Dubai Travel Tips


Best time to visit DUBAI

When it comes to Dubai, there are only two seasons (hot and hotter), making it an excellent destination if your goal is to escape winter. The best time to visit Dubai is between September - May, and it is an excellent choice if you're looking for the perfect New Year's Eve destination. You can escape the crowds if you visit during the summer months (June - August) but beware of triple-digit temperatures during the day. 


Next, it is also essential to keep in mind that you may want to avoid visiting Dubai during Ramadan. During Ramadan, business hours are shorter, and the nightlife scene and other activities may be much quieter than usual. The dates for Ramadan vary since it follows the lunar calendar so check your calendar before you book that ridiculously cheap deal that you found on someone dot com.

Whether you're looking for the ideal destination for your next birthday trip, girls trip, guys trip, family vacation, or wellness retreat, Dubai is one destination where everyone will be happy they came. As a vacation destination, Dubai easily tops other tourist cities thanks to its gorgeous beaches, luxury lifestyle, impressive skyline, lifestyle, beach clubs, culinary scene, and the plethora of larger-than-life attractions.
