With Eid Al Adha holidays just right around the corner, many UAE residents are already preparing to make the most out of it. After all, it’s one of the few remaining long weekends left this year. While you gear up with your travel plans, do throw a look around UAE’s backyard.
There’s still fun to be had by just moving around the nearby places. These destinations will thrill you. And what’s more, they can be reached by a vehicle. So, unleash your adventure streak.
1. Al Qudrah Lake, Dubai
Al Qudra Lake is just inside Dubai, so it’s a quick drive. The man-made lake is home to many species of birds and boasts a view of the sunset that is unrivaled around Dubai.
2. Jebel Hafeet or Jebel Jais
Why wouldn’t you go to either Jebel Hafeet or Jebel Jais? Both are popular mountains in the UAE and is a great spot to get an all-encompassing view of the city below. There’s also Al Ain Zoo below Jebel Hafeet – another worthwhile stop in Al Ain.
3. Liwa Oasis, Abu Dhabi
It’s a long drive – an insanely long drive, but a visit to Liwa is a must. Especially if you haven’t been to the Empty Quarter at least once in your UAE expat lifetime.
