At night it becomes perceptibly chilly, only + 18 ° C. Water in the sea – for hardened (Russians, that is), + 21 ° C. It would seem that tours should cost even less, but how would be wrong: the minimum amount – from 40 000 rubles for all the same a week And then after the 10th, at the end of the holidays.

In February, the weather is very similar to January, by March is warming. The sea warms up to + 23 ° С, the first brave bathers are splashing in the water. We went to February in Ras al-Khaimah, it was normal, and sunbathed, and swam. By the way, the Persian Gulf, on the shores of which is Dubai, warms up more slowly. Guest reviews advise in February resorts Oman Bay, for example, Fujairah.

United Arab Emirates in June, July, August

In the UAE in the summer comes a terrible inferno, and with it comes and re low season.

In June, the thermometer can get right up to the mark at + 40 ° C. The water is heated to + 32 ° С and not brings no pleasure. Beach season continues only the most heat-resistant tourists. Sand storms are frequent in the country hammered everywhere. I don’t want to talk about the prices of tours, obviously this This is not worth it (but if you really need it – then from 60 000 rubles for two).

In July, they even try to leave the country. local During the day it is + 42 ° C, you can only exist where there is air conditioning. In August, the heat continues – in the daytime + 43 ° С, at night – + 33 ° С. Water temperature + 34 ° C! To all this delight is added and increased humidity.

UAE in the fall begin to breathe deeply, catching the breath after unbearable summer heat. And immediately there are tourists.

It’s still hot in September air temperature reaches + 38 ° С, and night temperature + 32 ° С. Water in the sea heated to + 32 ° C. Prices for tours this month are quite comparable to summer. Seven-day rest for two will cost from 50 000 rubles.

The air gets cooler in October a few more degrees: in the daytime + 33 ° С, at night + 29 ° С. Already can not only to constantly sit in the water, but also to go for walks. The tourist season is coming. With regards to “all inclusive”: October 2019 you can find vouchers from 125 000 rubles for two for 7 days

If you are going to a family vacation in the fall, but still think, in what month is better to go to rest, my advice to you is to choose October, with its first half. Children will enjoy a mild climate, and parents – not the highest prices.

In November, the air in Dubai “cools” to + 30 ° С, and even up to + 25 ° С at night. It rains in the country. Not Be scared, it’s still not the tropics, but the desert :) 3-4 precipitations times. This whole “rainy season” absolutely does not interfere with full rest by the warm sea at +28 degrees. November prices hold on October level.

Our feedback

Besides visiting the Sheikh Zayed mosque try jeep safaris!

Do not get tired of repeating that the key to a good vacation is careful review of reviews. And for those who are really quite lazy read a multi-book, all the important points I brought in one small such a list:

  • The UAE is a Muslim country. Therefore should follow certain rules in clothing, especially for women: do not appear outside hotel grounds with frank neckline and open knees
  • The country runs dry law, alcohol is prohibited. But for foreigners made an exception – you can drink in bars or restaurants (in Sharjah with this strictest)
  • Do not go to the Emirates in the holy month of Ramadan – a lot restrictions. But after the Ramadan, you can and even need to go, especially shopping lovers: all major stores are satisfied sales
  • By the way, it is customary to bargain here even in stores.
  • The beach season in the UAE is year-round. But the sun in these latitudes so active and strong that Europeans burn even in cloudy the weather. Take more sunscreen!

Why do we like the UAE? Think for yourself:

– a visa is needed, but is being done right on the border – no additional problems and money!

– the tourist season in the UAE begins when in our latitudes slushy something comes, which means you want to bask in the sun even stronger

– how much to fly to Dubai will depend on which flight you are prefer. A direct flight from Moscow will take 5 hours – in principle, not for long

When is it cheaper to rest in the UAE?

For those who want to save money and go to the Emirates is not in the resort the season, the best month may be December or the end of May.

It is also worth paying attention to where to choose the tour. What already mentioned above, the coast of the Gulf of Oman is softer climate than the Persian Gulf resorts (Dubai, Sharjah, Ras al-Khaimah or Abu Dhabi). And Sharjah and Ras Al Khaimah will manage cheaper than futuristic Dubai or the capital of Abu Dhabi.
