Averages for dubai in March
The second largest, and most densely populated of the United Arab Emirates is Dubai. It’s also one of the most multicultural areas, with many Indian, Pakistani, Filipino, American and European residents. Dubai enjoys a hot desert climate and provides white sandy beaches coupled with modern and unique sightseeing opportunities.
March brings temperatures ranging from 17 to 28 degrees Celsius in Dubai, with only a half inch of rain expected during the entire month. UV is high so sunscreen is advisable and the humidity increases slightly from previous months, but shouldn’t cause too much, if any, discomfort.
Dubai is an Arabic country and as such it holds a lot of history, tradition and custom that is largely unknown to foreign tourists. To understand more about the area, a trip to the Sheikh Mohammed Centre for Cultural Understanding is recommended. The centre strives to educate non-muslims on the religious and cultural aspects of the United Arab Emirates and offers cultural breakfasts and lunches which can be arranged in advance online. These sessions cost between £10 - £13 per person.
For an up close and personal glimpse into Dubai’s rich history, be sure to visit the Al Ahmadiya School and Heritage House. The school was opened in 1912 and became famous throughout the UAE for being Dubai’s first educational establishment. Behind the school is the founder’s old home which, along with the school building, has been renovated to allow visitors to understand life in Dubai before the modern advancements and architecture seen today. Admission is free and the air conditioning makes it a great place to cool off.
The 4* Arabian Courtyard Hotel and Spa is located in the old quarter of Dubai amongst many historical and cultural sites. Rooms costs as little as £50 per night and the on-site English-themed pub, the Sherlock Holmes, is great for those feeling a little homesick!
