and outdoor activities become difficult in the scorching heat. Hotel prices are slightly lower during this time of the year. If you visit Dubai during these months, protect yourself from the heat, wear sunscreen, drink plenty of water, and try not to spend too much time outdoors.

Getting around Dubai

Dubai has a fairly extensive metro and bus network to travel within the city. The Dubai Metro runs mostly above ground and standard adult ticket prices range from 4.00 AED – 8.50 AED depending on the number of zones travelled. Tickets can be purchased in the form of a Red Nol card which costs 2.00 AED. The card can be loaded with the cost of 10 individual trips. The Dubai Tram runs from Al Sufouh to Jumeirah Beach Residences in 42 minutes, and connects directly to the Palm Monorail. The Palm Monorail runs from the trunk of the Palm to the iconic Atlantis, The Palm. There are nearly 1500 buses circulating in Dubai and fares are usually combined with the metro ticket prices. Dubai Ferry, with fares starting at 25.00 AED operates between Business Bay and Dubai Marina via the Dubai Canal. With a large number of cycle paths coming up in the city, cycling around Dubai is becoming increasingly popular. You can easily rent a bike at any BYKY station and the first 30 minutes are charged at 15.00 AED. Most taxis in Dubai are government-operated and charge a metered fee based on distance travelled. Big Bus Dubai runs a comprehensive hop-on hop-off bus service to escort tourists to major landmarks throughout the city. A 1-day ticket costs approximately 225.00 AED.

Buy the Go Dubai Card

You can get significant savings on top museums, tours, activities, and attractions, if you buy a GO Dubai Card. An all-inclusive card starts at 759.00 AED for an adult and 519.00 AED for a child (ages 3 – 12). You can also choose a 3, 4, 5, or 7 calendar days’ card depending on the length of your stay and your Dubai itinerary.
