Averages for dubai in July
The United Arab Emirates are often known as being very traditional, but Dubai’s modern outlook in terms of culture and architecture is what makes it stands out as a top holiday destination. Controlled by the UK until 1971, there are many noticeable western influences in this Arabic desert region.
Although Dubai is hot all year round, July is one of the two hottest months of the year, with temperatures reaching a whopping 40 degrees Celsius. Overnight, temperatures remain high at around 29 degrees. There’s practically no rainfall during the summer months, although the humidity is through the roof.
The religious holiday of Ramadan occurs at different times each year depending on the moon cycles, but it is expected to take place during July until at least 2016. During Ramadan, Muslims are forbidden from eating, drinking, smoking or partaking in sexual activity during daylight hours. Non-Muslims are expected to respect this tradition and visitors may find many restaurants closed during the day.
However, this needn’t affect holidaymakers as hotel restaurants and bars often stay open to cater for tourists. This is a great time to check out some of the most famous hotels in the world such as the Atlantis The Palm with its The Lost Chambers Atlantis-themed aquarium and Aquaventure water park, or the Armani Hotel decorated in the sophisticated designer style from top to bottom. And don’t forget to check out the world famous Dubai Fountain.
Come sundown, Dubai comes alive and Iftars (breaking of the fast) happen all across the region. Non-Muslim visitors are invited to join in with Iftars, a time when locals come together to eat and celebrate. Le Royal Meridien Beach Resort and Spa holds visitor friendly events during the Holy month.
