ABU DHABI - WHEN TO GO
In Abu Dhabi, these months are considered the cooler months, with temperatures ranging from the mid-70s to the mid-90s. To really experience Abu Dhabi and what the city has to offer, visitors need to plan on being outdoors and walking about. These months are the best time to visit beaches, kayak, and snorkel around the islands and enjoy wildlife reserves with over 10,000 animals.May through September
The best time to travel to the modern capital city of Abu Dhabi really depends on the reasons for visiting. Abu Dhabi is hot all year and rain can be extremely rare. The hottest time of the year is during the months of May through September, when temperatures reach over 100 degrees. If visitors know they will be mainly indoors during these summer months, then the heat should be manageable.Ramadan
Ramadan is the 9th and holiest month in the Islamic calendar and lasts 29 - 30 days. Muslims fast every day for its duration and most restaurants will be closed until the fast breaks at dusk. Nothing (including water and cigarettes) is supposed to pass through the lips from dawn to sunset. Non-Muslims are exempt from this, but should still refrain from eating or drinking in public as this is considered very impolite. Working hours are decreased as well in the corporate world. Exact dates of Ramadan depend on local astronomical observations and may vary somewhat from country to country. Ramadan concludes with the festival of Eid al-Fitr, which may last several days, usually three in most countries.
Estimated dates for Ramadan for the next four years - 27 May - 24 June 2017 - 16 May - 14 June 2018 - 6 May - 3 June 2019 - 24 April - 23 May 2020 - 13 April - 2 May 2021
