Best Time to Visit Dubai
October to April are the best months, with November to February being the pick for those looking for a Dubai honeymoon or wedding. It is exceptionally hot from May to September and is probably not the best time to head there if you plan to sport a bridal gown whilst you're there!
For Activity Lovers
Visitors can choose from a plethora of water sports in the warm Gulf Sea and championship level golf courses, or for something a little different try sandboarding. Dubai also boasts one of the world’s largest, and best, indoor ski-slopes.
Jumeirah Beach is perhaps the pick, although there are a number of others to choose from. The multiple parks in Dubai provide a welcome alternative to the beach and are well looked after and rightly popular with locals and tourists alike.
Local Flavours of Dubai
Cosmopolitan and multi-cultural, Dubai boasts a vast array of foods from around the world. Local cuisine tends to be of the Lebanese variety and meze’s are popular (small dishes comprising food such as houmous, tabbouleh and falafel).
