Best time to visit Dubai?

Hi guys,
I would like to know what's the best time to visit dubai? I know the winter time would be better in terms of tempeature. But how about the weather that is good for photography? like high visibility, clear blue sky etc.
Is there sand storm in Dubai usually?
Which month is the non-peak travel season usually? (so that the hotel and airline ticket are cheaper)

Thanks guys.

dubaiflo, isn't photography means it has to have good sun lights? so why do you pick winter for photography and april for sun?


it looks like March to April would be the best time for high visibility and great blue sky. So how about sand storm? does it happen in Dubai? if yes, when?

One thing you need to know about the weather here .. Unpredictable!

I would suggest February, but prices aren't going to be down

if accommodation is not an issue,
come during christmas into the new year.
weather is great. students off for the holidays. lots of events and streetlife.
easily the best time of the year.

otherwise even ramadan is really fun in the evenings. some people get half days, iftars and tents set up throughout the city. very lively time

lastly, the shopping festival is also a good time.

worst time = probably the summer months. manypeople leave the country. but the plus side is that hotels are cheaper then
