Reasons why you should celebrate Christmas in Dubai: Christmas Celebration in Dubai

It might feel awkward when we say Christmas celebration in a Muslim country like UAE, but Dubai has a mixed diversity of people where people from different countries stay together harmoniously. Above that, Dubai is an ultimate vacation destination & yacht stay & yachting have taken the limelight of Dubai tourism.
Since people from all over the world come over to Dubai, Christmas & New Year are the two most celebrated events across the globe. During the last month of the year & the last days of the year, it’s all festive around the country. Dubai is a happening place, no doubt in it.
Well, the perk of travelling to Dubai during winters would also be great, as the temperature is pleasant as compared to other times of the year, the unbearable heat of Dubai makes it impossible to plan anything during the daytime.
Now, that you know you have chosen a great time to visit Dubai, let’s discuss what are the entertainment options you have in your bag! Here it goes….

Swapna Author at Champion Yachts Love to travel and find interesting facts about the places I visit, be it the historic facts or the latest innovation in the city, it excites me the most. Being a student of literature adds more to my hobby of traveling & getting in-depth to know the place in & out. Might find me in a historic fort reading & listening to the tales of dynasty or partying in the sassiest hotel of the city!
