Rain in Dubai.

With only 15 days of rain in Dubai per year on average, finding an umbrella is nearly impossible.

After getting soaked the last time the heavens opened, we searched high and low to find one – and here are our top tips for where to buy…

– Head to Japanese Gadget Store Daiso to take your pick from three different types of umbrella (from 7 to 20 AED). At this price, it won’t break the bank and will justify the only occasional use. We spotted them in Oasis Center, but they are also available in other branches across UAE.

– The Brits are no strangers to rain, so it’s little surprise that we found umbrellas in British department store Marks & Spencer. At 110 AED, the umbrellas are available in Mall of the Emirates and Dubai Mall.

– Fashionistas should hot-foot it to Caroline Herrera, where we spotted umbrellas from 500 AED at the Dubai Mall  branch and MOE.

-For something quirky head over to Jumeirah Town Centre and pick up a fun retro print umbrella from Little Luxuries for 180 AED.
