Winter in Dubai 2023: Dubai is a fantastic destination all throughout the year, but winter season is unquestionably the busiest time of all. Overall, it is a relaxing experience because of the mild and pleasant weather (a temperature ranging from 16°C to 20°C). Additionally, Dubai has a ton of entertaining events and activities throughout the winter. For instance, the Dubai Shopping Festival offers incredible cheap offers in food, shopping, and entertainment every year from December through January. In Dubai, there is no lack of wintertime activities, and the pleasant weather makes them all possible.
1. Winter in Dubai 2023: What are the winter months?
The winter months in Dubai last from mid-December until the end of February. Temperatures are lower and the weather is more pleasant during these months. Keep in mind that this is peak season, when crowds are larger and costs might skyrocket. There is no such thing as an ideal location!
However, the months of November through December, as well as March, are excellent periods to visit Dubai. Yes, temperatures begin to increase but remain tolerable, while crowds begin to thin and costs begin to fall.
2. More attractions are opening during the winter season
Dubai Miracle Garden
It is the largest natural flower garden in the world. More than 45 million flowers may be found at Dubai Miracle Garden. This one-of-a-kind garden is around 72,000 square meters and has breathtaking patterns and a plethora of stunning flower arrangements everywhere you look. Dubai Miracle Garden is open during the winter months, making it one of the greatest destinations to visit during this period.
The Global Village offers a multicultural experience with pavilions representing different nations that offer their own traditional cuisine, clothing, and other items with entertaining live performances. Furthermore, Global Village is a favorite among Dubai's foodies. There are rows of booths selling famous street foods from all over the world. There are also rides that the entire family may enjoy.
Dubai Garden Glow
When it comes to winter activities in Dubai, Dubai Garden Glow is a must-see. There are so many attractions to see here! Starting at the Glow Park, where color, light, and imagination come together to create a magical experience for guests. Then visit the Dinosaur Park, which has over 120 animatronic dinosaurs.
Dubai Safari Park
Winter is a fantastic season to go on a wildlife expedition! The Dubai Safari Park is home to almost 2,500 different species. Camels, lions, elephants, giraffes, bears, and many other species from around the world can be found here. The park, which spans 119 hectares, is separated into zones that include the African rainforest, the Arabian desert, the Asian jungle, and others.
3. Explore circuses and outdoor cinemas
On weekends, Bluewaters Island offers outdoor movies during the evening, so bring your tub of popcorn and curl up on a beanbag to watch classics like Mamma Mia and The Greatest Showman, or take your kids to see Trolls or Encanto. The event is free to attend, but arrive early to ensure a good viewing area.
Jumeirah Beach Residence also provides a variety of exciting and free events for the entire family. From movie night under the stars every Friday and Saturday to roving entertainment and special themed programs, including a Christmas Circus. Enjoy live music performances by saxophonists, percussionists, drummers, violinists, and others.
4. The Dubai Shopping Festival
It's by far the finest time of year to buy things at deep discounts and low costs. So, make a list of everything you are planning to buy (though you'll definitely get much more) and prepare to pamper your inner shopaholic. Grab a deal, see live music, or win big at the raffles - this seven-week citywide festival just grows larger and better with each year starting from mid-December to January.
5. Perfect Beach Time
La Mer is a white-sand beach with a boardwalk that's ideal for an evening stroll. As the name suggests, Kite Beach is the go-to beach for sports in general. Kitesurfing in particular.
Jumeirah Open Beach is ideal for families, as it is quite clean and has cool stuff such as a public library with beanie bags where you can rest and catch up on your beach reading!
Sunset Beach, directly close to the Burj Al Arab and with views of the Burj Khalifa, is popular among surfers. The JBR Beach is popular with both locals and visitors since it is the closest public beach to the Marina which is near to the restaurants and shopping, and has spectacular sunsets.
