long 1

Loads of schools and businesses are getting a long weekend starting tomorrow and we couldn't be more excited about it! It's already shaping up to be a busy weekend and that extra day off will really come in handy.

If you're at a loss of what to do, we have some cool ideas for you.

But first, here's a golden oldie to get you in the weekend mood.

Visit Discovery Gardens

If you haven't visited these cool gardens out near Dubai Autodrome yet now is the time. With over 45 million (yes, you read that number right) flowers on display you can't help but think this place is super impressive.


Get your tickets sorted

Dubai Comedy Fest starts tomorrow night with seven of the regions hottest acts ready to take the stage. Get your tickets here, you won't want to miss out...we've been looking forward to this for months.


Get your balls out for the Rugby World Cup

And watch the Quarter finals at Garden Fest, Media One hotel- they're offering all Lovin Dubai fans a hefty discount on food and drink!!!

We'll see you there!


Get a little paddle action in

We've all seen the Burj Al Arab. But have you seen if floating on a large surf board in the middle on the sea? This is half an exercise and half a chilled activity, and if you want to take the ultimate Burj Al Arab selfie this is the place to take it.

If you're just planning a lazy weekend

Why don't you spend it poolside? Whether you're on a budget or you're up for splashing' the cash- check out our list of the slickest pools in Dubai!


Take a turn about old Dubai

We're so lucky to live in such an incredible futuristic city it's easy to forget the amazing cultural element in old Dubai. Get off at Al Ghubaiba Metro station, visit the Heritage Village before taking an abra (a traditional wooden boat for the cheap cheap price of AED 1) over to visit the gold souk on the other side of the creek.

If you fancy yourself as a bit of an art connoisseur

Art Fair Dubai is back from the 15th- 17th of October (The 15th is for the VIP's only though we're afraid!). They'll be hosting 30 International art galleries as well as independent artists!

Head to the slopes for an afternoon of skiing

Seems like an obvious one but raise your hand if you're actually done it?! Get off at Mall of the Emirates Metro station and get your adrenaline flowing for an hour or two. Then pop behind the mega mall for a great curry in a little local spot.
