The alternative is coming between May and September when humidity peaks at 95%, temperatures stay above 100F (38C) for days on end, and spending much time outside means risking a heat stroke.

Dubai is a great vacation spot for travelers of all kinds! If you're on a budget, it's very affordable. If you're looking for luxury, you'll be able to find that too. There are things to do for shoppers like the world renowned malls and souks. Adventure seekers can skydive, ride ATVs in the dunes, or spend that day at a race track or theme parks. Foodies can find some of the best chefs and restaurants in the world in Dubai. Even families well have more than enough to do here to make visiting a worthwhile choice. From water parks, to theme parks, both kids and parents will enjoy Dubai.
