Dubai

Dubai’s law strictly forbids the intake of alcohol in public spaces and while driving. However, alcohol consumption is permitted in bars attached to hotels, clubs, restaurants, and private functions.

Due its location in Arabian Desert, Dubai is usually characterized by hot, humid climate for most part of the year. During summer months, the temperature can go up to 40 to 45 degree Celsius. Alternatively, the winter that runs from November to April is pleasant, refreshing, and salubrious as temperature drops down to 25 degree Celsius or even less, especially in December – January months.

Food

Supermarkets are open. Takeaway food can be delivered. Some hotels have a restaurant available where non-fasters can eat (Dubai is better served than the rest of the UAE in this regard) and room service remains available.

No, during fasting hours, even non-Muslims are expected to follow the rules of fasting. You are allowed to eat, drink and smoke in private. During work, companies are required to provide an eating room away from those fasting.

Fasting follows the sunset and sunrise. So make sure to check up a prayer timing sheet and follow that for the times when eat is not allowed.
