When to visit

If you're planning a holiday in Dubai, our top picks for the best time to travel would be February, June, October and December

February

While the summer months push 50 degrees in Dubai, the winter months offer the perfect temperature for those looking for guaranteed sun and heat at an otherwise grey and cold time of year.

June

June is a great month to sample the glitz and glamour of Dubai before the summer heat becomes overwhelming

October

As Europe begins the decent into winter, Dubai remains HOT throughout October. With a relatively small time difference and a manageable flight time, Dubai can make a perfect October half-term getaway

December

A shopping mecca, palace-like malls offer huge discounts and special promotions during December's Shopping Festival. Also milder weather and New Year's celebrations to rival the best in the world
