Whilst there are several times of the year to choose from, October is seen as the time to fly to United Arab Emirates, however, it is possible to get good deals throughout the year. August tends to be the warmest period in United Arab Emirates so if you are looking for sun or warmer climates then look to fly around this time. February is the wettest if you need to factor this in to your plans.

After the British withdrew from the Gulf in the 1970s, the United Arab Emirates was formed comprising seven sheikhdoms including Abu Dhabi and Dubai. The landscape is similar to many other Arab countries: long stretches of desert alongside crystal clear beaches, the UAE embraces western ideals while retaining traditional values. Travellers coming off their flight to the UAE will be amazed to find a country that effortlessly blends old with new. Behind every gleaming shopping mall is an old souk and beyond its glitzy cities are ancient sites and old fishing villages waiting to be explored.

Before booking your UAE flight it’s important decide which emirate you want to stay in since hotel accommodation is usually booked months in advance. The “Vegas of the Middle East”, Dubai, offers holidaymakers the best of everything – from shopping to eating out while Abu Dhabi’s beach resorts provide a more relaxing stay away from the crowds. Year-round both cities play host to a variety of world-renowned cultural and sporting events, most notably the Abu Dhabi Gold Championship, the Dubai World Cup and the Dubai Shopping Festival.

Getting around United Arab Emirates

Inter city bus services are available.

Many leading car-hire companies such as Avis, Budget and Thrifty, are represented at the airports and around the UAE. As you’d expect from an oil-producing country, petrol is very cheap. Drive on the right.

Taxis are plentiful and inexpensive both around Dubai and for long-distance trips. And a water taxi (abra) across the Creek is a tourist must-do.

What is good to know if travelling to United Arab Emirates?

  • Abu Dhabi, the capital of the UAE, is a green city with several parks and gardens. The Old Fort is the oldest building in Abu Dhabi, dating from 1793. Outside the city, go wadi-bashing (dune-driving) or sand skiing on the sand dunes around Liwa.
  • Dubai is a desert paradise where the traditional (Jumeirah Mosque, which offers tours to non-Muslims; Sheikh Saeed’s restored house; Gold Souq; falconry; camel racing; and dhow sailing) is found alongside the glaringly modern (the Mall of the Emirates, the largest shopping centre outside North America which has the Middle East’s first indoor ski destination; the instantly recognisable Burj al-Arab hotel, the only seven-star hotel in the world; and the palm tree-shaped man-made islands).
  • Fujairah is the mountainous emirate situated on the Gulf of Oman. The snorkelling is wonderful, with cuttlefish, clownfish, pufferfish and turtles to be seen. Snoopy Island is a shore dive, easily accessible from the beach at the Sandy Beach Motel. The Inchcape 1 is a wreck dive. The boat was sunk in 2001 and this site is rated highly for its visibility (up to 15 metres / 50 feet) and abundance of marine life, which includes pufferfish, barracuda and moray.
  • Ras Al Khaimah (RAK) is in the north of the UAE, on the Persian Gulf. It is divided into two parts; the western part is known as Old Ras Al Khaimah (the museum is here) and the eastern part is known as Al Nakheel. Before oil, pearling was this emirate’s business and it is possible to take a tour of the old pearl route. Other attractions are the Hajjar Mountains and the wadis that cross them, the mangroves, and red dunes. RAK also has a great camel track and races are held here between mid-September and the end of April.
  • Sharjah, the third-largest emirate, boasts beautifully restored buildings in the Heritage Area as well as the Sharjah Art Center. The Blue Souq and Souq al-Arsah offer lively shopping experiences.
