What makes Dubai in July special?


Dubai in July

The first thing that comes to mind when visiting Dubai in July is the weather. Even with its bayside location, summers tend to simmer the city. However, this also makes July the perfect time to unleash your nocturnal self and perceive Dubai’s nightly glamor. This weather also means that the number of tourists will be fairly low at this time. Since Dubai is chock full of world-class attractions and activities, visiting the city in July could give you the perfect opportunity to appreciate it in its entirety. Some of the most popular global attractions like the Burj Khalifa or the Dubai Frame can be enjoyed in relatively less hullabaloo in July. Dubai also hosts the Dubai Summer Surprises festival in July which definitely is a recommended experience.

Dubai Weather in July

An equatorial desert region in July is bound to have unimaginably searing weather. Dubai is no different. The average high in July is observed to be around 40°C while the temperature only drops as low as 30°C during the night. Rain is scarce and daylight lasts up to 12 hours during the month.

Where to Stay in Dubai during July

Choosing accommodation can be crucial during the summer months in the desert. You should be looking for a comfortable option as the peak daylight hours are quite harsh. Dubai provides luxury hotels as well as budget hostels. Choose accommodation around the downtown area to remain close to all the action. Here are a few recommended hotels for all budgets:

What to Pack for Visiting Dubai in July

If you live in a country that receives plenty of sunlight and an abundance of heat in the summer, you already know the drill. Pack breathable clothes and make sure they aren't of any dark color. Try to cover as much skin as possible. Carry plenty of sunblocks as you will need them every time you venture out before sunset. Irrespective of when you are going out, keep a bottle of water handy. It won't be a bad idea to carry an umbrella as well.

Getting Around Dubai in July

Dubai has an elaborate network of public transport. If you are planning to zip around the city, you will require a Nol Card. This transport card gives you unrestricted access to most of Dubai’s transport routes over multiple modes. Availing the Metro is a fast way of commuting. You are encouraged to opt for cabs after sundown. While setting out on long commutes for sightseeing purposes, keep the traffic situation in mind. Unlike many other tourist destinations, Dubai houses a large section of the working population, which has an adverse effect on the land transport situation.

Dubai in July - Must-Try Delicacies

Shish Tawook

We start with an Emirati specialty that has roamed the world already. The Shish Tawook is basically a stylized kebab that brings out the cultural flavors of the Middle East. Lebanese dips, pickles, and assorted fries are the best accompaniments with Shish Tawook. Make sure you try the dish from the Grand Barbecue Restaurant.

Al Machboos

Al Machboos is a typical Emirati dish, generously bathed in spices. The main ingredient in the dish is some sort of protein, like shrimp, lamb, or chicken. Lemon and onions give the rice its distinguished Arabic twist. It is consumed quite widely across UAE. Try the Al Machboos from Al Fanar for one of the special versions of the dish.

Camel Meat

If you are brave enough to travel to Dubai in July, you should definitely be game for this local obsession. Most auspicious occasions in the Emirates feature camel meat dishes. Though they have innumerable versions, the stuffed camel meat is fairly famous and equally delicious. Head over to The Local House Restaurant to try camel meat.

Al Harees

The Emirati palette has no shortage of eccentric combination of ingredients. Al Harees is a savory dish with a porridge-like consistency. It consists of at least one protein, wheat, and salted spices. The dish is associated with celebratory ambiance akin to Eid. For the best Al Harees, go to Al Makan at Souk Madinat Jumeirah.

Knafeh

If the Emirates could choose one dessert to represent their entire palette, it would be the Knafeh. The gooey sweet cheese at the center gives the dish its unique sticky texture. The dish is then seasoned with saffron and pistachio. You must have Knafeh from Zou Zou and Something Baked.

Tips for Visiting Dubai in July


  • Keep an eye out for great deals on accommodation and flights during July due to decreased tourist footfall.
  • Familiarize yourself with the rules and laws that you are to abide by in Dubai, especially in public transport vehicles.
  • Do not underestimate the popularity of Burj Khalifa or Dubai Frame. These attractions will need prior bookings no matter what time of the year you visit.
  • Enjoy your trip without worrying about your belongings. They are quite safe in Dubai, thanks to the strict laws.
  • Explore Old Dubai and taste the authentic Emirati dishes at a shoestring budget.
  • Note the lack of sidewalks in some parts of Dubai. You may have to take a cab to cross the road.
