It’s turning Winter in Dubai. This means that more and more people are going out during the day. It won’t be that hot anymore unlike the summer season which was unbearable.
During the summer months, I could hear people complaining about the weather in Dubai all the time. Good thing that the Metro station is just walking distance from where I live. It’s not as hard to find shelter and a cooler transportation is just nearby. I can only imagine my colleagues who have to wait in order to get a bus ride to the office. Even if there are cooling shelters, the point that you have to wait at least 15 minutes for the next bus does not suit very well for me.
Tourists in Dubai Winter Season
Anyway, the winter season is also a time for tourists from all over the world to flock Dubai. This city in the Middle East has become a fast-booming tourist destination with plenty of attractions that this Emirate can offer. From the highest building in the world (Burj Khalifa) to the only seven-star luxury hotel in the world (Burj Al Arab). There are historical sites in Deira creek and Aqua resorts like Wild Wadi or Atlantis The Palm. Indoor skiing in Mall of the Emirates for the adventurous or even Sky Diving by Sky Dubai for the extremes.
Although it’s not as grand as getting holiday packages in beach resorts or as natural as going to forest-treks, the thought that the city was once made of bare sand is already a remarkable feature in itself.
The winter season will also house many sales from different brands; the Dubai Shopping Festival is the shopping sale promo that comes to mind. Prices will go down on commodities and items and Dubai malls will be full of people again.
DEWA Expenses Lowered
As for me who does not have much money to burn during these Dubai Shopping festivals, the change of weather is already something to look forward to. Most especially when we don’t have to use the air conditioning in the apartment flat that I’m renting. Hopefully the price of our DEWA (Dubai Electricity and Water Authority) will drop.
