Dubai is extremely hot during the summer months (Jun-Sep). However, it is warm and dry during the winter months (Oct-Apr). This is one of the main reasons as to why tourists from the Northern hemisphere visit the Arabs during the winter months. December is the ideal month to visit Dubai and to experience some fun activities and festivities. Read on to know more about Dubai in December.

Dubai Weather In December

Dubai is hot and sunny throughout the year. This is mainly due to the dry desert climate. The temperatures do not fluctuate much even during winters. Usually, the temperatures during winter fall to a minimum of 15°C to 16°C at night. However, during the daytime, it reaches 26°C to 30°C. It is this tropical climate that has made Dubai, a paradise for those who love summers.

During winters the sun is out for at least for  8-10 hours during the day; the humidity is low and it is highly suggested that you carry a water bottle with you all time. The atmosphere becomes more soothing as soon as the sun sets down. Roaming around and exploring the city at night is much better than doing it in the day.

Desert Safari is a must-do activity when in Dubai. Visit the vast expanse of the Arabian desert and enjoy various activities such as sand bashing, sandboarding, quad bikes, camel rides, etc. You also have an opportunity to stay overnight in Bedouin tents and enjoy the traditional music, belly dance and the local cuisine.

What To Wear In Dubai In December

Pack light clothes if you are planning to visit Dubai in December. As we already saw, Dubai has warm and dry weather during the month of December and so I would suggest you go light. While packing also keeps in mind the restrictions on dress code in Dubai. It is important that you pack long dresses, tops, skirts, pants, hoodies, etc.  For women, make sure that the clothing isn’t tight or see-through. Also don’t forget to carry your sunglasses, sunscreen and hats.
