Best Time of Year to go to Dubai
Dubai is very very hot all year round, with summer months reaching highs of over 40 degrees it’s best of sticking to the ‘winter season’ for a more enjoyable heat. Dubai’s winter starts in November and finishes the end of March, yet temperatures still range between 20 and 30 degrees a much more tolerable heat for those of us used to the typical English summer. Also if you enjoy food then avoid going in October, it’s when Ramadan takes place and tourists are expected to take part in the fasting!
