Travel tips
Weather

Abu Dhabi has a sub-tropical, dry climate. Sunny blue skies and high temperatures can be expected most of the year. At the end of October, the weather tends to be warm and dry, with practically no rainfall and an average temperature of 26°C.

What to wear

Lightweight summer clothing is suitable for most of the year, but something slightly warmer may be needed for the winter months. Be sure to take some sort of jacket or sweater when visiting hotels or the conference centre as air conditioning can be strong.

Although the attitude towards dress is fairly liberal throughout the Emirates, you should be mindful of what you wear in certain times and places, especially when shopping or sightseeing. You are advised against wearing any clothing that is short or tight.

Currency

The local currency is the UAE Dirham (AED or Dhs). Credit and debit cards are widely accepted.
