Peak season

Sunseekers needing a vitamin D top up should book cheap flights to Dubai for a short break or stopover enroute to their final destination. In terms of beach weather, this desert city has two seasons, hot and hotter. Blue skies and sunshine abide all year round, and the temperature hovers around a balmy 25C in the peak tourist season November to March. But expect to bump elbows on Jumeirah Beach, Dubai’s desirable weather attracts visitors from all over the world during this period. The Christmas holiday period and the short time after it are when prices are at their highest. Flights to Dubai are easy to come by since this is the hub for National Carrier Emirates which has flight routes all over the world, and is a popular stopover for Kiwis travelling to Europe. Book flight tickets and accommodation well in advance and keep an eye out for Emirates flight sales.
