Eid Al Fitr 2017 – Things to do in UAE


Happy Eid! We are all happy to enjoy a few days off, but the small problem is sometimes trying to decide what to do during the Eid Al Fitr holidays if you have decided to spend it in the UAE and not travel to cooler climates. Yes traffic will be less but malls will be very crowded with people rushing to make the best of Eid promotions across the UAE or visit Dubai from other Emirates, especially those waiting for the amazing electronics deals to buy electronics in Dubai. The humidity may be rising and we know you are trying to escape the busy crush of malls but the UAE is still one of the most beautiful countries full of SO many things to do where you can still have a good time with your family and friends.


Visit the movies and enjoy the latest attractions. Make it a movie with dinner since all theatres offer a delicious selection of food in addition to many popcorn flavors. Calories don’t count, plus some great movies have been released just in time to enjoy your Eid even more, the new Transformers is out!
