With Eid Al Adha just around the corner, residents are looking at another long weekend next week. 

If binging Netflix or locking yourself up with books for six days is your plan, we’re not going to judge. In fact, we’ll be the first to tell you there’s nothing wrong with that. But if you’re looking for other stuff to do outside, this one’s for you. 

Whether you’re looking for a quick getaway, a staycation, or some one-off to-dos, here are some ideas.


It’s never too late to pack your bags and travel to a quarantine-free destination. For budget-conscious travelers and holiday agencies, low-cost airlines are going big on their offers so you can travel without breaking the bank. From Azerbaijan to Zanzibar, snag one today before they run out.

flydubai – Traveling somewhere doesn’t have to cost a fortune, especially if you know where to look. Check out flydubai’s holiday packages here. From AED 2,113, inclusive of flights, hotels, transfers and tours.

If you simply just want a change of scenery without the need to browse through sites to get those elusive rates, you can never go wrong with pampering yourself in a holiday home. You get all the perks of living in an actual home, have the whole apartment or house to yourself, and not worry about crowds.
