Are you staying in the UAE this Eid and don’t know what to do or where to go? Well, forget flying away for the holiday as I round up a list of things you must do.
1. Race by driving a Jaguar
Drive a Jaguar or a Mercedes AMG on Yas Marina’s race circuit in Abu Dhabi. You can also get a passenger experience on the circuit instead. Yes, the very same one that hosts the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix.
2. Bounce at Jump Boxx
Whether you’re looking to keep the kids entertained or just looking for an experience that’ll get your adrenaline pumping, Jump Boxx is the perfect place for that. A trampoline park that will get your blood rushing, and more importantly, it’s for kids and adults.
3. Titan the Robot visits Yas Island
World-famous android, Titan the Robot, will visit iconic attractions on Yas Island over Eid. You can meet the Titan as he’ll be making stops at Cascade Dining (September 13, 14, 16 and 18), Yas Mall (September 15) and The District at Du Forum (September 17). Get ready to chat and take photos with him as he impresses you with his dance moves.
4. Go bowling
We can’t think of a better way to spend your time than at one of Dubai’s top bowling alleys trying to land that double strike. It’s a cheap and fun way to spend time with friends and family.
5. Go island hopping
We’re referring to a weekend escape at Zaya Nurai Island, Abu Dhabi’s premiere luxury destination. It’s an hour away from Dubai.
6. Nickelodeon Playpark in Dubai Festival City

7. Al Capone Jazz Band
A band from Italy that features a unique combination of classic jazz and swing music. You, as well, can participate and feel like you’re one of them as it involves the entire audience singing and clapping. They will do an appearance at Mall of the Emirates on September 13 and 14, and at Dragon Mart 2 from September 15 till 17.
8. Comedy Illusion Show at City Center Mirdif
These comedy illusionists will combine stunning tricks that’ll make you feel like you’re part of Now You See Me in real life. Expect mind-blowing magic and hilarious comedy shoved into one-action packed show at City Center Mirdif from September 11 till 17.
