Abu Dhabi enjoys hot, sunny weather all year around. So you'd think it would be great any time of year - but unless you really like the heat, we'd recommend going during the peak season of October-May. Outside of that, it can be uncomfortably hot.

When to Go

Tourist season runs from October to May each year. So if you're travelling at that time too, expect to encounter bigger crowds. There's a very good reason this is high season - it's the time of year with the most manageable temperatures.

We'd recommend not visiting Abu Dhabi during Ramadan - businesses will have reduced opening hours, and you'll have less options for dining out during your cheap holidays to Abu Dhabi.
