There are not much things to dislike when visiting the UAE as a tourist, to be honest. Prior to settling here, I visited UAE as a tourist and saw the country with a tourist mindset and I would say, I really liked the country. However, there are quite a number of things tourists would dislike when coming to the country, and that would highly correlate to WHEN they will come to the country.

One of the most obvious downside of the UAE is that it is a country in a desert, which means IT IS HOT. And not just Florida hot, I am talking SAUNA hot. Yes, the kind of hot that after 5 minutes of walking, you will suffocated. The kind of humidity that sometimes it’s so hot, your body cannot sweat because it dries it up. I have seen backpackers coming to Dubai on July and man, they complain it’s hot. Of course it’s hot, it’s summer for Christ’s sake. Prices are down the drain from June - September because it is summer and for that reason, nobody wants to walk around and see the sights. So to save you all that hassle, come during November - March, that way, weather is as cool as California spring

I think tourists may feel uncomfortable with the men staring at them, especially Indians and Pakistanis. When I came to the UAE, I was very mindful to wear conservative clothes because I knew it was a Muslim country. Yes, it is okay to wear sexy garments in Dubai and Abu Dhabi, but when you will visit conservative emirates such as Sharjah and Al Ain, there is a possibility you will get fined, so better research before packing your things and coming here.

You know December is the most heavily touristed month in the UAE, especially Dubai and Abu Dhabi. December packs a lot of activities such as UAE National Day and the grand New Years Fireworks followed by January which is Shopping Festival Month. And because of this, prices are HIGH. Literally, hotels will be disgustingly expensive. AirBNB is not yet a good option here for the lack of options, and even AirBNB is expensive. I`ve come back from Dubai recently  and I`m really impressed. I`d like to recommend everyone visiting UAE smth very exciting. Something that you would never meet in US or Europe. There is a special service in UAE that provide unique experiences and wow gifts https://www.wowgifts.ae/ I am a lucky one who has already had such experience

It is an interesting question. It seems to me that the reasons can be different. For example, I do not like hot countries. I can not stand the heat. I like to visit the cold countries. Finland was the last country I visited. It was wonderful. There are many interesting things there. I discovered a new kind of relaxation there. This is a Finnish sauna. This really relaxes. I installed an outdoor sauna http://sdsaustralia.com in my yard. It helps me to rest from work and forget my problems.
