Best time to Visit Dubai

From its glittering skyscrapers to its sweeping sand dunes, this multi-cultural metropolis is as awe-worthy as ever. Once a small fishing village, Dubai has emerged recently as a truly cosmopolitan city. The best time to visit Dubai is during the winter months. January and February see heavy tourist traffic because of the Dubai Shopping Festival, which makes the city come alive.

In Dubai, winters are from November to April and this is the best time to take the Dubai trip. The weather is pleasant and suited for all kinds of outdoor activities. The Dubai Shopping Festival is held during January-February and that is when you can call it the peak season.

Sun-seekers from around the globe flock to Dubai to take advantage of the emirate's desirable weather, so you should plan on making hotel reservations months in advance to ensure availability and avoid any inconveniences during the visit. Beach lovers should also note that January to March is Dubai's rainy season. You can expect a few drops here and there, but showers are short-lived.

The temperatures begin to rise by April and May and during peak summers, even starts hitting the late forties. Summer months in Dubai are really hot and humid, making it almost impossible to explore the outdoors. However, all malls and buildings are air-conditioned and you can indulge in as much retail therapy as you would like. You can escape the crowds if you visit during the summer months, and being off season, you can avail great discounts on stays and sights.
