Do you find yourself wishing for an extra day off because two isn’t enough? Well, you’re in luck this week because we’re in for another long weekend, and we cannot brace ourselves.
As a celebration for Al Hijri New Year, which fell on August 9,Happy New Hijri Year to all our Muslim friends, the UAE has declared an official holiday on August 12, giving its people a three-day weekend.
Dubai is bursting to the seams with interesting locations to visit and fascinating things to do and you probably didn’t get to accomplish all you wanted to do over the Eid holiday. This weekend is your chance to continue your exploration of Dubai and all its delights.
To help you with that, we have compiled a list of three things to do in Dubai during the long weekend:
Enjoy a Lux Get-away:
If you are one that craves a change of atmosphere and a new backdrop to your extravagant plans, aka travel, but three days don’t seem worth the airplane ride, worry no more as Dubai, and other emirates, are home to the world’s fanciest and activity-filled resorts that will make you feel like you’ve left the country! Indulge in the lap of luxury and revel in the lavish experience that will make you feel like royalty.
Watch Dubai from the skies above:
There is nothing more exhilarating and breathtaking than to free fall at 120 mph through the skies of Dubai and watch the emirate from a bird’s eye view. Skydiving in Dubai is a must-do for anybody looking for a once-in-a-lifetime sensation and an out-of-this-world thrill that will send adrenaline running through your veins. Don’t worry, you’ll be fastened in a harness and led by a professional world-class instructor so you can relax and enjoy the ride.
Explore Banksy’s controversial street art:
While the secret remains a mystery, and his identity is still anonymous, Banksy is now in Dubai, and people are lining up to watch his one-of-a-kind controversial street art.
For the first time, the world’s largest Banksy exhibition has arrived in the United Arab Emirates, and it is being hosted at Mall of the Emirates. In this all-new immersive and unique exhibition, discover the world through the eyes of Banksy with 120 famous art pieces scattered throughout a gallery of over 1,000 sqm. The long weekend is the perfect opportunity to visit this unique exhibition and immerse yourself in an experience like never before.
