Best Time to Travel to Dubai

A vacation trip to Dubai indicates sun, sand, beach and shopping. The best time to go to the scorching hot city is during its cooler months i.e. in between November and April, when the hot sun is at a bit rest and cool winds are blowing in the evenings and night time. Even if you go during the rest of the months, the air-conditioned hotels, malls and other complexes are well-equipped to keep off the heat. Avoid visiting Dubai for a holiday that involves lots of shopping, dinning and fun during the months of Ramadan when the strict rules of Islam are applied against smoking, drinking and eating.
The tourist season boosts up in between November and April when the temperatures are in between 24-35 ºC keeping the evenings warm and nights cool. November, December, January and February observe cool evenings with temperature going down till 13 ºC. Also, you can enjoy the rain if you tend to visit the city somewhere in between December and March. By April, the temperature tends to rise up till 30 ºC indicating the onset of hotter season that is to come in May.
The months in between June and September should be avoided if planned for an enjoying vacation. Though the air-conditioned buildings keep off the heat, you would not be able to glee much of the outdoor activities, except for the nightlife. Desert Safaris, Camping and Camel riding would be a bit difficult to enjoy, whereas sun bathing or playing at the beach can be revered in between April and October with the temperatures going up till 40 ºC.

Ramadan is observed according to Islamic calendar. Muslims fast for a month during this time and the festival is strictly followed all over UAE. Though the rates of almost all the hotels drop down up to 70% during this time, you are requested to follow the rules of the festival by avoiding smoking, drinking and eating in public places during the day time. If you want to eat during the day time then you are requested to eat somewhere indoors or else to close the windows of the restaurants and cafes while having food.

To make your holiday a bit more interesting try catching up the Dubai Camel Racing is also a worth watch and is held every Thursday and Friday somewhere in between October to April at the Nad Al Sheba racetrack and the Dubai Rugby Sevens is hosted in December. If you love to shop then you can plan your vacation somewhere in between January to March to grab on the Dubai Shopping Festival that runs for around 4 weeks.
