It’s all about timing. To avoid crowds and inflated prices, we recommend the period between high and low seasons when the weather is fine, places are still open and happy to welcome travelers, and you can explore a destination at your own pace. ShermansTravel experts call this magical time and space continuum the Sweet Spot.

When to go to Dubai

Peak Season: November to May

Temperatures in Dubai are ideal just after summer and up until late spring. Hotels are generally filled to capacity at this time, so it’s best to book far in advance.

Off Season: June to September

Temperatures easily soar beyond 105 degrees during the summer months, making visits here unbearable. For those on a budget, though, hotels offer great deals at this time, and you can see the city’s glitziest attractions in air-conditioned splendor.

Sweet Spot: September to October

The holy Muslim holiday of Ramadan can be uncomfortable for non-observant travelers as it is illegal to drink, smoke, or eat in public until the “break fast” (iftar) ceremony. Some restaurants operate during the day behind curtains or tinted windows. Exact dates of Ramadan vary from year to year – in 2008 it occurs throughout the month of September; in 2009 it takes place from August 21st to September 19th.
