What to Wear in Dubai During April?
April in Dubai starts to get hot but not as hot as the mid-summer months.
Dress for warm to hot weather but also expect comfortable evenings and nighttime temperatures.
Wear clothing that covers your shoulders and your knees. Do not wear clothes that are too tight or too revealing for both men and women.
Women can wear long dresses, tops, shirts, t-shirts, pants, and jeans.
It's best to avoid wearing any sleeveless shirts, sleeveless dresses, mini-skirts, and short shorts.
For trips near water or in the desert at night, make sure to pack a pair of long pants/long skirt.
Things to Do in Dubai in April
The weather should be nice and warm this month, so it might be a good time to consider taking a pay-what-you-wish Dubai walking tour.
April is also the month of Ramadan, so if you celebrate this holiday, you might want to consider making preparations for special activities or meals.
If you manage to visit on an especially warm day, you might want to consider a cruise around Dubai.
Alternatively, there are also some great waterparks in Dubai such as Aquaventure and LEGOLAND Waterpark.
