Dubai is known for its incredible, sunny weather. With the lowest average temperature of around 20⁰C in January, you can expect 10 hours of sunshine a day, with blue skies and warm weather year round. In the hotter months, Dubai’s modern infrastructure is supported citywide with air-conditioning to keep you cool when you’re not lounging by the beach or enjoying Dubai’s walking and running tracks around the city.
One of the world’s safest cities
Dubai is consistently ranked as one of the world’s safest cities. The 2019 National Agenda Index found that 96.1% of UAE citizens (men and women) feel safe and secure, as the country has one of the lowest crime rates globally. With a state-of-the-art metro, tram and taxi public transport system, it’s quick and convenient to get around the city. No wonder it was voted as the region’s most liveable city in Mercer’s 2019 Quality of Living survey.
Multicultural and tolerant
Although Arabic is the official language, Dubai is a multicultural hub with English as the most widely spoken language. Home to over 3 million people from 200+ nationalities, Dubai is a fascinating cosmopolitan fusion of cultures, beliefs and values, united under a banner of tolerance and diversity.
While Dubai is a Muslim city, its National Tolerance Programme underpins the UAE’s active commitment to ensuring that every one of its residents is able to live life to the fullest, express themselves freely and pursue activities close to their hearts and their own culture.
