CLOUDFRONTS TRAVELOGUE

“Of the gladdest moments in human life, methinks, is the departure upon a distant journey into unknown lands. Shaking off with one mighty effort the fetters of Habit, the leaden weight of Routine, the cloak of many Cares, and the slavery of Home, man feels once more happy.”

— Richard Francis Burton

Exploring UAE in Winter

Traveller: Smart Somesh

I went to Dubai with my Mom and brother in early Jan 2017 when it was still winter so that I can avoid the sultry Summer months. I also wanted to visit the Dubai Festival which is a month-long event from late December to early Jan.

Winter time in Dubai is very pleasant and I thoroughly enjoyed my week’s stay more than the last visit when it was peak summer time.

I also tried to visit the natural-side of UAE more this time around. But I did visit the Ferrari world in Abu-Dhabi and it was great.

The place I loved the most was our drive to Jebel Hafeet peak in Al-Ain. IT was chilly when we reached the top and was beautiful.

Of course, we saw the Burj Khalifa and the Dubai Mall Fountain

Advise for all the fellow travelers:
1. Dec- Feb is the best time to visit UAE
2. You need a personal/ rented vehicle to get around as public travel is not so great and expensive also.
3. Never break traffic rules in Dubai 🙂
