[{"media":[{"type":"text","content":"# Best time to visit Dubai\nSince Dubai is located in the middle of the Arabain Desert, the weather can be very harsh in the city. It's definitely one of those places you need to plan your trip around the climate.\n\nThe best time to visit Dubai is during the 'winter' months - November through March. Daytime temperatures linger around a comfortable 25°C (77°F) while evenings drop a few degrees. cool. But keep in mind that this is peak tourist season in the UAE, so attractions and beaches will be more crowded and hotels a lot more expensive."},{"content":"# How to get around in Dubai\nSince Dubai is a city designed for cars, the most comfortable way to get around Dubai is to rent a car. There are many highways connecting the city. Once you've factored in the necessary rental and insurance costs, petrol prices in the UAE are very low.\nAs with most Emiratis drivers, there is plenty of parking in Dubai and it's usually free - at least for a few hours. As a guide, an economy class rental car will cost around AED 220 ($60) per day. The 4X4 and luxury models will make you step back a little more, especially during high season.","type":"text"},{"content":"https://www.rentalcars.com/?adplat=100212634&adcamp=169223X1637046Xd7ec32682796ebac70ac1ba48a9525e9&adco=13973609&affiliateCode=cj&click_id=388e24c1c43e11ec83b0061f0a18050d","type":"link"},{"type":"text","content":"# Al Bastakia Historic Neighbourhood"},{"content":"https://firebasestorage.googleapis.com/v0/b/freeguides-prod.appspot.com/o/assets%2Ftours%2FQbbguA3Mc7Jo7VXAOsXh%2FCamello_y_campamento%2C_Al_Bastakiya%2C_Dubai%2C_2009-11-23%2C_DD_8878.jpg?alt=media&token=dfe9697a-c712-4006-8068-47027bb5cfb1","type":"img","version":1,"metadata":{"height":749,"width":1000}},{"content":"Dubai is known for its gleaming modern skyscrapers, but hidden beneath all that glass, you can explore the city's traditional heritage. Al Bastakiya (also known as Bastakiya Quarter or Al Fahidi Historic District) gives you a sense of what Dubai was like before it got its modern makeover.\n\nLocated on the banks of Dubai Creek, Al Bastakiya was founded in the 19th century when Dubai was developing into a thriving commercial hub. Residential and commercial businesses are housed in buildings made of stone, teak and sandalwood - that's not what you'd expect in Dubai! This walkable area is a maze of alleys and grassy courtyards, street art, cafes, museums and galleries.\n\nAl Fahidi Metro Station is a 10-minute walk from Al Bastakiya. I recommend getting here as early as possible before the sun heats up and then you can duck into the following attractions to stay cool.","type":"text"},{"content":"https://firebasestorage.googleapis.com/v0/b/freeguides-prod.appspot.com/o/assets%2Ftours%2FQbbguA3Mc7Jo7VXAOsXh%2FSnaptik_7023135880386759941_kamill-calvo.mp4?alt=media&token=59ec1a98-dc06-4691-b30e-5d31cee8b102","type":"video","metadata":{"width":540,"height":960}}],"location":{"longitudeDelta":0.14321712068773834,"latitude":25.26363175749425,"longitude":55.30042924999999,"latitudeDelta":0.09219986310369421},"address":"Al Bastakia Historic Neighbourhood"},{"address":"Dubai Museum","location":{"longitude":55.29735325,"latitude":25.263700957494287,"latitudeDelta":0.09219986310369421,"longitudeDelta":0.14321712068773834},"media":[{"content":"# Dubai Museum","type":"text"},{"type":"img","metadata":{"width":850,"height":640},"content":"https://firebasestorage.googleapis.com/v0/b/freeguides-prod.appspot.com/o/assets%2Ftours%2FQbbguA3Mc7Jo7VXAOsXh%2F320264-6.jpg?alt=media&token=edf36698-f382-4bfa-9395-8c2e33ad8a20","version":1},{"content":"The Dubai Museum is housed in the 18th century Al Fahidi Fort, which is the oldest building in Dubai.

The cloud-piercing Burj Khalifa is a staggering 830 meters (2,720 feet) tall and wherever you go in Dubai, you'll be constantly captivated by its gaze.\n\nWhile you can appreciate the architecture from the ground up, visiting the observatory means you can see the best views of the city and the Persian Gulf. It's a bit expensive but trust me, it's totally worth it!\n\nAdmission to the observatory (124 and 125 floors) starts at 149 AED ($40), you can buy tickets here.

Whichever option you choose, make sure to book your tickets online in advance!\n\nBurj Khalifa is usually open daily from 5:30 am. However, at the time of writing, entrance is restricted until 10am - because of the pandemic. My personal recommendation is to visit at sunrise instead of sunset because this way you will have less crowds and a more peaceful experience. The light is amazing for the photos.\n\nUntil there is a sunrise position, I recommend going as early as possible. You can visit Emaar's Burj Park (the next item on your Dubai itinerary) first until then. A 10-minute walk away, Burj Khalifa / Dubai Mall Metro Station is the nearest public transport option. Also, there is plenty of parking at the mall.","type":"text"},{"content":"https://www.getyourguide.fr/-l2703/?cmp=ga&cq_src=google_ads&cq_cmp=6656466866&cq_con=81243045338&cq_term=burj%20khalifa%20visiting%20hours&cq_med=&cq_plac=&cq_net=g&cq_pos=&cq_plt=gp&campaign_id=6656466866&adgroup_id=81243045338&target_id=aud-902616714622%3Akwd-298954424585&loc_physical_ms=1028581&match_type=b&ad_id=395198916870&keyword=burj%20khalifa%20visiting%20hours&ad_position=&feed_item_id=&placement=&device=c&partner_id=CD951&gclid=Cj0KCQjw6pOTBhCTARIsAHF23fIf3tcliBQeeGpf1JidehS7GsUSkwC5TqXoUGWG2znwBgtnAwgbOLwaAhNWEALw_wcB&visitor-id=641K3UULAP8J07QKOVGIPX2ZZPTCYIXS&locale_autoredirect_optout=true","type":"link"},{"content":"https://firebasestorage.googleapis.com/v0/b/freeguides-prod.appspot.com/o/assets%2Ftours%2FQbbguA3Mc7Jo7VXAOsXh%2FSnaptik_7045170139687439618_asifgraphy.mp4?alt=media&token=2c610a70-a1ec-4fe1-94b9-ad833e46bf13","type":"video","metadata":{"width":576,"height":1024}}],"address":"Burj Park by Emaar","location":{"longitude":55.2735508,"latitudeDelta":0.09219986310369421,"longitudeDelta":0.14321712068773834,"latitude":25.194384307470802}}]
