The best time to visit Dubai is during the winter months, from November to April. January and February see heavy tourist traffic because of the Dubai Shopping Festival, which makes the city come alive. Here’s a monthly breakup of Dubai’s climatic conditions so you can plan when to go:
November to March: Dubai winters are from November to April and this is the best time to visit. The weather is pleasant and suited for all kinds of outdoor activities. What’s more, the much loved Dubai Shopping Festival is held during January-February and that is when you will see Dubaicrowded. Since this is the peak season, hotel rates and airfares tend to go really high. Book well in advance to get the best rates possible and avoid any inconvenience.
April to October: The temperatures begin to rise by April and May and during peak summers, even start hitting the late forties. Summer months in Dubai are really hot and humid, making it almost impossible to explore the outdoors. However, all malls/stores are air-conditioned and you can indulge in as much retail therapy as you would like. Dubai is not crowded at this time, and the air-fares are generally cheaper.
