Best time to go to Abu Dhabi

Thanks to its year-round warm weather, basking in sunshine’s part and parcel of trips to Abu Dhabi, whenever you visit. The mercury often hovers well over the 30°C mark during July and August. Meanwhile the likes of April, May, June and October are a little bit cooler, with temperatures hitting the mid-twenties. January’s the coldest month, but even then, things don’t dip lower than the mid-teens. And, as you’d expect in the desert, rain’s a pretty rare occurrence.
