It’s time to get planning as there is a five-day holiday weekend coming up in Dubai early next month.
And after the year we’ve all had, this is just the news we need!
The five day weekend falls from Tuesday, December 1 until Sunday, December 5.
Tuesday, December 1 is Commemoration Day which pays tribute to the men and women who have sacrificed their lives to defend the UAE.
December 2 and 3 are part of the UAE National Day celebrations. The 49th National Day celebrations are to mark the day all seven Emirates came together as the UAE. And if you’ve been here before, you’ll know it’s a big celebration, with fireworks, parades and events.
Make the most of the long weekend
If, like us, you want to make the most of the long holiday weekend, we definitely recommend trying out this amazing new glamping park near Abu Dhabi. And by glamping, we mean luxury domes with AC and even a telescope!
Abu Dhabi’s Jebal Hafit desert park near Al Ain is the perfect place to enjoy the perfect weather right now. Especially, if like some of the DubaiLAD team, you think camping is a bit basic, the glamping aspect should seal the deal. Especially when it comes with a stunning tent, AC and a telescope to explore the night sky.
As well as the AC-domes you can also book overnight stays in sci-fi pods or traditional Bedouin-inspired tents. Or you can even pick your own plot and bring your own tent for the night.
