Although Arabic is the official language and legal documents must be written in or translated into Arabic, English is widely spoken and understood. Due to the diverse nature of the population a number of other languages are also spoken, like Hindi and Urdu. Visitors who have never travelled to the Gulf may find the weather difficult to handle, as during the summer months the temperatures remain above 40°C. Travellers are advised to remain indoors during the summer months or to go out during the night.
