24 last-minute Eid getawaysBe the first to comment 9 October 2012
This year, Eid al-Adha is likely to fall around Thursday October 25, meaning the majority of us are in for a long weekend thanks to the public holiday. But while mooching around the pool for three days is all well and good, Time Out implores you to take advantage of the plentiful travel destinations in close proximity to Dubai. We’ve picked 24 destinations – the nearest just a short drive away, the furthest no more than five and a half hours by plane – and categorised them by the type of activities, sights and attractions you can expect to find there.
We’ve kept our eyes peeled for special Eid deals, and have given you an idea of how much your return flight will cost, listing the cheapest return flight options we could find during the Eid weekend (provisionally October 25-28), at time of going to press. Last but not least, we’ve recommended a place where you can rest your head – from budget to mid-range to high-end options. Now all you need to do is book, pack and get out of town.
