When planning your trip to Dubai, it is important that you know the type of weather you will be exposed to. Its type of climate belongs to the arid subtropical, therefore, the temperatures in the place are quite high, they can even reach 42 degrees Celsius, being the nights a little cooler.

Winter is definitely the best time in terms of climate, as temperatures are cooler and the environment remains drier avoiding high levels of humidity.

The heat felt in Dubai is generally too stifling for people to enjoy the outdoors mainly during the summer months, with the exception of pools that even have cooling systems to prevent you from feeling like you’re in a jacuzzi. In addition, sandstorms are very frequent in March and April, but despite this, they can happen every time the wind starts to get stronger.
Although it is a little complicated to establish the best date to make the trip to Dubai, since this will depend on your heat tolerance and even sand, because sandstorms will always be present, you should know that the best time to travel to the place are the months that go from December to March, because it is the best time to travel quietly and enjoy all the comforts that the place gives you without getting too hot. In these months you can also enjoy many different and interesting festivities that will allow you to enjoy all the wonders that Dubai have to offer, the city will be full of tourists and enjoy all the benefits of visiting a true intercultural epicenter.

Apart from the weather, one should also take into account before making a visit to Dubai, Ramadan, a cultural event in which the dates may change each year depending entirely on the Islamic calendar. Without a doubt, this is a fascinating period in Dubai, but you must bear in mind that this culture is very respectful of their beliefs and for this reason, you may encounter a number of limitations mainly in the hours of shops and restaurants, as the Ramadan implies a fairly restricted schedule. Generally, the dates of this event are between August and July, which also includes the hottest months of the year.
