And there will be sunshine for 12 hours overall.

What Makes It Worth Visiting Dubai In June?

  • Super Affordability: Come to Dubai any part of the year – you’ll find accommodation for every pocket. But when you visit Dubai in June, you can bag a plusher stay in a dream setting at a rate that you never imagined. And the same goes for other aspects of your holiday, such as airline tickets, sightseeing, etc.
  • Experience the Fewest Crowds: Visiting Dubai in the summer is perfect for those who dread frantic crowd interaction and traffic. Yes, you’ll see some of Dubai’s most iconic sights (otherwise packed) at their tranquil best in June.
  • Shop in Comfort with Maximum Savings: DSF (Dubai Shopping Festival) is considered one of Dubai’s best shopping times. While it’s true, shopping in the summer months, too, has its share of benefits, with exclusive deals and unbelievable discounts attached to the majority of your favorite merchandise. And you can enjoy relaxed shopping with almost all outlets, including the most premium being less packed this month.

A must-experience on any Dubai trip is Palm Jumeirah – the legendary palm-tree-shaped man-made island.

But with this brand-new point standpoint at the Palm Tower, you can take in this view in its true grandeur, and that too for a fraction of the cost.
