Highlights of the Golden City of Dubai in May

With the essence of Ramadan in the air, the month of may is perfect to visit Dubai thanks to the lesser crowds. The weather, however, is not the best and outdoor activities will be quite limited. The better part is that hotel rates will be at the cheapest during this time due to the blast month of the off-peak season. The temperatures in May can be quite hot. The highest temperature during the day is about 40 ° Celsius while the lowest touches just about 26 ° Celsius. May barely sees any rainfall in the city with the weather being extremely dry.
