Best Time to Visit Dubai
The United Arab Emirates is located in the Arabian Peninsula, an arid, desert landscape covered mostly by the Arabian Desert. As such, its highly unsurprising that temperatures in Dubai vary between hot, hotter and hottest. Tourists are advised to avoid visiting the city in the searing heat and humidity of the summer months from April to October, as temperatures can soar as high as 41 °C. Winter, taking place from November to March, is a much more pleasant season. Temperatures seldom go above 23-25°C during the day and drop to a cool 12 °C at night.
Things to do in Dubai
Though not the capital of the United Arab Emirates, Dubai is a city of superlatives - its home to the world’s largest airport terminal, tallest building, largest choreographed fountain system, biggest fireworks display, most luxurious hotel, largest mall and many, many other man-made marvels. Known for stunningly extravagant luxury as well as amazing architectural feats, Dubai is one of the world’s fastest-growing cities and usually succeeds in blowing tourists’ minds away with its over-the-top decadence. The Burj Khalifa, for example, is simultaneously the tallest building and most luxurious hotel in the world, standing at a towering 163 stories tall.
