Tip #4

Visiting Dubai in the Summer Season

Visiting Dubai during the summer season can be both an exhilarating and challenging experience. The city’s scorching summer months, which typically span from June to September, are characterized by extreme heat and high humidity levels. During this time, temperatures can soar well above 40 degrees Celsius (104 degrees Fahrenheit), making outdoor activities and sightseeing in the daytime quite daunting. However, Dubai has found ingenious ways to combat the heat, with many of its attractions, shopping malls, and entertainment options offering respite in the form of air-conditioned comfort.

One of the highlights of a summer visit to Dubai is the opportunity to indulge in the city’s luxurious indoor experiences. You can explore the opulent shopping malls like the Mall of the Emirates and The Dubai Mall, where you can not only shop for world-renowned brands but also enjoy a variety of entertainment options, including indoor skiing, ice skating, and even an underwater aquarium. And of course, being folloed by your personal Dubai photographer.

Additionally, Dubai’s vibrant food scene comes alive in the summer, with a plethora of restaurants offering diverse culinary experiences. You can savor international cuisine in stylish, climate-controlled settings, making dining a delightful escape from the heat.

Another unique summer experience in Dubai is the chance to take advantage of reduced prices on accommodations and attractions. Many hotels and resorts offer attractive deals during the summer months to attract visitors (just imagine the most luxurious photo session there). Plus, you can explore Dubai’s beautiful beaches and waterparks in the evenings when the temperatures are cooler (just like our client Mai with her private Dubai photographer below).

While summer in Dubai may require strategic planning to beat the heat, it can also offer an opportunity to enjoy the city’s extravagance with fewer crowds and more budget-friendly options. Overall, a trip to Dubai in the summer can be an adventure of contrasts, where you can immerse yourself in luxury, innovation, and cultural diversity while navigating the city’s warm embrace.
