TRAVEL
The United Arab Emirates, one of the world's fastest growing tourist destinations, has all the right ingredients for an unforgettable holiday, sun, sand, sea, sports, unbeatable shopping, top-class hotels and restaurants, an intriguing traditional culture, and a safe and welcoming environment.


The United Arab Emirates (UAE) is situated along the south-eastern tip of
the Arabian peninsula between 22º 50 and 26º north latitude and between
51º and 56º 25 east longitude. Qatar lies to the north-west, Saudi Arabia to
the west, south and south-east, and Oman to the south-east and north-east.
Occupying an area of about 83, 600 sq. km (32,400 sq. miles) – roughly
the size of Portugal. The coastline of the UAE was approximately 1318 km but
land reclamation projects, notably the three 'Palms', are extending this figure
.

WHEN TO VISIT

The best time to visit the UAE is from October up until May.
In October the weather may still be quite hot (up to 35C), blue skies are the norm and the evenings are warm. At this stage the tourist season is well under way.
Daytime temperatures are ideal during November, December, January and February (around 24C) although the evenings may be a little cool (13C). North-westerly winds (shamal) sometimes blow during these winter months, bringing choppy seas. Most of the annual rainfall occurs between December and March, but this tends to be in the form of short heavy downpours that rapidly clear away. Indeed some winters are totally dry. By March–April, temperatures are beginning to rise during the day (early 30s) but humidity is still low and the evenings are warm. May can be quite hot again (late-30s).
June–September are to be avoided, especially the July–August period which is very hot (high 40s) and humid (100 per cent). However hotels and golf clubs and other facilities offer very good deals during the summer months and it is worth remembering that hotels, shops, in fact all buildings, cars, buses etc are air-conditioned.

Ramadan

You should also consider whether you would like to visit during the Muslim holy month of Ramadam. During Ramadan (the exact dates move forward by approximately 11 days each year), Muslims do not eat or drink between sunrise and sunset. Visitors are requested not to eat, drink or smoke in public places during this time. Most restaurants are closed during the day, although food will be served in your hotel, either in your room or in a secluded area of the hotel. Alcohol is served in some emirates after sunset.
Despite these restrictions, there are certain advantages in visiting the UAE during at this time. You may be able to obtain discount rates on some hotels and once the daily fast is broken (by the iftar meal after sunset) the streets are a hive of activity, which lends a carnival atmosphere to the towns.
Approximate dates for commencement of Ramadan:
01/08/11 20/07/12 09/07/13

Customs
Customs clearance in the UAE is fast and efficient. No customs duties are applied to personal belongings.

All personal imports of such materials are checked at customs. Since strict copyright laws are being enforced in the UAE, pirated video and audiotapes or illegal computer software will be confiscated.
Needless to say controlled substances such as cannabis, opium etc, are banned and the penalties for handling these drugs are severe. If a blood test for illegal drug usage proves positive, you can be charged with a criminal offence – even if you used the drug before arrival in the UAE. The importation of firearms and dangerous weapons is also restricted.
Duty free allowances
2000 cigarettes; 400 cigars; 2 kg tobacco; 2 litres of spirits and 2 litres of wine (non-Muslims only) and perfume. It is prohibited to import alcohol into Sharjah and you are generally not allowed to bring alcohol into the country if you are travelling by land.

HOTELS
Accommodation in the UAE is of a very high standard and most of the world’s top hotel chains run five-star hotels in the Emirates, the pièces de resistance being the Emirates Palace Hotel in Abu Dhabi and the Burj al-Arab in Dubai. There are also a number of excellent locally run properties suitable for both tourists and business travellers. Several of the hotels are outstanding examples of modern architecture. Swimming pools, tennis courts and fully equipped health centres are the norm. Most waterfront hotels have excellent beaches and extensive watersports facilities. If your budget does not extend to a five-star hotel, there are alternatives, most also of a high standard.
Away from the main cities, some spectacular destinations, such as the Anantara-run Desert Islands Resort on Sir Bani Yas island, the dramatically located Qasr Al Sarab in the famous 'Empty Quarter' (the largest sand desert in the world) and the beautiful Banyan Tree Al Wadi in Ra's al-Khaimah, have opened up in recent years, adding impressive variety and value to the accommodation pool in the UAE. Fujairah, on the east coast, has also invested heavily in resorts.
Your choice of hotel will depend on the options on offer by your tour packager or the location and type of facilities that your require. For more detailed information on hotels in the UAE access the specialised websites listed in the links section at the top of the page.
For further information on accommodation access the following websites – some will take online bookings:

GETTING AROUND
Most tourists visiting the UAE on all-in package tours will base themselves at one or more hotels in the UAE, using the ubiquitous and inexpensive taxis for sightseeing and shopping, and local tour companies for more extended trips. The Metro in Dubai is also an excellent way of getting around that city. However, it is worth remembering that cars and four-wheel drives are readily available for hire, the road network is excellent and there are intriguing places to visit far from the cosmopolitan cities.

TRAVEL TIPS

We have included a wide range of travel tips in order to make your trip to the UAE an outstanding success. But do be aware that these are guidelines and some information, such as entry formalities, are subject to sudden changes and should be checked with your nearest UAE embassy before departure.
SECURITY
Personal safety
The UAE is one of the safest places in the world to visit. In fact, it has been designated the world’s safest holiday destination by the international travel industry on two occasions. Nevertheless, it is a good idea to take out travel insurance and to take the normal precaution to safeguard yourself and your valuables.

TIPPING
Tipping is not compulsory, but is common practice. Gratuities to staff at hotels are at your discretion. Most restaurants add service charges to the bill (Abu Dhabi 16 per cent; Sharjah 15 per cent; Dubai 10 per cent). If this charge is not included, add 10 per cent of the total to the bill. Taxi drivers do not expect to be tipped. Supermarket baggers, bag carriers and windscreen washers at petrol stations are generally given a tip.
PHOTOGRAPHY
Ask permission before photographing people in general. Avoid photographing Muslim women and do not photograph airports, docks, telecommunications equipment, government buildings, military and industrial installations.
TIME
The UAE is four hours ahead of GMT. The time does not change during the summer. This means that there is a three-hour difference between UK and UAE local times in summer and a four-hour difference in winter.
ELECTRICITY
Domestic supply is 220 volts. Sockets suitable for three-pin 13 amp plugs of British standard design are the norm. However, it is a good idea to bring an adaptor with you. Alternatively, adaptors can be purchased in local supermarkets. Appliances purchased in the UAE will generally have two-pin plugs attached.
WEIGHTS AND MEASURES
The UAE uses the metric system, although British and US standard weights and measures are understood.
CLOTHING
Lightweight summer clothing is ideal with a wrap, sweater or jacket for cooler winter nights and air-conditioned premises. Although the dress code in the UAE is generally casual, guests in the larger hotels do tend to dress more formally in the evening. Since you are visiting a Muslim country, bikinis, swimsuits, shorts and revealing tops should be confined to beach resorts. Women are usually advised not to wear short skirts and to keep their shoulders covered. Note that in Sharjah women are prohibited from wearing swimsuits on public beaches.
TOILETS
Most shopping centres, public gardens, museums etc have clean, well-maintained public toilets. Outside of the cities, you can find good public toilets at restaurants and petrol stations.
FOOD AND WATER

The standard of food hygiene and water quality is extremely high, especially in all of the larger centres. You should take the time to investigate conditions in smaller cafés in remote areas, although again standards are usually good. Raw salads and shawarmas (meat cooked on a spit and served in a pittta bread sandwich) are to be avoided if you have any doubts.

Drinking water is usually produced by desalination so it is normally safe to drink, nevertheless you may prefer the taste of bottled water. In any case it is advisable to drink plenty of water in the heat so carry a bottle with you at all times.


CONTROLLED DRUGS GUIDELINES

List of Restricted Medication in the UAE
Below is a list of Controlled Medicines and Medications, registered with the Ministry of Health in the UAE and enforced by the UAE Ministry of Interior and International Narcotic Controlled Board (INCB).

These items are essentially available only in hospitals and in large community pharmacies, under the prescription of doctors. The Ministry of Health advises that unlicensed, controlled medicines can only be imported into the UAE through hospitals and not by individuals.

However, the Drug Control Department of the Ministry of health does have special regulations for personal import of such items: patients or travelers carrying prescribed prescription medications must have their prescriptions issued by licensed doctors, attested by a notary public, and, in the case of U.S. citizens, duly authenticated by both the secretary of state of one’s U.S. state, and finally also authenticated by the Secretary of State of the U.S. Government in Washington, D.C.

Further queries may be directed to the UAE Ministry of Health’s Drug Control Department in Abu Dhabi, P.O. Box 848, Fax: + 971 2 6313 742.

MONEY MATTERS

The UAE operates a free, open economy and there are no currency regulations in operation. It is extremely easy to change money at banks and exchange houses throughout the country where the best rates are available.

CURRENCY AND EXCHANGE RATES
Currency
The dirham (pronounced dir-ham) is the official currency of the UAE. Dirham notes are in 5, 10, 20, 50, 100, 200, 500, and 1000 denominations. The dirham is divided into 100 fils, coins include Dh1, 50, 25, 10 and 5 fils (10 and 5 fils are rarely used). The value is written in Arabic only but Arabic numerals are easy to memorize (see section on Arabic Language).
Exchange
There are no currency regulations and foreign currency of almost any denomination is readily exchanged in the UAE. The dirham is index linked to the dollar and the official exchange rate is Dh3.671 = US$ 1.00. The best exchange rates are generally available at private moneychangers found throughout the UAE, but especially in the more popular souqs and shopping centres.

The UAE Exchange Centre (associated with Western Union) has branches throughout the UAE. Thomas Cook Al Rostamani (authorized representative of Thomas Cook’s financial division) and Al Razouki International Exchange Company are also well represented.

METHODS OF PAYMENT
Hotel exchange rates
Hotels offer a bureau de change service. However the rate is usually less favourable than that available at moneychangers and banks..
Personal cheques
Although there have been major changes in recent years, the UAE is still a cash-driven society and personal cheques are not readily accepted.
Travellers’ cheques
Most travellers’ cheques can be cashed at hotels, some moneychangers and banks. You should enquire about the commission before exchanging your cheques.
Credit cards
Most internationally recognized credit cards (e.g. VISA, MasterCard, American Express, Diners) are accepted by car rental companies, larger shops, hotels and some restaurants. However, you should carry some cash for general shopping and eating out at smaller establishments. Some small retailers, even if they do accept credit cards, may charge an additional 5 per cent for processing your payment with a credit card.

ATM
Your ATM card is probably the most convenient method of obtaining cash and ATM’s are located at many local banks. However, it would be wise to check beforehand with your own bank whether your card will work in the UAE. Check also whether there is a transaction fee for cash withdrawal from ATM machines using a foreign bankcard.



FOOD AND DRINK

Eating Out
Visitors from many parts of the world along with a multi-ethnic resident community have ensured that a sophisticated and innovative food culture has developed in the UAE. Almost any type of food is available, from classic European to Pacific Rim. You can eat Mexican, Polynesian, Japanese, Chinese, Thai, Korean, Indian, Pakistani, Persian, Italian and French cooking, and more, at some of the finest restaurants in the Middle East.
In recent years, celebrity chefs have launched a variety of fashionable pricey restaurants in Abu Dhabi and Dubai. Gordon Ramsay’s Verre (04 227 1111) at The Hilton Dubai Creek was the first to open. It is now run by Michelin-starred Head Chef Scott and is famous for its chef’s table.
Gary Rhodes’ Mezzanine (04 399 8888) features many of his original British-inspired dishes in an elegant setting at Dubai Marina’s Grosvenor House. Rhodes has also opened the Rhodes Twenty10 grill at the nearby Le Royal Meridien Beach Resort .
Vineet Bhatia, the first Indian chef to receive a Michelin star, is shining bright and clear at Indego (04 399 8888) also in Dubai Marina’s Grosvenor House.
Renowned Japanese chef Nobu Matsuhisa produces some of his signature dishes at Nobu (04 426 26260) in Atlantis Hotel at the tip of The Palm.
Three restaurants were also launched at the newly opened One&Only The Palm resort in Dubai under the guidance of the Michelin-starred French chef Yannick Alleno. Whilst Michelin-starred French chef Pierre Gagnaire recreates French style at his richly-decorated restaurant Reflets (04 701 1111) in Dubai's Intercontinental Hotel in Festival City.
Abu Dhabi has not been left behind in the rush to open up branded restaurants with a focus on fine dining. Hakkasan (02 690 7999), famous for its flagship Michelin-starred London-based Chinese restaurant, is making a name for itself at Emirates Palace Hotel on the Corniche.
Marco Pierre White, who operates a branded restaurant Frankie’s on Dubai’s JBR Walk in conjunction with the jockey Frankie Dettori, has also opened a steakhouse and Frankie's Italian Restaurant and Bar (02 654 3238) at Abu Dhabi’s Fairmont Bab Al Bahr.
The world-famous Italian restaurant brand Cipriani’s (02 565 0010) can be experienced in all its splendour at Yas Marina Yacht Club on Abu Dhabi’s Yas Island. And if you are on Yas Island, don’t forget to try Nautilius (02 656 0760) at the Yas Island Hotel, which has been getting ravishing reviews for its seafood fare.
Gourmet food, including cookery demonstrations by renowned chefs can be experienced at two unique festivals in the UAE, the Taste of Dubai Festival, which usually takes place in March at Dubai Media City and Gourmet Abu Dhabi, a celebration of culinary superlatives held in February.
International fast-food chains, serving the standard fare of hamburgers, chips, pizzas etc (McDonalds’s, Pizza Hut, Pizza Inn, Hardee’s, Wimpy, Dunkin’ Donut) are also located in the larger cities. Kentucky Fried Chicken seems to be a particular favourite. International theme restaurants such as TGI Friday’s, Planet Hollywood, Fashion Café, Hard Rock Café and Henry J Bean’s are all represented in the Emirates. If you cannot find anything to suit in that list, small ethnic cafés and corner stalls are ubiquitous. Shisha cafés offer an opportunity to smoke a shisha (hubble-bubble pipe) and serve food, coffee, tea and fruit juices and corner stalls serve sharwarmas and other sandwiches.

Gulf and Middle Eastern food is also available in a wide variety of venues, from expensive restaurants to local cafés. Fresh fish from the Arabian Gulf is always good – try lobster, crab, shrimp, or grouper, tuna, kingfish, red snapper, grilled, stuffed, or fried with spices. But it is not just a question of variety, make no mistake the food is generally good and the standard of service is high.

Pork
Muslims are prohibited from eating pork so it is not included in Arab menus. Hotels frequently have substitutes such as beef sausages and veal rashers on their breakfast menus. If pork is available, it is clearly labelled as such.
Alcohol
Alcohol is generally only served in hotel restaurants and bars (but not in Sharjah). Exceptions are some clubs (e.g. golf clubs) and associations. Restaurants that are not associated with hotels are not permitted to serve alcohol.


Local Dishes
One of the most exciting aspects of travelling to a new destination is the opportunity to sample local food. Gulf food is, of course, very similar to Lebanese and other Arab cuisine. However, there are some variations. Mezze (starter or hors d’oeuvre) as it is served in UAE restaurants is a wonderful treat, comprising some or all of the following:
Hummus (chick pea dip or spread) Kibbe (meat patties made from minced lamb, bulghur and onions) Tabbuleh (salad of couscous or bulghur with diced tomatoes, onions, mint and parsley) Moutabel (aubergine or eggplant dip) Kussa mahshi (stuffed courgettes or zucchini) Warak enab (stuffed vine leaves) Felafel (bean patties- often served in pitta bread at corner stalls) Pitta bread (unleavened bread)
Khuzi (a stuffed whole roast lamb on a bed of spiced rice) is the dish that would have been served at a mansaf, a traditional bedouin feast, where a selection of food would have been placed on the floor in the centre of a ring of seated guests. Makbus (casserole of meat, usually lamb, or fish with rice) is a particular favourite in the UAE. So too are hareis (slow-cooked wheat and lamb), biryani (meat or fish cooked with Indian-style spiced rice) and shurba addis (lentil soup). Try a traditional Arab breakfast of ful medames (a bean dish in a tomato sauce on which is sprinkled chopped onion, egg and other condiments, accompanied by local yoghurt and pitta bread), or snack on fattayer (deep fried pastries stuffed with cheese and spinach). Local seafood such as hamur (grouper), chanad (mackerel), beyah (mullet) are usually charcoal grilled. Local lobster and crab are particularly delicious. Sharwarmas – slivers of spit-roasted lamb or chicken, served with salad in a warmed pitta bread pouch – or felafel sandwiches are widely available.
Desserts are generally very sweet, frequently pastries filled with honey and nuts. Try Umm Ali, a delicious bread pudding with raisins and nuts. Dates, of course, are a standard staple and excellent local fruit and vegetables are increasingly on display in restaurants and shops.

Taste of Dubai 2011
Large quantities of butter for flavour and colour, a hands-on approach for preparing, testing and tasting, and tantalizingly delicious food were the common ingredients in the demonstrations by Michelin-starred celebrity chefs at the Taste of Dubai Festival. Otherwise, the range of food and the style of presentation were quite different.
The first demonstration I attended was by Vineet Bhatia from the restaurant Indego by Vineet at Grosvenor House in Dubai, Rasoi, London, and a string of restaurants across the globe. Indego’s unassuming Head Chef John Sinjobi assisted Bhatia who has two Michelin stars and is a pioneer of contemporary Indian cuisine.
The menu, herb-infused tawa chicken, beetroot upma and Punjabi kadhi, he explained, was chosen not just for its balance of flavours but also for colour: vibrant red beetroot, intense green herbed chicken and vivid yellow turmeric-flavoured kadhi. The plated food sang of India in all its tumultuous colour.
This was a relaxed open presentation from a very likeable and engaging chef who involved the audience at all times. A dozen volunteers rushed forward to help him on the podium, including children, who were obviously fascinated by the experience. Bhatia spoke about his passion for cooking and how the most important ingredient in any successful dish was love of food.
Spices must be added in a certain order, he believes – whole spices in hot oil (add a little moist ingredient quickly – such as chopped chili or minced garlic so that the spices won’t burn); next, one of the four powders that more than anything determine the colour of the food – chili powder, cumin, coriander and lastly turmeric. The aromatic garam masala mix, which has essentially been cooked already, should only be included at the very end to maximize the flavour.
Vineet added a tablespoon of butter to his semolina-based beetroot upma just before serving to give the dish a smooth silky flavour. He warned against cooking butter for too long to avoid a heavy oily finish – an aspect of traditional Indian food that is not appealing.
Like all the chefs, Bhatia encouraged using fingers to taste, check whether the food is cooked and when plating. He pointed out that raw meat when pressed with a finger will be soft like the ball of the thumb, whilst cooked meat will feel much firmer to the touch, more like the base of the third finger on the back of the hand.
Since the demonstration, I have been delving through Bhatia’s cookery book, Rasoi: New Indian Kitchen, with great delight, determined to enjoy the sensual delights within its stylish black and orange covers.
Richard Philips was a man on a personal mission, much more remote, very precise, politely demanding of his assistants, and at all times the professional chef, TV personality and owner of four restaurants in Kent. The first, Thackeray’s in Tunbridge Wells, earned him a Michellin star when he was only 29.
To be fair to Philips, he did seem to be working flat out and had just rushed over from doing a demonstration at the Miele stand. His menu was a classic one, foie gras with smoked aubergine caviar, roasted baby onions and crisp polenta. Philips insists that foie gras is now produced in a more animal-friendly manner and let’s hope that he is right.
Butter was used to great effect not so much to brown the succulent fried foie gras as it has has enough oil and flavour already, but to carmelise the onions, to cream the polenta, along with marscapone, and to give the solidified polenta cake that lovely noisette colour and flavour. Not exactly a dietary staple, this dish, but Philips did drain off excess butter on kitchen paper.
Jun Tanaka, critically acclaimed executive chef from Pearl in London, I am sure is on his own mission, but he managed to demonstrate his two classical French dishes with a disarming manner whilst effortlessly juggling numerous pots and pans. I was intrigued with his monkfish poached in spiced red wine (3 parts red wine, 1 part port, cardamom pods and black pepper) served with creamed leeks.
To check that the fish is cooked, he gently inserted a toothpick in the thickest part– this will meet with resistance if the fish is not cooked and slide through effortlessly if it is done. The fillet emerging from the poaching liquid is a gorgeous deep red on the outside, contrasting with the pearly milkiness of the flesh.
To clean the leeks, Tanaka slit them down the middle but not all the way through the bulb and held them upside down in a bowl of water. He used some of the green stem, sliced finely, rolled in flour and deep fried, as a garnish to offset the creaminess of the white bulb to which crème fraiche had been, added and ruefully admitted that he frequently burned this garnish (oil too hot).
Tanaka’s second dish was venison in saltcrust with garlic roast potatoes and creamed horseradish. Two tips here, parboil the potatoes before finishing in butter (lots of it!) and don’t season them until they have achieved that lovely golden colour, otherwise they will stick to the pan. Tanaka also recommends using fresh horseradish mixed with crème fraiche.
Since the venison was cooked in a saltcrust (a paste of flour, salt and water), Tanaka could not employ the finger test to check whether it was done, but he had cleverly put a hole in the top of the saltcrust through which he stuck a thin skewer and pressed it to his lips _– this will be warm if rare – and hot if medium rare – well-done is not in his repertoire! I am looking forward to discovering what his book, Simple to Sensational, has to offer. This was written in the wake of his TV series, ‘Cooking It’.
Gary Rhodes, the ultimate ambassador for British cuisine, needs no introduction. He is also well respresented in Dubai with restaurants such as Mezzanine at Grosvenor House and Rhodes Twenty10 at Le Royal Méridien.
He certainly drew a huge crowd and, helped by his assistant Wayne, who looked like a younger version of the maestro, he cooked the most ambitious menu. However, much had been prepared ahead and, the ultimate pro, he put on a good show without giving too much away.
Rhodes menu was influenced by a recent trip to China: warm sesame glazed duck with an orange and maple dressed salad, steamed seabass, soft spring onion potato with leeks, ginger and soy vinaigrette, and iced lemon meringue, except, of course, for the dessert, which is not a Chinese staple.
Even though I love duck I was a little underwhelmed by this dish – unlike a lot of food that I have experienced in China, there seemed to be too much going on and the addition of a barbecue sauce to the duck confit did not appeal. The sea bass on the other hand, should be very easy to do at home and looked delicious. Rhodes placed a couple of slices of ginger under the parchment-wrapped fish fillet before steaming.
Ginger strips were softened in water them and placed with the spring onion in a colander before pouring hot olive oil over the lot. The oil cooked the vegetables and a little of the infused oil was added to flavour the soy vinagrette (soya sauce, fish sauce and water).
Busily soaking up the atmosphere at the Festival and queuing for the delicious food at the numerous kiosks, I missed some other demonstrations and was particularly sad to miss out on demos by Suzanne Husseini, the Canadian/Arab cook who is causing quite a sir in this part of the world. However, I have booked my ticket for her cookery demonstration and book launch at the upcoming Literary Festival, so watch this space!
