5 things to do this UAE National Day

by RAKBANK

The residents of UAE will be celebrating National Day on Dec 2nd, 2016. National Day is celebrated in the UAE with much fervor - UAE flags are hoisted in several places, joyful celebrations can be seen in malls and community centers, car processions and painted faces can be seen on the road, along with general merriment around the country. 

 

How do you plan to make the most of the National Day Holiday? We have put together a list of activities, which you can enjoy with your friends and family. They are: 

 

1.    Plan a short Holiday:  A short break away from the city is the perfect way to rewind and recharge yourself. There are numerous nearby locations like Turkey, Armenia, Georgia etc. which serve as ideal destinations for a short holiday. Although a 4-day holiday might not seem like enough, sometimes even a short holiday is sufficient to refresh your mind and energize your body. Not to mention that it's an excellent way to spend some quality time with your family and friends. With RAKBANK?s travel offers you can plan your trip on a budget. Plan your upcoming trip with musafir.com and take advantage of fantastic flight & hotel deals with your RAKBANK Card. You can get up to 5% off on over 270 airlines & 15% off on rooms in over 75,000 hotels around the world. 

 

2.    Relax with a Staycation: Another good way to unwind and celebrate the National Day Holiday is a relaxing weekend at one of the many lavish resorts in the UAE.  A staycation is the perfect way to get-away from the humdrum of your daily routine and yet enjoy the festivities of the UAE National Day. You can head to Ajman Saray in Ajman - The grand resort is fronted by palm trees and faces its own private beach. In addition to food and beverage outlets linking the hotel to the local heritage of Ajman, The Ajman Saray is home to the first GOCO Hospitality GOCO-branded spa concept, which aims to fuse local rituals with urban lifestyle, highlighting the heritage of each location. Simply use your RAKBANK card and avail a 10% discount on stay and 20% discount on food and beverages. Click here to learn more. 

 

3.    Dhow Cruise: Experience the nostalgic Arabic past when dhows sailed by tranquil waters, while enjoying a delectable traditional Arabic buffet spread. You can hop aboard a dhow and enjoy an unforgettable evening, witnessing the height of opulence merging with a heartwarming sense of Bedouin tradition. You can get in touch with Al Mansour Dhow - they offer a 2-hour dhow cruise on the Dubai Deira creek. From refreshing beverages to artfully prepared food platters, the international buffet at the Al Mansour Dhow features a plethora of Middle Eastern choices prepared by award-winning chefs. The two-hour Dhow Cruise lets you experience the best of old and new Dubai, with its hustle and bustle on Deira side, and breath taking skyline views of Dubai. Just use your RAKBANK Card to avail 15% discount on the total bill. 

 

4.    Enjoy Authentic Emirati Cuisine: Every dish and recipe tells a story - the culinary tales they collect offer insights that extend far beyond the kitchen and nutrition. Whether it's a quiet dinner with your family or a get-together with your friends, you cannot go wrong with an evening of delicious Emirati food with your loved ones. There are plenty of Emirati restaurants in the UAE where you can savour traditional Emirati cuisine. One of them is Aseelah (located in in Radisson Blu, Deira) - the Emirati restaurant boasts of a variety of dishes, full of flavors embracing authentic Emirati culture as well as modern Dubai. Choose from a variety of meat, fish and rice dishes seasoned with flavorful saffron, ginger, cardamom, thyme and turmeric. What's more? With your RAKBANK Card, enjoy 25% discount on your total bill. 

 

5.    Go for a Desert Safari: One way to celebrate the local culture is to experience the thrills of the dunes and witness spectacular views of the sunset during a Desert Safari Tour. Upon reaching the camp, you can say hello to a camel, get photographed with a falcon, let henna adorn your hands, and dig your toes into the sand at the camp site. You can enjoy the true Arabian ambience with Skyland Tourism - their Bedouin campsite boasts of traditional Arabian carpets, low tables and cushions for comfortable seating and relaxation. Further, their desert safari package consists of a Camel Ride, Sand Boarding, Henna Painting, Arabic Dress Photograph opportunity, International and BBQ Buffet Dinner (Veg and Non Veg), Tanoura Show, Belly Dance Show and a Fire Show. Other services can also be availed at an extra cost. Use your RAKBANK Card and enjoy a 50% discount on the desert safari by Skyland Tourism.

 

Whether you end up taking a holiday with your family or a nice quiet meal with your other half, we wish all the residents of UAE a very happy National Day and hope you have a relaxing break.
