Best Time to Visit United Arab Emirates

The Middle East carries two very distinct seasons, summer and winter. As a hot desert climate, this destination offers year-round high temperatures, with the best time to visit the UAE landing between October and April. December to February tend to find themselves as the most popular months for visitors due to comfortable temperatures of between 17-25⁰C, while the summer months see temperatures soar up to 40⁰C. June to August are months we recommenced avoiding travel to this part of the world unless you can stand the sweltering desert heat.

Best time to visit

Expect uninterrupted blues skies and sunshine most of the time in the UAE and with very little rain making an appearance. The warm temperatures during the winter months make it the perfect place for multi-generational families with younger children especially when visiting the mandatory attractions and water parks. If you are travelling there during these months, be sure to pack some light layers as the temperature can drop a few degrees during the evenings. Stopping off en-route to the Maldives or Mauritius? Fear not, the seasonality for each of the destinations works hand in hand to ensure you experience the very best of the combined weather patterns, making the UAE the ideal spot to spend a couple of days enjoying the vast array of things on offer, before moving onwards to island time.
