Vacationing in Dubai: the guide

Dubai is one of the most popular cities today. The mythical names of the city such as Burj Khalifa and many others make more than one dream. So, if some have decided to settle there, others, on the other hand, would just like to stay there for a while. But what to do and how to plan your vacation in Dubai ?


When to go to Dubai?

One of the great advantages of the city of Dubai is that it is always hot there. Therefore, if you want to go there in the middle of summer, we strongly advise against it. Summer is surely the worst season to go to Dubai, because during this period, the temperature can reach up to 50 ° C.

If you want to spend your vacation in Dubai , it would be best to go there in winter: between November and March. During this period, temperatures vary from 25 to 30 ° C during the day and from 15 to 18 ° C at night. Anyway, if you can handle the heat well, you can go there very well during the summer.

If you’re not free in winter or already have tons of stuff planned, April, May, and October are also a good compromise. During these times, the temperature varies from 30 to 35 ° C. Which can be more or less bearable.

What budget should you plan to go to Dubai?

If you’ve finally decided to go, you must ask yourself the ultimate question: How much should I budget for my vacation in Dubai ? This is a question worth asking given Dubai’s reputation for cost of living. So how much should you have in your pocket to be able to travel to this city in the United Arab Emirates?

The two main sources of expense while traveling to Dubai are airfare and accommodation. The prices of these vary according to the season and the standard of the hotel. In high season, the plane ticket should cost between 400 and 500 euros and the room between 100 and 500 euros per night.

As for the activities, transport and meals, they can be negotiated according to your wishes and needs. For meals, for example, you can choose to cook at home (if you opt for accommodation with a kitchen) or opt for a mid-range restaurant to reduce your budget.

What are the activities to do in Dubai?

There are a thousand and one activities that can be done in Dubai. You can, in particular, admire the beauty of the city at the top of the Burj Khalifa or take an excursion in the desert. Going to the Burj Khalifa is a must activity especially if you are visiting the city for the first time. At the top of this huge skyscraper, the city and all the buildings will seem so small to you.

As for the excursion in the desert , it is also an activity not to be missed. During this excursion, you can surf in the dunes, take a camel ride, go on a quad bike ride, etc. You can even end your day there with a barbecue dinner.

Finally, one of the most famous activities in Dubai is: Ski Dubai . It is an indoor ski resort that offers the possibility for people to ski even in the middle of the desert. Located in the Dubai Mall , Ski Dubai also offers you the possibility of doing other complementary activities such as ziplining above the ski slopes or even activities with penguins.

As you will have understood, spending your vacation in Dubai can be interesting if and only if you choose the right time to go and the right activities according to your budget, your desires, but also your physical condition.

Also, you must ask yourself for what reasons you want to take this vacation. If you want to sightsee, experience a new culture and experience new out of the ordinary, Dubai could be well worth it.
