Dubai in March – vacationer photos
I discovered a new country for rest – Dubai at the end of March. I was satisfied with the trip. I had a chance to swim in the bay, to see the sights, to go shopping, to try the local delicacies.
End of March. Weather in Dubai.
After arriving in the wonderland, I realized that my vacation was a success. The sky was cloudless, the sun was warmed up to +30 rays, the wind was light and pleasantly fresh. The weather was getting more comfortable with each passing day. It was especially felt in the evening. By the end of the holiday I could walk freely in a light sweater. As for the water temperature, at most it rose to +24 degrees. Long time in the water is difficult to spend, but it’s comfortable to dive.
What to see in the country
I consider the spring month ideal for visiting excursions. The sun does not heat up to the point of unconsciousness, you can quietly stroll through the streets, looking at the interesting things. I enjoyed walking around:
- Dubai Venice;
- the malls;
- the water park;
- going up the Burj Khalifa;
- Watching the sea animals at the aquarium;
- watch fountain shows.
I recommend seeing the show of the singing fountains during the day and in the evening. At different times of day it is interesting in its own way.
How to dress in March
You can’t go on vacation without pants, comfortable dress or jacket. The evenings are cool and windy. After 6 p.m. I always wanted to dress up. I recommend taking:
- semi-closed shoes.
It is better to take smart but understated clothes to Dubai. The UAE is a country of luxury, glamour. Therefore on the streets it is almost impossible to meet tourists in tracksuits, in slippers on his feet.
I had a great vacation in March. I appreciated the moderate amount of holidaymakers. I do not like: the jam, crowded beaches, overcrowded hotels.
To all a good mood and discover new horizons.
Hello, dear travelers! I visited Dubai four years ago, from March 8 to 14. My dream was a relaxing beach holiday and nothing more. However, only after seeing how beautiful Dubai is I understood that it will not do without excursions)).
On a beach went through day. And all day long it was not very hot – up to +30С. And in the morning even cool. Water is warm enough – approximately +23 C, however, almost all the time waves. Once, when I went to the observation deck of the Burj Khalifa, there was a mini sandstorm. That would have been fine, but the views are not the same, the city seems to be in a haze.
March is the month when you can rent a bike and ride around the city without the heat. Of course, you should first apply sunscreen to exposed skin and stock up on drinking water.
We went to Dubai 4 years ago, from March 24 to 30. For some reason we were afraid that it would be cool, but the weather pleased us. During the first 3 days the temperature was +30C, then it got hotter and hotter, and on the day of departure the thermometer read +40C. We easily walked around the city, went on excursions, though we always took water with us. It’s amazing how in such a hot weather the local women wear closed black robes, and jeans peeking out from under the hem! Of course, we did not wear T-shirts and mini-shorts, as it is a Muslim country. But even in a T-shirt and linen breeches it was kind of hot.
We spent four days on the beach, got a tan and had a good swim. For me personally, the water was not very comfortable (about +24C), but I generally heat-loving creature, and my feelings – not an indicator)))
Hi)) A trip to Dubai has always been something so inaccessible to me. But as it turned out, the trip to this city gave me and my husband on our wedding day, our parents. The trip fell exactly on March. Now I want to share with you the impressions of the trip and describe all the interesting moments.
After a long vacation in Dubai, I realized that the weather in March here is very variable – now it rains, now it’s sunny. As the locals told me, such weather conditions vary not only from year to year, but also during the month. We arrived there in the middle of the month and stayed until the end of March, and I would say for sure that the temperature was getting higher and higher every day. If at the beginning of the vacation my husband and I observed 27 degrees above zero during the day, then at the end of the vacation it was even 32 degrees above zero. In mid-March at night the temperature reached 17 degrees above zero, and already at the end it was 22 degrees. It is considerably warmer. I did not notice a strong wind, and the humidity was normal, there was no stuffiness. As for the water, it seemed to me that in Dubai it never dropped below 20 degrees (this trend is observed throughout the year, which is a big plus for trips to Dubai, the water in the Persian Gulf is never cold)))). So don’t worry, you will safely swim in the water at a comfortable temperature.
Remember that the sand on the beach in Dubai can get very hot, so wear flip flops to avoid getting burned. I can tell you from experience that it is not a very pleasant feeling. Also, don’t forget the searing sun, sunscreen and a panama hat were always in my bag. It is also worth remembering that there are sandstorms in Dubai, which often start in the spring. After the storm, the city is covered with a layer of sand. The danger is the lack of visibility on the roads, so it is not recommended to travel by car during this period. But do not worry and cancel your vacation in Dubai because of this, because a lot of shelters are built in the city.
What to take with you on vacation
Despite the heat in Dubai during the day, I also took with me warm clothes. I came in handy with a warm sweater on my trip during my evening walks in the middle of March. If you are planning to go there at the beginning of March or in the middle of March, you should definitely take it with you. If at the end, you can do without warm clothes. But you will always need warm clothes during excursions to the desert, because it is very cold there at night, in early spring – just above freezing. Also, as I noted and above, the weather here changes frequently, there is a high probability of precipitation, so definitely put an umbrella in your bag.
Be very careful on the beach, quite often I saw jellyfish on the beach. Also when traveling in the desert be careful with the walks, you can encounter scorpions.
It is in March that the active holiday season begins, because the weather conditions become comfortable for recreation. On the beaches a lot of holidaymakers, in the city – too, excursion programs are scheduled, so you need to book in advance.
When my husband and I arrived in Dubai in March, we realized how lucky we were. After all, it is during this spring month that a number of very interesting events take place here. I can say with confidence that most of the vacationers I saw came to Dubai not only for the purpose of resort recreation, but also to participate in a number of interesting events. One of them, where I was lucky enough to visit, was the Taste of Dubai gastronomic festival, which brings together restaurants of the city with a high level of service and delicious cuisine. The essence of it is the following – all food and drinks representatives of the restaurants exhibit on the platform, located in the amphitheatre of Dubai Media City business center. Everyone can try and assess the incredibly delicious dishes. My husband and I also visited the Art Dubai art fair where artists, photographers and sculptors living in the UAE exhibited their work. In March of the same year the World Golf Championships are held in Dubai, because there are many golf courses in the city, and the weather conditions allow practicing golf both day and night. Dubai in general is the Far Eastern capital of the sport. In March, the Nad Al Sheba Park in Dubai also hosts the World Cup of Horse Racing. What my husband and I were surprised by was the prize money, which goes beyond $12000000. To be there, you have to buy your ticket in advance. Also prepare for the dress code – for men it’s a tuxedo, for women it’s a dress and hats.
There is a lot of exotic food in Dubai – various fruits and vegetables. In the stores they sell everything your soul desires. However, there are fruits that I tasted for the first time – dragonfruit, mangosteen and longongon. In the restaurants it is worth trying real kebab and the legendary biryani, a dish of basmati rice, meat and spices.
