Is there an affordable season to shop in Dubai?

Young, fun and under budget. My budget is $3000 USD and would like to stay for a week.  When is the most affordable season to shop and stay in Dubai?

    The trick about Dubai is not when you go, but where you go. You can get great deals in places like Al Karama or Al Fahidi Street Dubai but you have to bargain and really look.

    Summer is definitely less expensive to stay, but can be unbearably hot. if you are looking to score some unique stuff, head to the souks. if you are looking more for shopping, the malls are extensive and plentiful!

    Dubai Shopping Festival which takes place in January, and Dubai Summer Surprises (which will take place from July 23 - September 5 this year) are great times to shop as malls across the city have fantastic promotions.

    Many other tourist destinations, hotels etc. also have special discounts at this time of year and there are plenty of free events and activities staged across the city so you can do a lot more for less.

    It is pretty hot in summer (well into the 40s) but if you plan on spending most of your time in the malls - and you won't struggle to find stuff to do in them - then it's generally fine :)

    January is the best time to head to the city if you also want to shop in the more traditional areas such as the souqs and Al Karama as it is cooler and you can get the best of the festival shopping deals and the pleasant weather.

    The best time to shop in Dubai is around the Dubai Shopping Festival which usually takes place in Jan and lasts for a month. Almost all outlets in malls across the city have discounts and special offers available during this time - however you might find hotels more expensive.

    Jan/Feb is almost the most pleasant time to visit Dubai because it's winter time here where the temperature is about 17-18 degrees.

    Have fun and hope you enjoy everything the city has to offer!Dubai

    I would recommend not to travel during Muslim holidays as hotels and such will be pretty booked up.

    most famous time would be during the Dubai Shopping Festival which is in January February each year for a period of 30 odd days. exact days will be published in the internet. One of the main reason for this festival to be so famous I would say is due to the comfortable weather during the beginning of the year. As for shopping I would not say that the prices are less but you do get more "bundle offers" and the total value will definitely be a bargain. Ex if you want to buy a good DSLR camera, during this time you get bundle offers with latest models along with lens kits, accessories such as tripods, carry bags, memory sticks etc for a very reasonable bargain rate. So if you really need all the accessories in offer then definitely that's the time to do shopping in Dubai. Accommodation during this period might not be the lowest but you do get plenty of options since Dubai focuses on these festivals a lot, you will be ale to find a suitable accommodation package fitting your budget.

    Visit during the Dubai Shopping Festival in January (http://www.mydsf.ae/en). Book early for hotels since it's usually the busiest time.

    I went during the first of July and it was the off season. Although it wasn't cheap by any means, the hotels were definitely not full. I was told that the summer is the best time to go due to the high temperatures and humidity levels. The locals all flock to Europe to get away from the heat. Enjoy!
