Perhaps it's the fact that Dubai is a mere 45-minute flight away makes us want to go.
But if you saw the activities on offer for this weekend in the Gulf's favourite city-to-visit, then you'd understand just why. Besides its emirate's high-rise towers, lush beachside restaurants and its most Instagram-mable sights, there is one other reason to visit Dubai this weekend.
Because it's the UAE's 47th National Day on Dec 2, which means there are a ton of activities, hotels and foodie offers like never before.
Check out just a few of these super ideas and offers happening in Dubai this weekend...
1. Because the evening Desert Safari tours in Dubai is best done during winter
And word has it, Dubai's weather just got cooler, which means dunes, sunsets and a whole lot of desert fun.
Imagine a night playing with the sand, being treated to a lovely dinner in the middle of a secluded desert and basking in the culture of the Emiratis. Well, that's what the notorious Desert Safari tours offer.
And they've become quite known for it.
Lucky us, there's the app Klook that comes through with INSAAAANE offers for these Dubai excursions. The offer on Klook per person for the safari is approximately SAR 120. That's a steal!
The best part is the app gets you an instant confirmation after you purchase offers from its app that will get you mobile tickets in a jiffy.
2. Because there's a weekend cruise and it's super romantic
Nothing screams romance (even if you're spouse-less) like a dinner cruise on a dhow at the Dubai Creek. This Klook offer has free hotel pick-up, takes you to the dhow where you'll feast on a magical Arab buffet while being entertained by the mystical art of tanourah dancing.
The best part is that with every offer on this genius app, you get to check out other users' review- this includes other traveller's use of Klook's offers and the activity or destination itself. There's around 5 million user-generated reviews on its platform, ensuring you get to carefully create the weekend of your liking.
3. The entire FAM can enjoy the endless rides at the IMG Worlds of Adventure for less
I mean if the whole fam is along for the ride (or shall we say rides) might as well make use of an offer that can get y'all trying EVERYTHING out for only SAR 191. If you go to IMG and get tickets at the door, it could be 41.5% more than this offer.
Ummm, yes please!
Klook even promises its users that if people find better deals anywhere else, they'd refund the difference.
4. You can see the city's entire skyline while having lunch at the Burj Khalifa's 125th floor
The world's tallest tower, The Burj Khalifa, sure is pretty to look at from afar- since you get to take the proper tourist selfie and all. But imagine having your lunch in its 125th floor.
Well look no further, for there is ALSO an offer for just that.
Experience your luxe life with an offer that will allow you to view Dubai from At The Top's observation deck- followed by a three-course set lunch.
5. Because Dubai Parks and Resorts might just be your new favorite place
Dubai Parks and Resorts is the fairytale/cinema come to life- after all, it is home to the Motiongate Park, Legoland (and its waterpark), and the Bollywood Parks.
There's defo no room for boredom with an offer that will allow you to checkout a Hollywood-inspired theme park, allow you to bask in the Bollywood legends' work, enjoy over 40 Lego-themed rides (at Legoland). All that for SAR 154, best believe.
6. Because what's a weekend without seeing dinosaurs or watching a garden glow?
For only SAR56, Klook can have one day out of your weekend be super imaginative and thrilling. This offer will take you to the Dubai Garden Glow, one of Dubai's finest attractions, with 'the biggest Dinosaur park', a glow-in-the-dark garden and INCREDIBLE concepts for a theme park.
7. Visit the UAE's first tropical forest away from a forest
If you're an animal lover or you're fascinated with the forestry, then you've found a spot.
The Green Planet in Dubai has more than 3,000 plants and animals within an enclosed bio-dome that allows visitors access. Klook's got the most budgeted entrance ticket you'll find for this place for only SAR82.
8. Don't forget there's now a Warner Bros. World in nearby Abu Dhabi- everyone needs to see this at least ONCE
And it's the first Warner Bros indoor theme park in the world, right next to Dubai- a mere 30-minute drive away. For only SAR 254 per person, you get to go in and explore the worlds of your favorite movie characters coming to life. There's the Warner Bros. land, Gotham City, Metropolis, Bedrock, Cartoon Junction and more.
Plus, a myriad of super-thrilling rides from Batman to Bugs Bunny-themed, Superman and Scooby Doo too.
9. Enjoy a bunch of water slides and rejuvenate by the 700-meter beach at the Atlantis Aquaventure Waterpark
Experience the fun rides and attractions at the Atlantis Aquaventure Waterpark at your very own pace. The Lost Chambers Aquarium is a favorite for those visiting Dubai, giving you a view of the 65,000 marina creatures.
Best part is that entrance will only cost ya SAR 97, through Klook, that is.
