Thanks but no thanks....no ready to become a cooked lobster.

been there, that sort of time , not as bad as people think as everything is air conditions even some outdoor cafes, but don't expect to suntan as uv is extreme.

Hot. Literally

Just waiting for the anti-halal brigade to vote it cold

which airline? ryainar?

I wouldn't visit dubai. Treat workers horrendously and like dirt. I looked at buying property there over 10 years ago but decided against it as too much building work and I thought it would be a massive building site for at least 20 years. Proved correct thus far.

Its a dump with a few fancy buildings on a load of sand. No thanks

great price. also good deal if you are going to far east or Australia etc, as you can then book return flights from Dubia onwards...

This looks like the deal that has encouraged the mother in law over from South Africa.

Shame you didn't, I invested in property around the same time you refer to.
I can gladly say I did pretty well.
Regards to your reference to a "few fancy buildings on a load of sand". I disagree, so would may others. Look at the number of tourists visit there each year - the building work is to accommodate such visitors.
On reflection, probably best you stay away!

I have been to Dubai several times for both business and pleasure and thoroughly enjoyed the place.

Don't let the shallow comments of narrow minded people put you off.

For the record, I am not Muslim...

Thread on topic please people
This is a Deal not a playground for Misc members who took a wrong turn

The deals from London that are coming up are with Ukrainian International Airlines for £238, not sure I really want to go via the Kiev in the Ukraine with all the problems going on out there.
Apparently though Kiev is perfectly safe and the problems are in the east of the country... I think it depends on everyones view.
But heat given anyway for a great deal.

Cold. I'd want to fly back, and I don't want to go to Dubai.

If this is 'off topic' then most deals on here seem to be going this way.

It might be helpful for some people for there to be constructive discussion on the deal that may help them make an informed decision.

It is a good deal, and having been to Dubai myself on quite a few occasions, I can say it is well worth a visit. Hotels are amazing and deals can be had if you know where to look.

Ramadan starts mid June so be aware of the laws about eating, drinking and smoking in public places or when driving.

I also invested in property in Dubai about the same time you were thinking about it ... Retired now on the profits and filling my time on forums about saving money:-£

Although it's warm, everywhere you go to has AC. Plenty to do to keep all ages occupied.

It's Ramadan then. That's why the flights are cheap.

Would tourist places be open during this time or will they be closed?

Have some heat,

Been Dubai a few times, it's basically home away from home but with luxury and lots of it!

Great deal and so what if it's Ramadhan - not everyone's a Muslim and majority of Dubai's tourists are non-Muslim.

Go enjoy a great deal!

Not sure, but you can't eat/drink in public. Maybe on the private beaches, but not out and about.

Other than the Arabs life goes on as normal for Muslims during Ramadhan. I doubt very much many tourists places will be closed. Besides the Arabs don't work anyway, it's mostly the Asians from the Indian subcontinent that run Dubai!

Actually, I forgot about this bit "There are restaurants and cafes that have a special licence open during the day for non- fasters and these will be screened off from public view so it is still possible to eat outside your home. Most hotels have an outlet open during the day too." Have not been to the ME in Ramadan for years.

You speaking from experience or just assuming?

Because a city like Dubai is solely dependent on the tourist industry so I'm sure they would not be putting any restrictions during Ramadhan. Besides the Arabs aren't usually around during the summer months - it's too hot!

During Ramadan Alcohol will be will served only only after 7pm approx. Also note that only one outlet in a hotel is allowed to serve Alcohol during Ramadan.

With regards to Eating out, it is strictly prohibited to eat or drink in public durng the Fasting hours. In a Few shopping Malls there will be special covered areas in the Food court where you might be able to grab a bite.

it is also v hot at this time and basically can't go out which defeats the object really.

It was 41 degrees in Dubai today.

Do not go during Ramadan.

I'm currently in Dubai/Abu Dhabi and it's hot here 42c don't even think about going even to the pool...the hot air in the shade is a real problem. I have been told that during Ramadan the city goes quiter. Tourist go about their business, but eating in restaurants or food courts in malls is restricted.

I'm coming back next week to London, last two days it's only been a nightlife scene for me to go out to really enjoy myself with family & friends (expats), but they all day summertime is gets ridiculously hot.


Good luck to anyone thinking about coming out here during the Summer months, try to avoid Ramadan period (approx 18th June to 18th July) and please be careful of the weather....also Dubai Metro is ridiculously packed during its rush hour period 3pm ish Sunday - Thursday. And traffic is a killer on Friday & Saturday, so avoid taking taxis if you can.

Great deal & Ramadan not a great problem. Superb place to go, highly recommend anytime.

I has been this price for over a year now...

Great deal. Dubai during Ramadan is great, was there last year. Go to Spain if all you want to do is sit around drinking on holiday :-)

I spent most of last year in Saudi Arabia. If you are religiously inclined, Dubai, comparatively speaking is like heaven!

is say you should at least have an open mind about it and see some of them with your own eyes.

I don't agree with theocracies but have to say virtually everybody I encountered was extremely polite and friendly.

For some reason the same people behind the wheel of a car are deranged....

It depends on where in London since it is huge. There is a difference between safety and freedom. In London you have both. They are absolute savages in the Arab States.

It depends where in UAE since its huge. Both freedom and safety exist is certain parts of the UAE. Dubai is one of those cities. In certain parts of London, people are afraid to leave their houses when it goes dark in fear of being robbed or raped. In this respect both safety and freedom are compromised.

What is this Liberal place in the UAE, I would love to know its name, it certainly is not Dubai. Israel is the only Liberal country in the middle east.
