Dubai's currency is the Dirham, referred to as either the Dh, or the AED (the United Arab Emirates Dirham). 100 fils = 1 Dh. Notes come in denominations from 5 to 1000 Dhs.
Dubai is blisteringly hot in summer, with temperatures from June-September ranging from 30 to 40 degrees Centigrade. Cooler, and better by far, are the months from September to May, ranging from 20°C-25°C, but nights can get cold in winter. Rainfall is rare, with winter having the most precipitation, although it's hardly ever what you'd call a downpour.
