How to dress for the weather
During the day, when the sun shines, holidaymakers wear light beachwear. In November, the difference between day and night temperatures is already large, so the evening by the sea is cool. For evening promenades and trips to the desert, take with you pants, a fleece and a windbreaker.
Tatiana: “In the evenings it was a little cold, we took blouses, but they never came in handy, because it was still warm enough.

Precipitation and hurricanes.
The UAE has an arid climate; rainfall is rare here. Although November is considered the beginning of the wet season, there is only 10mm of rainfall per month. An umbrella will hardly come in handy!
There are sandstorms in the Arab Emirates. The elements begin suddenly and can last for several days. No one can give an accurate prediction of whether there will be sandstorms in the UAE in November 2022. However, the locals know how to recognize the signs of impending bad weather, and hotel employees warn tourists in advance. If you know that a storm is coming, cancel trips to the desert and excursions outside. It’s much safer to wait out the weather trouble indoors.
Peter: “It may rain, but it will be short and you won’t even notice it passing.”

Is it worth to rest in the UAE in November 2022
According to tourist reviews, November is the best month to vacation in the UAE. A trip to the Arab Emirates in the high season has many advantages. You get a good tan, warm sea, cool weather and the opportunity to get acquainted with Arabian traditions. This is the time when tourists walk, go on excursions and do not fear to get burnt in a couple of minutes or get a heat stroke. There are not many disadvantages – high prices for tours, rising prices for accommodation and crowds of tourists.
Maria Stepanchenko: “The November weather allowed to visit excursions and to swim in the gulf and to go shopping. It’s a pity that our vacation lasted just a week”.
If you’re interested in a beach holiday, choose the warmer Fujairah. For entertainment it’s better to go to Dubai or Abu Dhabi.
Divers in November are out of luck. From October to December in the Persian Gulf and Gulf of Oman are the so-called “red tides”. In the coastal zone of rapid multiplication of corals and algae. Because of this the sea water becomes turbid and turns brown. Ideal conditions for diving will begin only in January.

In November, there are many sporting events in the UAE. The most spectacular is the Formula 1 round of the world championship. You can watch the three-day race on Yas Island. Abu Dhabi hosts an international date festival, and at the end of the month the capital city hosts a beautiful Art Festival.
In addition to hyped attractions and entertainment centers, there are interesting places in the Emirates, for which you do not have to pay to visit. In Dubai, go to the Museum of Camels and the Al Fahidi Fort, admire the pink flamingos in the Ras Al Khor reserve and the beautiful yachts at Dubai Marina Bay.
Abu Dhabi offers free guided tours of the Sheikh Zayd Mosque. Very impressive ethnographic village and walks along the waterfront Corniche. If you vacation in Sharjah, go to a free show of dancing fountains, a walk through the Blue Market, check out the Museum of Art and the Al Nour Mosque.

Because of the difficulties with air communication and borders, the UAE in November 2022 is one of the most popular destinations. Holidays in the Emirates in the fall is a pleasure: the Persian Gulf is still warm enough for comfortable bathing, the sun does not sizzle tourists during excursions, and prices in October-November for recreation are not as high as in December.

Many tourists claim that November is the best month for a holiday in the UAE and are keen to enjoy a slushy November in one of the sunny emirates. And I agree with them, it’s a shame that vacations usually don’t last more than two weeks!

Despite the fact that the sea and air are a couple of degrees warmer in the UAE in early November – the holiday season lasts the whole month.

Good hotels in Dubai and Sharjah
I’ve been on several promotional tours in the UAE and have seen a couple dozen of the best hotels in Dubai. Also, during my time working for a travel company, I have developed my own list of “favorites”. I’ve already written a separate big article about the best 4-5 star hotels in Dubai in 2022.
I’m tearing away from my heart my favorite hotels in Dubai:

What to do in the UAE?
November weather allows not only to relax on the beach, but also to actively explore the country and have fun. Here are a few ideas where to go to break the “languid” beach life:
➢ spend a day at one of Dubai’s best water parks ➢ assemble your “best attractions” checklist and put a cherished check mark next to each ➢ don’t forget the UAE capital – there are inexpensive day trips there ➢ go to one of the amusement parks to get an adrenaline boost and have a lot of fun. My favorite is Motiongate based on the popular Columbia Pictures blockbusters ➢ visit the popular La Perle by Dragone, a water show with visual effects, performers, stuntmen and gymnasts. I was most impressed with the motorcyclists number!

Something new is constantly emerging in the emirates – for example, a night crab hunt. Who would have thought that you would feel like a crab hunter, not somewhere in Southeast Asia, and in the land of the sheiks and oil.

Where’s the best place to go to the UAE with kids in November?
A family vacation with children in the UAE implies clean sandy beaches, good service in the hotels and entertainment to keep the kids entertained. Therefore, the best resorts for recreation with children – Dubai and Sharjah.
I’ll give some tips for a family holiday in the UAE:
- Choose hotels with animation and a children’s club so that the child can be distracted for a while
- Don’t miss out on the excursions – there are plenty of places to take your child to: waterparks, amusement rides, zoos and the stunning Garden of Wonders
- Mention Legoland and Ferrari World, and your child will behave perfectly all the way.
- Wear sunscreen, even on cloudy days.
- try to book a hotel with a minimal breakfast and dinner so you don’t have to worry about feeding your family.
Tourist reviews of the UAE in November
The UAE in November is excellent for a beach holiday, and this is confirmed by numerous reviews of tourists about the weather.
“While in Russia the rain and slush, in Dubai the weather is perfect for any kind of holiday, whether it is beaches or excursions. This is the third year in a row that I’ve shortened my cold days in the UAE in the fall and I plan to come here again in 2022!”
“We were in Dubai in November and didn’t regret it one bit – it was a pleasure to swim! It was warm in the water and on the shore. There are already a little more tourists than September, but that doesn’t stop us from enjoying our beach vacation.”
“For a long time I wanted to ride camels in the desert, but I kept putting it off because it was too hot to go there in summer. Last year the vacation fell on November and I finally realized my dream and went to the desert. In general, the weather in Dubai in November allows to go on excursions with comfort, I’m not interested in beach vacation. So I’m very glad that I chose the Emirates.
Pluses and minuses of the holiday
Arab Emirates in November – a solid plus: ✓ warmed up to +28 ° C Persian Gulf and sandy beaches ✓ comfortable weather for excursions and safaris ✓ low prices on the eve of December and January holidays ✓ excellent service in hotels and restaurants at an affordable price ✓ direct flights from Russia, which is bustling with search engines for airline tickets.
of the minuses: ✓ the prices of restaurants, stores and entertainment are high – or you have to cut down, or set aside a good amount to feel relaxed ✓ in the UAE can not drink alcohol on the streets, in some emirates it is forbidden – but I think this is a plus
