Planning a vacation this November? Look no further than the UAE. Here's why;
1. The weather
Whereas summers are exceptionally hot in the UAE, towards the end of the year, the weather cools down enough to enjoy warm sunny beach days, water sports and sprawls along the Persian Gulf's pearly white sands.
2. Formula 1 Etihad Airways Abu Dhabi Grand Prix
By the end of the month, you won't want to miss out on the Middle East's biggest sporting (and social) event; the Abu Dhabi Formula 1. Whether auto racing is your thing or not, the grand event is held in the captivating Yas Island and includes a fun-packed weekend, parties, and celebrity entertainment.
3. Go on a desert safari
Since the weather is cooler, a desert safari is perfect for the adventure-seekers. Try the Liwa Desert; enchanting red sands stretched endlessly into the horizon.
4. Cruise the creek
Try a cruise along the Dubai creek. Music, dinner, drinks and the fascinating Dubai lights twinkling in front of you, what more could one want?
5. Food truck heaven
Head to Dubai at Ibn Battuta Mall for the best food truck scene you'll find! Truckers DXB runs for two weeks and offers everything from the best tacos, to pizza, steaks and much more. It's a food lovers dream come true!
6. Beach party bliss
Popular for its night scene, Dubai is a must when it comes to partying! And the all-day, all-night beach clubs are no exception. From Nikki Beach's white circus party, to Zero Gravity's club night, you'll always find a party to go to.
7. Meet a celebrity chef
It's the culinary month at Atlantis the Palm and this means celebrity chefs Nobu Matsuhisa, Gordon Ramsay and Giorgio Locatelli will be in Dubai at their resort restaurants. What does this mean? Exciting collaborations, special menus and exquisite meals.
8. Jenny from the block
JLo is in Dubai on November 17th performing at the 117Live concert. Need we say more?
9. Shape of you
Yes, you guessed it! Ed Sheeran is also performing in Dubai as part of the 117Live concert on November 23rd.
10. Outdoor movies
Why go to the movies indoors when you can enjoy the warm breeze at Pyramids at Wafi in Dubai. Sink into your beanbags and enjoy the popcorn!
11. A world tour
Opening for its 22nd season, the Global Village takes you all over the world without leaving Dubai. The festival of shows, rides, dining and shopping options is a must-see!
