Almost surreal in its high-rise glory, travel to Dubai for shopping, partying, fun in the sun, and fine dining. Experience a taste of luxury for your Dubai honeymoon in this United Emirates showpiece that has it all, but come armed with plenty of ‘plastic money’ and a determination to enjoy yourself in a true Arabian pleasure dome.
An awe-inspiring beach orientated metropolis that’s as mesmerising in its scale as it is in its beauty. With the tallest man made construction in the world thanks to the Burj Khalifa, Dubai is a city that certainly does not do things in halves. But with stunning beaches, guaranteed sun, and a swathe of world class hotels and restaurants at your disposal, it’s not hard to see why Dubai is a resort that people continue to return to year on year.
About the climate:
Dubai has a tropical desert climate, and in summer temperatures can reach as high as 50 degrees Celsius. Thankfully in the winter the temperature drops to a comparatively cool average of 25 degrees Celsius. Just try not to go in summer time!
December – March: The hottest month in Dubai, which can reach up to 40 degrees Celsius, is August. But you’re looking for the months that are best for a Dubai honeymoon, which have sunny weather but aren’t too extreme – then December, January, February and March are great options. If it’s sunshine you’re after, then Dubai is a wonderful choice. For couples thinking of visiting in February, this is the month with the highest average rainfall, so it may be worth avoiding this month if you don’t want a rainy honeymoon!
April, October & November: A great time to visit Dubai is just before or after the hottest months, which can reach up to 40 degrees which puts some tourists off. So, April, October and November are very popular choices of months for couples who want a romantic honeymoon where they will be guaranteed the perfect weather. Temperatures in these months will still be high, often reaching 32 degrees with 10 hours of sunshine in a day!
About the culture:
Dubai is very much a forward facing, modern city, but they still respect and are rooted in their Islamic traditions. Westerners are naturally expected to be respectful of the local’s Islamic faith, and they are equally respectful in turn. Dubai is also one of the safest cities in the world, despite its party-boy image.
What we love:
The spotless beaches and guaranteed winter sunshine. Bliss.
Take me there!
