Although Dubai is a fantastic destination all throughout the year, winter is unquestionably the busiest season to visit. Overall, it is a comfortable experience because of the pleasant temperatures- seldom rainy too. Additionally, there are a ton of entertaining events and activities to take part in during Dubai’s mild winter; there is no shortage of ways to make the season fun and exciting.
To start off, the Expo City Dubai has transformed into a Christmas-themed area named Winter City, after its immense success with the World Cup-related fan city. The huts and pine trees here have evolved into a Christmas market until the first week of January 2023. In addition to gingerbread, wreath, and ornament-making workshops, jumping, sliding, climbing, and zip-lining activities, there will also be a toy factory that customizes teddy bears. What could be more delightful than turning on the Christmas lights? If you’d like to witness the lighting of Winter City, put Friday, December 9 in your calendar.

Dubai International Film Festival
The Dubai International Film Festival (DIFF), which happens every December and January, will be hosted in Dubai, as it has been through many years. The festival showcases movies from all over the world, and it’s a fantastic chance to watch some of the newest and best films. Additionally, there are masterclasses and workshops where you can discover more about the movie business and industry.
Another popular event in Dubai is the Dubai Marathon. It almost always takes place in January, but this time it is set to take place mid-February of 2023 and it’s a wonderful chance to see some of the city’s most stunning structures. The Burj Khalifa, the tallest structure in the world, can be seen from the marathon route as it passes through downtown Dubai. A half marathon and a 10-kilometre race are also prepared to offer.
Dress in light and comfortable clothing and enjoy your pleasant winter to the fullest!
