Malapit na namang mag-Eid holidays, kabayan! It is expected to start on 31st August and last until the 3rd September (dates may vary). Damang-dama mo na ba ang nalalapit na pahinga marathon?
Marami sa atin, best in planning kapag Eid, June palang may naka-plot na ang long weekend bakasyon. Pero, unfortunately, not everybody has the luxury of time and resources to do so. Marami rin sa atin ang hindi na masyadong napag-tutuunan ng pansin ang mga ganitong bagay.
If you are one of us who will be staying home during the Eid break sa maraming dahilan (walang budget; overbooked na ang mga hotels; wala nang time to plan), well here are some things you can do around Dubai—for FREE!
Get that sun-kissed tan on the beach!
Ang ikinaganda dito sa Dubai, maraming public beaches na pwedeng puntahan. Whether you feel like taking a dip or you just want to hang out with your friends—go beach-bumming!
Ang trendy beach na puntahan ng marami ngayon ay ang Kite Beach, which is very hip and features a lot of activities.
Temperatures are still a bit high, but the heat is slowly dropping every day. Hopefully it gets a little less hot during the break! Whatever you do on the beach, don’t forget to wear your sunscreen!
Meditate, join a therapy session.
If you find yourself all stressed-out, at feeling mo hindi na kaya ng pahinga ang mga worries mo—perhaps it’s time to look for other avenues to relax. Kung inaakala mong laging sobrang mahal ng mga meditation sessions dito sa Dubai, well kapatid, you have to try Illuminations at JLT.
Marami silang classes, meditation sessions and seminars na inooffer every day, at hindi lahat ng ito ay may bayad. They offer FREE seminars. Check out their calendar and try to spot those FREE classes and sessions.
Learn more about the heritage of Dubai and the UAE.
Libre lang ang mag-ikot sa Al Fahidi Historical District sa Dubai, kaya kung feel mong mag-explore during the break, go head for this historical neighborhood.
Very Intramuros ang feel, but with the Emirati twist, of course. Just a walk through the neighborhood will fire up your imagination about how life used to be before skyscrapers started rising above the desert.
This neighbourhood is also a great spot for photoshoots! Aba, i-update na ang profile photos sa Facebook!
Meet a turtle!
May ongoing turtle rehabilitation project ngayon ang Dubai—and the best part is the outdoor enclosure is open to the public!
Pumunta lang sa bagong hotel, Jumeirah Al Naseem, at doon niyo makikita ang mga turtles na inaalagaan nila. Magandang educational trip ito para sa mga bata.
The Eid break won’t include a Wednesday, but if you find time on a Wednesday, feel free to do to the area to join in a feeding session! Exciting diba?
No need to book, no need to register. Just drop by!
When all else fails, the city’s water shows never disappoint.
Some of the world’s best water shows are found in Dubai—and that’s a fact.
The dancing fountain right in front of the Burj Khalifa never gets old! Kahit siguro gaano ka na katagal sa Dubai, hinding hindi ka magsasawa na panooring ang Dubai Fountain eh. Nakaka-relax, in so many ways.
Bukod dito, isa pang must-see ang Imagine show sa Dubai Festival City. Ibang level din dito!Water, fire, light and music spectacle talaga! Not to mention, world-record-holder ang show na ito. You really have to watch it yourself.
