New Year in Dubai is celebrated with the traditional sweep, peculiar to this city. The weather conditions are quite warm for winter and contribute to a great time. So, during the day the air temperature can reach 24-28 degrees, which is more than comfortable for walking and sightseeing.
At night the thermometer column may fall to 10-13 degrees, so going to the New Year in Dubai, don’t forget to take warm clothes. The water temperature in late December does not rise above 24 degrees, but it scares not all tourists. In contrast to the warm-hearted locals, many guests of the UAE from Europe are not afraid of a dip in the waters of the Persian Gulf on the eve of the New Year celebrations. For those tourists who like warm water, there are numerous swimming pools with heating elements.
Unfortunately, unlike other months, December and January may see heavy rains in Dubai. However, they are very rarely prolonged, so tourists do not have to make serious adjustments to the excursion programs and plans for the evening. The disadvantages of the Emirates during the New Year holidays may include the likelihood of sandstorms.
However, these disadvantages are fully compensated by the cultural program, which offers a city on the eve of the beloved holiday. If we talk about the meeting of the New Year, it could be the most memorable in your life. Well, when else can you start a new calendar cycle, for example, in the desert during a safari? Dubai offers such an opportunity! The only thing, choosing such an extreme version of the celebration, do not forget about the warm clothes. After all, in the desert, the temperature at night drops to virtually zero.
Weather in Dubai for the New Year
If you do not want to leave civilization for the New Year, you can visit the unique Global Village complex, which offers a lot of concerts and entertainment programs. Around midnight tens of thousands of people gather at the Burj Khalifa Tower, dreaming to see one of the most beautiful fireworks in the world. It is interesting that the tower itself at midnight turns into a huge burning Christmas candle and it is a phenomenal spectacle!
The main disadvantage of Dubai on New Year’s Eve is that the city is incredibly crowded. Therefore it is very problematic to buy tickets for any shows or excursions, and to book a hotel is not always possible, even in early December. Naturally, before the New Year considerably increases and prices for accommodation in Dubai, as well as food and all kinds of services. This, of course, is worth considering for domestic tourists, going to the UAE at the end of December.
