7 Things to Do in Dubai Over The Long Eid Al Adha Weekend 2021

Eid Al Adha is right around the corner, and we all can’t wait for the 6-day vacation Dubai will be blessed with during the week starting Jul 19. It is a holy festival that encourages generosity to the less fortunate and serves as a reminder of humanity’s commitment to defeating evil.

Eid is the perfect opportunity to step away from your busy schedule and spend time with your loved ones doing whatever suits your mood. What makes Eid celebration in Dubai even better are the endless deals offered by restaurants, retail shops, and hotels during this holy occasion.

There are several ways to celebrate the long weekend in Dubai, here are our recommendations
