  • With temperatures of 30 degrees perfectly normal for November, Dubai holidays at this time of year are a superb winter sun option. You can also couple a winter sun escape in Dubai with a Christmas shopping trip. Despite this being a Muslim country, there are Christmas events throughout the run up to the big day, with Christmas Markets and the Atlantis Festive Village amongst the options.
  • Outside of the school holidays is, of course, the better time for bagging cheap holiday deals to Dubai and you can expect prices to rise when the schools break up for Christmas. But November and early December can be wonderful times of year for sunshine and relaxation here.
  • “It’s starting to feel really wintery this time of year in the UK and the dark nights are well and truly with us. But not in Dubai! Temperatures here often reach the thirties and you can expect 9 hours of sunshine each day. What a great Winter Sun option.”

What to do in Dubai Expert

  • Shopping in Dubai

    For those whose holidays are not complete without a spot of retail therapy, Dubai has you covered. A shopper’s paradise, Dubai offers upmarket shopping centres and traditional souks alike. So if you like designer labels and brand shopping, head for the malls and designer shopping areas. On the other hand, for a traditional taste of shopping in Dubai, the souks and markets will be right up your street.

    With an offering of over 500 international shops ranging from lifestyle and fashion, to sports, electrics and furnishings, you can definitely shop ‘til you drop in Dubai. Choose between The Dubai Mall, the largest and most-visited retail and entertainment destination in the world; the Mall of the Emirates, bursting with designer brands and home to the one-of-a-kind, Ski Dubai; the Gold Souk where you can try your hand at haggling for a bargain; or enjoy the extensive duty-free offering at Jebel Ali.

    Discover six distinctive themes in The Dubai Mall, inspired by Andalusia, Tunisia, Egypt, Persia, India and China. The whole family will be wowed by the choice of shops (which even includes a Debenhams), dining outlets and entertainment options. Far from your average shopping mall, The Dubai Mall also houses SEGA Republic, an indoor theme park, as well as the world-class Dubai Aquarium & Underwater Zoo, and an Olympic-sized ice rink; it’s one shopping trip where the kids won’t want to be left at home. And, after filling your shopping bags, the Burj Khalifa awaits next door, ready to leave you speechless with spectacular views over the Dubai skyline.

    “Dubai is paradise for shoppers. Mall of the Emirates boasts hundreds of shops, restaurants and bars, while the city’s souks offer you a chance to put your finest haggling skills to the test in the hunt for traditional bargains.”

    • Dubai’s most famous Souk

    • Located in Deira

    No sunshine holiday is complete without a waterpark trip and Dubai spoils holidaymakers in this department. Our favourite options include Aquaventure Waterpark, Wild Wadi, and the brand new LEGOLAND® waterpark at Dubai Parks and Resorts.

    Whether you’re holidaying as a couple, a group of friends or a family, these attractions will have something for you. There are quiet rides for those who’d just like to cool off calmly, while the adrenalin junkies can brave some of the most terrifying water slides around.

    Venture beneath the waves on a Shark Safari in Aquaventure Waterpark, take on the Wipeout Flowrider at Wild Wadi Waterpark to get your heart racing, or build your very own LEGO® raft at LEGOLAND® waterpark. The options are endless when it comes to having fun in Dubai’s fantastic choice of waterparks. There’s plenty of places for the adults to relax too, while the children enjoy their adventures; sunbathing areas, lazy rivers and paddling pools all provide a slightly quieter way to tackle the waterparks. Jump in, splash around and take advantage of Dubai’s great waterparks for the ultimate fun-filled holiday in the sun.

    “It’s always water park weather in Dubai, so whatever time of year you choose to go on holiday, you can always find a perfect day for a trip to one of these water parks for a fun filled way to soak up the sun (and cool off too)!”
