Dubai, one of the seven United Arab Emirates, is a popular holiday destination for travellers from all over the world. Just a 7 hour flight from the UK, thousands of Brits each year descend on the Arabian desert resort to take advantage of the hot and dry desert climate.
June in Dubai is, without a doubt, hot. Temperatures reach about 38 degrees in the hottest part of the day, with overnight temperatures rarely dropping below 26 degrees Celsius. The desert location means there’s very little rainfall, and visitors during June are unlikely to see any at all. However, the humidity reaches extreme levels in June so travellers may become damp and uncomfortable in the heat.
The month of June is characterized by constant daily high temperatures with the possibility of temperatures exceeding 43°C! However, on very rare occasions temperatures can drop below 24°C, but still expect to see temperatures reach around 39°C.

Things to do
Visitors should book an afternoon adventure with Desert Safari Dubai. The tour takes guests over the sand dunes in a 4x4 (known as dune bashing) before visiting a camel farm and then onto the safari camp. Here, there’s something for everyone, whether it be henna tattoo art, belly dancing or sand boarding. Unlimited soft drinks and a BBQ buffet are included, as well as return transportation across the dunes.
To keep cool in June why not visit Ski Dubai. This extraordinary amusement park is the first ski resort to be built in the Middle East and offers an unforgettable snow setting to enjoy a variety of winter sports including skiing, snowboarding and tobogganing. The construction covers a staggering 22,500 square meters covered by real snow and offers five runs varying in difficultly, height and steepness.
However, if you want to experience the real culture and history of Dubai make sure to visit the Jumeriah Mosque. This beautiful building is the only mosque in Dubai open to the public six days a week, excluding Fridays. The Jumeriah Mosque offers a unique opportunity to learn about Emirati culture and religion, in a relaxed and casual atmosphere. Modest dress is preferred or traditional attire can be borrowed from the mosque.
To cool off after an afternoon in the hot desert sun, jump on an abra for a trip around Dubai. The abra is a traditional Arabic method of water transportation and crosses the Dubai Creek, linking Bur Dubai on one side to Deira on the other. The trips across the creek take just 5 to 7 minutes, so for a relaxing time and some great photo opportunities, try out both routes.
