Dubai Weather in September

What to Pack for Visiting Dubai in September

Dubai is a cosmopolitan city and people often dress to impress! For a trip to this dynamic city, it’s a good idea to pack summer wear that’s comfortable and casual. You can keep tons of light cotton wear, and layer it up when indoors as all places are air conditioned.

Getting Around Dubai in September

Public transport operations in Dubai are easy to understand and navigate, especially with a Nol Card! This serves as one card solution for many means of transport - the Metro, Buses, and even cabs. One can quickly get around the city in the day using the Metro, but it’s a good idea to avoid it after sunset as local commuters will be using the line and it’ll get too crowded. There are plenty of cabs available, and you can avail these for sightseeing or visiting monuments.

Tabbouleh

Ubiquitous to any Middle Eastern country, Tabbouleh is a salad that includes tomatoes, green onions. and cucumber, seasoned with fresh mint and lemon juice. The choicest meal for health fanatics who’re trying to eat clean, try a delicious plate of this at Shami Gourmet Dhaba and Restaurant.

Shish Tawook

Shish Tawook are marinated grilled chicken skewers served with Pita bread and a dipping sauce, usually hummus. It’s widely available in the Middle East and is often paired with fries and pickle. Reem Al Bawadi serves a mean plate of this meaty goodness!

Feras Aldiyafa Sweets is a favorite haunt of many locals for the tastiest slice of this mouth-watering pudding.
