The Top Places to Visit in Dubai in October
Thanks to a cosmopolitan nature, Dubai lends itself to luxurious city living and is the perfect destination for an October city vacation. In October, the weather is perfect for outdoor activities and sightseeing or a dip in the sea just when the temperatures are cooling down. So, pack some light clothing and sun protection because there's a lot to see.
The tallest building in the world, the Burj Khalifa, is the gem in the skyline of Dubai, rising majestically into the sky for all to see. The building regularly hosts firework displays on special days throughout the year, including Guy Fawkes festival in October.
During the sunny days of October, get ready for a shopping spree. The Dubai Mall stretches over 3.77 million square feet and comprises over 1,300 outlet stores. Shop anything you can think of from household goods to high-class fashion.
Some days in Dubai are hotter than others, so when the mercury rises, head to an indoor ski arena. Chill out in a sub-zero climate as you slide, ski, and create snowmen in this incredible indoor sport arena.
