We are immensely fortunate this year to get a whopping five-day break thanks to Eid falling next to a weekend. Some of you may have splashed out by treating yourselves to a full-blown holiday somewhere exotic, while some of you may still counting your dirhams after spending the summer with friends and family abroad. In this case, you might want to look into some budget friendly options that don’t necessarily call for leaving Dubai.
