Best Time to Travel to Dubai

dubai, weather, tourism

A vacation trip to Dubai points towards sun, sand, beach and shopping. The best time to visit is during its cooler months i.e. in between November and April when the hot sun is at rest and weather is cool with blowing winds during the evenings and night time. Even if you visit the city during the rest of the months you will find the air-conditioned hotels, malls and other complexes well-equipped to easily keep you off the heat.

By and large, the tourist season boosts up in between November and April when the temperatures are in between 24-35ºC (75-95ºF), keeping the evenings warm and nights chill. Months of November, December, January and February observe gentle wind where the mercury goes down almost up to 13ºC (55.5ºF). Likewise, you may experience some rainfall if you visit the city somewhere between December and March. The temperature tends to rise up till 30ºC (86ºF) by April that indicates the onset of approaching hot season-May onwards.

A trip to the beautiful tourist place Dubai may be avoided for a holiday especially during the month of Ramadan, when the strict rules of the Islamic religion are applicable against smoking, drinking and eating and staying outside for long hours. As a consequence, the rates of almost all the hotels drop down up to 70% during this time where you are requested to follow the rules of the festival. If you want to eat during the daytime then you are requested to eat somewhere indoors or else to close the windows of the restaurants and cafes while having food.

Though religious beliefs and sentiments are attached here, it equally spoils the total enjoyment involved, where you really find difficult to relax at length which is the sole purpose of your journey to the city. But great discount sales at almost all malls are on during Ramadan. Similarly, avoid the period between June and September. Though the air-conditioned buildings keep off the heat, you would not be able to enjoy much of the outdoor activities except for the nightlife. Desert Safari Dubai, Camping and Camel riding would be a bit difficult to get pleasure from, where sunbathing or playing at the beach can be revered in between April and October where the temperatures rise up to 45ºC or even beyond.

If you are looking for some altogether different experience, then go in for private fishing trips or deep fishing trips. You can also enjoy a romantic dinner on dhow cruise at Dubai marina which gives panoramic views of Dubai at night.

Still, you can make your holiday remarkable where you can catch Dubai Camel Racing. It is held every Thursday and Friday somewhere in between October to April at the Nad Al Sheba racetrack while Rugby Sevens is hosted in December. The best period to shop in Dubai is from January to March where the famous Dubai Shopping Festival runs for around 4 weeks.

Dubai is no doubt best place to visit. You can enjoy rich culture of Dubai
I am planning to visit Dubai with my family in Second week of July. I have visited some websites and most of them are not advising to visit during this period as the weather will be very hot. please advise me if whether it will be good or not to visit.
@Abdul, Dubai in July will be hot, basically it's the humidity that's the killer. Hotels room, buses, taxis, malls all are air conditioned, so don't think you will feel uncomfy. Visit desert in the evening or early morning. The beaches will be uncomfortable so avoid beaches during daytime.

Really cool post! I have a question. I read about ramadan night market in the beginning of June and now I'm curious: is the weather at night is such unbearably hot in Dubai? Cause warns that there is a possibility to get fried. And are those markets crowded btw? Thanx
Good, best time to travel to Dubai, which is helpful for anyone who reads this will certainly feel happy because this will really help those who will travel to Dubai later on, I will also use this as a guide when I will come to Dubai.
I'm planning to visit Dubai by the end of June 2018, is it advisable coz I have 2 kids with me, we r looking more for kids activities like legoland, Ferrari park and safari. Is the weather so unbearable?
@Noor, It will be too hot in June and July. The hotels, malls, taxis, indoor tourists attractions are air-conditioned. You can plan desert safari ride late evening / early morning. If you are travelling with two kids, don't think you'd be planning to do much walking around the city. It is advisable to choose indoor activities in Legoland and Ferrari park. I'm sure you'll enjoy your vacation, despite the heat!

I went to Dubai few weeks ago. I did not worry that much on the heat because the resort we have chosen, has private pools and best accommodations. Al Habtoor Polo Resort gave me an amazing and cool experience. Me and my friends enjoy their villa deals for AED 2500 on weekdays.
Awesome post I might want to thank you for the endeavors you have made in composing this intriguing and educated article.

Honestly, June is not a bad month to visit Dubai, the weather is pretty much like May, except it is about 5% hotter. Best time to visit the beach and go dive in the swimming pool, especially watching the sunset at around 7PM, is the best time ending the beach journey. It's July and August where the weather gets truly unbearable. September is like June, except it is more humid.
Great post. Glad to read this one. Thanks and keep sharing!
Great Post also enjoy buggy tours in dubai
