If you are waiting for the perfect weather to visit Dubai then don’t wait for further updates from the weather portals, just pack your bags. One of my old friends, a Dubai resident since long, invited me to his city, knowing that I avoid moving out in hot weather and Dubai climate remains warm most of the year, he advised me to visit there in winter months.
Do whatever you like – indoor or outdoor
I went there in the end of September, however, I spent few weeks there observed that temperature starts dropping in last week of October and better days become most obvious every week. So I advise fellows, of my type, not to go there before November, rather, try to be there between November and March. It’s the best period to enjoy wandering throughout all Emirates of UAE and not only the Dubai megapolis and its suburbs. Tourists get attracted to Dubai during these months because the temperature usually remains between 25° – 28°C. Its best time for all types of activities, whether indoor or outdoor. Days are little warm with sunny skies while the nights are cool. Otherwise, if ever landed there in summer, you would prefer to remain confined in your apartment and office while your common activity with your friends would be watching movies at the weekend. Perhaps, a person like me would wait and prefer to go for grocery at night only.
November – Sky is the limit
In fact, in metros like Dubai activities keep on going throughout the year in routine but, in November, it’s time for the things to gain momentum. The first place I visited was Dubai Marina because, though I am not fond of yachting, it was my wish to see yachts, of every type & size, moored over there and it was not too far from my place of stay. It is exactly the same as it gets promoted, the largest man-made marina in the world surrounded by a number of luxurious hotels, restaurants, and cafes. You may charter a yacht in Dubai Marina and go for cruise. This November, the news is there that all is set for the celebrity Jennifer Lopez to be live in Dubai on 17th November at the Dubai Autism Arena. So you can expect a night full of glamour, dancing and singing with the global pop star.
For those who are visiting Dubai these days have a great opportunity to enjoy the great Dubai Air Show, one of the biggest airshows of the aviation industry, which is taking place during 12th November to 16th November.
December – New Year’s cheer is there
New Year is the most widely celebrated event across the world but that of Dubai is considered and remains as the grand. The eve of December 31, is the time when gatherings here are at its peak. One of the most significant events of New Year’s over there is the spectacular fireworks that take place at Burj Khalifa, the tallest building in the world. For my Scandinavian fellows or those who miss the snowfall back at their home could enjoy at Ski-Dubai till their vacations get finally scheduled. Apart from the ski slopes, it’s a snow park full of fun-packed activities with rides and other attractions the whole family.
Dubai Shopping Festival – gets extended
Dubai Shopping Festival which usually gets launched in January every year but there is a little change in schedule. Now it is set to commence in December 2017 while it would get concluded in January 2018, last for almost one month. Although the event seems to attract the shoppers from around the globe its activities do not remain limited to shopping only, rather you will find activities of all sorts are in full swing. It’s the time when every mall of Dubai is filled with lots of offers and promotions for everyone.
