You may want to plan your visit to Dubai for the winter

Dubai is known for its blistering climate and high humidity, making summers quite unbearable.

However, according to US News, tourists flock to the sunny city in the winter so make sure to make reservations ahead of time.

Make sure to monitor advisories and visa status before your trip.

You can fly into the Dubai International Airport or the newer Al Maktoum International Airport

There are a handful of airports you can fly through, but the Dubai International Airport (DXB) is the primary one.

According to Visit Dubai, the DXB has been the main gateway to the emirates since the first airstrip was developed in the 1960s. Here, you can use Smart Gates to fast-track your airport experience.

You can use the red and green lines from the Dubai Metro to get from the DXB through the busier parts of the city. You'll just need to buy a Nol card or a single-use ticket to hop on and off the transportation system, but keep in mind you're only allowed to carry two luggages per patron.

You can also take a bus or use a taxi from the Dubai Transport Corporation to get there, but check the Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) for more information. Driving in is also an option, considering there are parking spaces in all three terminals.

According to Dubai's government, all passengers traveling from any point of origin must provide a negative COVID‑19 RT‑PCR test certificate, so make sure to take one and have it ready before your departure.
