• Best Time to Come to Dubai: November to March. Most people prefer the temperate days of "winter," and this is when the bulk of outdoor activities and special events take place.
  • Best Season in Dubai: Dubai Shopping Festival. As long as you don't mind crowds, Dubai Shopping Festival is a thrilling time to visit the city, with people from around the world and special events taking place day and night for 3 weeks from January to February.
  • Best Sports Event: Dubai World Cup. The world's richest horse race, at the end of March, is the culmination of a 9-week horse racing festival and brings in celebrities and jetsetters from around the globe.
  • Best Thing to Do in Summer: Stay Inside. With extreme humidity and temperatures routinely more than 100°F (38°C), summer is too hot and sticky to be outside. This is the perfect time to visit the malls, and Dubai Summer Surprises is a 10-week festival starting in mid-June offering deeply discounted hotel, restaurant, and store prices, as well as children's entertainment and educational activities.
