Few other travelers
Though Dubai is a large city, and not one that is often empty, you’re not likely to encounter a lot of tourists in the summer months. Lines which would stretch around the block in high season (November through March) are greatly reduced, as expats and even locals depart Dubai for trips elsewhere. The introverts among us will enjoy the quieter tourist attractions; extroverts will appreciate the opportunities to make new social networks with little distraction (or competition); and lastly, shoppers will notice merchants who are more eager to negotiate prices (and boost sales).
Best of all, summer in Dubai means two things: lower prices and better value for your dirham.
This may be the best legacy of the summer heat. Unlike other international destinations, summer is the low season in Dubai–which translates to steep discounts and fantastic value added offers. Research from hotel booking website Agoda reveals that summer (April through October) is the most affordable time for Dubai hotels.
Hotels that go for $300 a night are slashed to around $150 in July, a discount of around 50%. That means you can stay twice as long for just as much money.
The point is that summer is the least trafficked season of all–and all business, from five-star hotels to giant, sprawling shopping malls–slash their prices. Some, like hoteliers eager for business, will even throw in a range of otherwise pricey amenities, such as comprehensive spa treatments, luxurious massages, or even upgrades to more luxurious (and unoccupied) rooms.
