I am planning my summer vacation to the UK and this year i want to do a 4 or 5 day stop in either Dubai or Istanbul. I will be traveling with my 7year old daughter. My plan is to either stop in the last week of July before heading to the UK or last week in August when coming back from the UK.
My first choice is Dubai but as my family friends were there in August last year with their two kids and complained bitterly about the heat ( even though you would expect Nigerians to adapt being that Nigeria is also hot, around 30 degrees) and also that most food shops were closed because of Ramadan and they couldn't buy food except for the kids, i am thinking maybe i do Turkey - UK and go to Dubai sometimes later.
I know a lot of people here have visited both countries around that time, can you kindly advise? I am not particular about shopping as i would shop in the UK, i want to go out and do touristy stuff, so i don't want to spend all my time in the malls. If i decide to visit Dubai, do i visit last week July or last week August? Thanks
