ESCAPE TO DUBAI
Dubai is a stirring alchemy of profound traditions and ambitious futuristic vision wrapped into starkly evocative desert splendour.
Dubai is known for luxury shopping, ultramodern architecture and a lively nightlife scene. Burj Khalifa, an 830m-tall tower, dominates the skyscraper-filled skyline. At its foot lies Dubai Fountain, with jets and lights choreographed to music. On artificial islands just offshore is Atlantis, The Palm, a resort with water and marine-animal parks.

Best Time to visit Dubai
The best time to visit Dubai is from November to March. Weather-wise, Dubai really only experiences two seasons: hot and hotter.
During the winter months, the city sees blue skies and primo beach weather. However, this is also peak tourist season, so expect plenty of company on Jumeirah Beach. You can escape the crowds if you visit during the summer months, but be prepared for triple-digit temps and high humidity levels.
Daily highs range from the upper 70s to the low 80s, making Dubai's winter season the perfect time to sprawl out along the Persian Gulf's pearly white sands. But you won't be alone: Sun-seekers from around the globe flock to Dubai to take advantage of the emirate's desirable weather, so you should plan on making hotel reservations months in advance to ensure availability. Beach bums should also note that January to March is Dubai's rainy season. You can expect a few drops here and there, but showers are short-lived.

It shouldn't surprise you that Dubai bids adieu to its tourists during the summer months. During this time of year, highs are in the 100s, and although rainfall is scarce, humidity levels often rest around 90 percent or higher. Weather like this makes any outdoor activity – including a day at the beach – unbearable. To protect yourself from heat stroke, avoid spending too much time outside (especially mid-day), wear plenty of sunscreen and drink lots of water. The good news is that you won't have to worry about finding a spare hotel room. Prices will generally be lower than they are during the high season, but not by a significant amount.
