Visiting Dubai in the Spring

by Travelbag on 25 September 2015, 10:09AM

If you wish to escape the UK’s dreary weather and jet off to somewhere hot on holiday, then Dubai could be the perfect destination this spring. Temperatures will be in the high twenties in the day time and in the high teens in the evenings.
It’s a city bursting with life – there’s so much to see and do. Everything about Dubai is luxurious, so it’s the perfect place to recharge your batteries and enjoy being pampered.  The city’s architecture is out-of-this-world and you’ll be spoilt for choice when it comes to choosing your hotel.


Something for everyone

Dubai caters for every kind of holidaymaker and it’s a place where dreams come true. Temperatures might be soaring outside, but you can enjoy a skate around an ice rink or go for a ski on the world’s biggest indoor ski slopes, if you fancy cooling off. If you’re into adventure and like to try new things,  you could soar over Dubai in a Cessna 208 Caravan Seaplane, admiring the pinnacle of the tallest building in the world, the Burj Khalifa. Or launch yourself from a plane and sky dive over the Palm Jumeirah, or in the nearby desert – the decision is yours.

Time to go exploring

Dubai is world-famous for its shopping malls and boutiques, but they shouldn’t be the only things you explore during your stay. If you can, you really should experience the views from the top observation deck in the Burj Khalifa. Thankfully, you won’t have to use the stairs to get there, instead enjoy a  high-speed lift ride as you ascend 450 metres to the top. The views are simply breath-taking.

Spring is the perfect time to visit the desert too. You could take a tour, stay in the Dubai Desert Conservation Reserve or enjoy a traditional Emirati falconry display… there are so many options available. During your holiday it’s good to explore not only the modern aspects of Dubai, but the more traditional and historical aspects too. Why not plan to visit a museum or art gallery during your trip?


Special events

There’s so much to see and do in Dubai that you’ll be spoilt for choice. If you can’t fit everything in don’t worry, you can always book another holiday to Dubai in the future.


There are a number of special events happening in Dubai in spring 2016, so we’ve decided to showcase our favourites below:

The Dubai Food Festival runs for seventeen days from 25th February  to 12th March 2016. It is a must for foodie fans.
