The long Eid break is around the corner and it seems like as though everyone is traveling. Well, actually, everyone is. But staying back in Dubai isn’t that bad. Honestly! Here’s why and how you can make the most of it.
The roads are empty
Need to hit the shopping mall, head to the other emirates or visit an area that’s usually crowded? Traffic and parking are most likely going to be the least of your worries. If you’re still worried about mall traffic, we suggest going earlier in the afternoon.
Visit your favourite attraction during the day!
Haven’t been to Warner Bros World Abu Dhabi, Old Dubai, or Dubai Parks and Resorts as yet? You can spend the entire day there, and still have plenty of other days to relax and unwind. Besides, again, you can avoid the crowds if you head down there first thing in the morning.
Walk down Al Seef
Kim’s Singapore Seafood has just opened at Al Seef – review coming soon! If you just watched Crazy Rich Asians and going through major #Fomo, head down to this eatery packed with character for Singaporean chilli crab, Kim’s fried hokkien prawn mee, and barbecue sambal squid. Location: Unit P2-12-05, Al Seef, Umm Hurair. Contact: +9714 370 8288.
Head out for a meal
You know how you never have time to check out a new cafe, breakfast spot, or dining venue? Now you do. We highly recommend downloading the Entertainer app (the free trial offers 2 free redemptions) and the SunSational Summer app for deals at all Meraas developments. P.S. the latter offers 2for1 on AdventureHQ rentals 0f bikes, kayaks, SUP and more, apart from offers at F&B venues at The Beach, City Walk and La Mer. Need help picking a venue to dine at? Try Pierre’s Bistro, Miss Lily’s or Ramusake.
See? Staying back in Dubai for Eid isn’t that bad after all. Besides, you can always book in a staycation, fly out in a month or two when airline prices are down.
