Best time to go
Visit Dubai between October to April for the best weather. Although you can expect the occasional shower, it is still mostly sunny, hot and fantastic weather for the beach. This is the peak period for tourists so book at least three months in advance. From May to September the temperatures are oppressively hot and the humidity can make outdoor activities uncomfortable.
Travelling during Ramadan is a fascinating time to visit if you're interested in Islam, but if you are planning to indulge in Dubai's restaurants and bars Ramadan can curb your options.
