Have you considered visiting Dubai in summer?

You'll save money on your Dubai summer holiday, as this is low season for tourists. Whilst it’s true that in summer Dubai sees temperatures soar skyscraper-high, you’ll actually find that the city is well prepared for the heat. Sunset is the ideal time for a beach stroll and a dip in the warm sea. Plus, whatever the season, the desert is always cool at night.
